Our first post comes in from our friend The Crusty Ambulance Driver.
After him!! He’s having a seejure!! It’s not every day that you get to call in the Fire Department’s helicopter to help you catch your patient.
Ever hear the one about the One Armed Fisherman? He caught a fish that was (holds up arm) “THIS BIG!”
Har. Yea, our friend The Happy Medic chimed in with that one in my comments section a while back ago. He just won the contest 🙂
Oh, and you can get Swine Flu from Fish, right? Guys? Right?
Folks, sometimes Life in Manchvegas gets a tad strange. Our buddy Walt T. tells the story of a woman who just was having a bad day.
Ok, so this is just some gosh darn funny stuff. Prepare yourself for Ambulance Driver’s contribution. Don’t read this in church. You probably should pee before you read it too. I laughed my ever lovin arse off.
Mack 505 over at Notes from Mosquito Hill discusses those weird things we do with the other social miscreants we work with. I’m sure you’ll know what he means here. EMS is a family. A horribly, horribly dysfunctional family.
Lt Michael Morse, or L-T as I call him, over at Rescuing Providence has written this short, punchy, and very, very funny post. It’s everything you need to know about life wrapped up in one, eh, “little package”.
Happy Medic once told me that I could improve my blog by adding “More Explosions and Bikinis”. I agree. Thanks to EMS Chick and Just Me, Just My Blog I bring you two posts featuring explosions written by female EMS bloggers who empirical evidence has shown, sometimes might wear a bikini.
Making up this month’s Handover has allowed me to find this blog from a blogger by the name of Philly Dan. He was doin ambo work when Medics like me may have been in diapers. Great reading over there. Thanks for submitting!
Lumo, over at My Life in A&E, a UK Medic blog that I read a lot had a late submission that just squeaked in past the deadline. He asked me if it fit the description of a funny call.
Thanks heavens for stupid people. Without them, the Emergency Medical Services would be boring. Stupidity makes our world go ’round. As my momma always told me, “If you stick your finger too far up inside there, you’ll poke your brain and get a paulsy!”
Alright folks! Hope you made it down here. Great job to all of the great bloggers who submitted some funny, funny posts. What follows is some other posts from around the web that I thought needed some attention.
Oh, and some shameless self promotion too. Shamless self promotion.
One of my favorite bloggers who seems to be WAY smarter than me, Rogue Medic, has written a post on Correlation and Causation, featuring one of his favorite comic strips. There’s cows, and a lot of the stuff that he’s famous for. Great stuff as always.
Greg, over at Training Success is a buddy of mine who I finally prodded into becoming a blogger. He’s a Haz-Mat wizard. He wrote a good post about role playing in training scenarios from a class that I was in. Check it out.
My cousin is a blogger who I really want to come to Blogger or WordPress. She writes great, but her blog is over at Myspace. She guest posted her funniest medical story on my blog. Here it is. – You can find her Myspace blog on the post. She does a lot of political stuff.
Here’s some shameless self-promotion 🙂 I write on a blog called The Awesome EMS blog – I wrote this here a while back ago and I think that the video is freakin hilarious. I give you Skateboard Fail. Any blogger who wants to co-write on this blog is welcome, I need help on it.
And with that, this edition of The Handover Blog Carnival has come to an end. Y’all rock for coming over and having a read. Be sure to look for the next edition coming out next month over at The Insomniac’s Guide to Ambulances. The theme will be Kids – Seen and Not Hurt. Now, ladies and gentlemen, allow me to play you out.
