By C. Douglas Phillips, MD, FACR
Welcome to my adventure into the blogosphere. On the request
of the publishers of Applied Radiology,
we are going to undertake a monumental experiment in the name of science. Our
goal, our holy grail, our quest, if you will pardon the flight of hyperbole, is
to answer that age-old question – do radiologists have senses of humor? Can
they make fun of themselves? Take a joke? Throw one back?
My job here is to throw an issue out to you, and hopefully (and this is where the real work is) make you
think, come up with your best one-liner (or two-liner, three-liner, you can do
with it as you will) and respond to my thoughts. Give and take. I will pick
topics that are of interest to me, but I will always listen to the comments,
and if someone has a particularly wonderful topic they wish to discuss, we will
put it out there. I am flexible.
Okay, so this is basically an introduction. You know what I
like. I like to make fun of everything. Myself included. I guess we will have
to keep this somewhat PC, but if we drift a bit off our moorings, hopefully we
will all remember it is in jest. I’ll be reading.
