She’s A Super Freak?

We have a new role-model here at Emergiblog today. Her name is Nurse Margaret Kissack and she would like to have a word with you ladies.

It looks like she is using her nursing pin as a top button because she doesn’t want to show cleavage.

And I don’t know what is coming out of that bag but it sure doesn’t look like a syringe to me, feminine or otherwise.

Emergiblog is rated “PG-13” so I won’t say what I really think it is.

Don’t let that stern demeanor fool you for one minute.

Who do you think was the inspiration behind the line “She’s a super freak, she’s super freakin’ yowwwww….”

I shall say no more.

Except to give my deepest apologies to Rick James, may he rest in peace.


Well, I was going to regale you with the pathology reports on the dermoid “cysters”. Let’s put it this way, Barry the cyst could have applied to Harvard.

I have the only child on earth who clones herself.

Instead, let me ask a rhetorical question:

What do you do when a 10-inch, dark pink worm presents itself to the world through the mouth of a human being?

You name it “Freddie” and send it pathology.

That’s my rhetorical answer.

And how was your day?

    Nurse Kissack may be implicated, but it won’t be for the worm thing…..

    That’s it for me. No more TV or fiction necessary. I’ll just read nursing blogs from here on.

    We know that worm wasn’t down there alone in the dark.
