His colleague Dr. Steve Hardman is still practicing with him. Unfortunately, Dr. Lester Wang recently left their practice.
something, something I.P. Freeley
If I remember correctly, there used to be an orthopedist in Wichita, Kansas by the name of Bonebrake.
And then there is a corrosion engineer named Rusty Strong.
Nominative Determinism in action.
Near the town where I grew up there were two doctors, an orthodontist name Dr. Footer and a podiatrist named Dr. Toothaker
My urologist asked if he could examine me and I said, “Sure, doc, have a ball!”
He laughed lightly and said, “Yeah, I’ve heard that one before.”
I think it’s funny!
No kidding, the urologist that performed my vasectomy was named Dr. Mangleson. My wife thought it was a hoot to tease me about getting ‘mangled’ when I went in for the procedure.
I live in Austin, and yep, he’s real. A lot of my wife’s co-workers have visited him.
Austin also has (had) Dr Root the dentist and Dr Casanova the OB/GYN.
Thank you! I’ll be here all week! Please tip your waiter!
Seriously though he did help me beat testicular cancer. I just wish I’d thought of that line when he was asking my approval to perform an orchiectomy.
No relation to their practices, but I did have pediatric urologist named Dr. Burpee. We also had an insurance salesman in our neighborhood named Tittsworth.
I can actually vouch for him. He was my urologist here in Austin for my Vasectomy several years back. Did a great job. No swimmers since then.
10/10 - would chop again
My birth certificate says I was delivered by Dr. Jim Stork. So that might be worth a laugh.
Two of the toughest, meanest PE coaches I ever met worked at my junior high school. Coach Balsz and Coach Hiscok. Never failed to amuse the 7th graders: “If you can’t find Balsz, just look for Hiscok.”
I think I would have chosen any other line of work had I been saddled with either of those names.
Among the more unfortunate, but not work-related, family names I have encountered are Astiger and Throldahl.
My shop teacher in 7th grade: Mrs. Nail. The other shop teacher at the school? Mr. Hit.
Mrs. Nail. Mr. Hit.
I. Not. You. Shit.
I guess I should be a politician.
Dick Chopp sounds more like a mohel to me…
