Alternative Medicine

Post by unseentangerine »

Elmer awoke disoriented under the blinding lights of the emergency room bay. Many people buzzed around him.
“Mr. Beryl, do you know where you are right now?” said a voice, as his eyes slowly adjusted.
“Wha hawppen?” he slurred.
“Do you remember the parrot? You're in the hospital.”
“Am . . . I alright?”
“Let me point to the problem.” said the doctor. He held Elmer's index finger and used it to indicate where it no longer resided on his left hand.
“Oh my God!” he cried.
“No, please, call me Patch.”
A bike horn honked.
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.
