Okay, one more video makes it four. This one's about patients and their medication issues. Enjoy...


  1. For some reason, the female avatar reminds me of Hillary Clinton.

  2. I don't know if you're going to make it in the medical world -- you are just TOO nuts!! As a diabetic, I laughed myself sick! And parenthetically, my first inkling of diabetes was when a GP told me I had hyperglycemia.

  3. My friends think you should do these vignettes as an off-broadway play (sort of like something Wallace Shawn would do)... they thought the writing was excellent.... something to consider after you finish residency

  4. "That's what you say now. And then three years from now I'll end up dead in a factory that makes diabetes medication." CLASSIC!

  5. It is the character bits I love -- ordering the placebo because it has sugar. Also the "car accident" fact was revealed at the perfect time.

  6. Yuck, it was not so funny when I saw this same conversation in an interview with William "The Refrigerator" Perry. The guy has practically killed himself by drinking vodka instead of taking antibiotics.

    "What about your diabetes?'' a reporter asked him in late January.

    "I don't think I have that disease.''

    "What about high blood pressure?''

    "I might, I might have that one. I say 'might' because lately when I went to the doctor, he said my blood pressure is fine.''

    "Are you taking your blood pressure medicine?''

    "No, no.''

    "Are you supposed to be?''

    "Am I supposed to be taking my medicine? Yes, yes.''

    "Have you been?''

    "I take it sometimes, sometimes I don't. I mean, I'm not going to lie to you.''

    "Are you risking your life by not taking it?''

    "I don't think I'm risking my life by, you know, not taking my medicine all the time. Sometimes I take it, sometimes I don't. It just slips my mind.''

    Fridge's family members want Valerie to chop his medicine up and pour it into his food, want her to do something... William Perry does what he wants.
