Ever see someone bleeding from the tip of his penis? Neither had I.

"Why's this happening, doc?"
"I don't know."
"You don't know?"
"I don't know. Your blood is very thin, from your blood thinner. Too thin."
"And so this is what happens when it's too thin?"
"I don't know. I've never seen it before."
"And how long have you been a doctor?"
"Not that long."
"So I'll be okay?"
"We're going to try our best."
"That's not encouraging."
"Well, hopefully they'll be more encouraging once we get you to the ICU."
"I'm going to the ICU?"
"Indeed you are."
"In the morning, you mean?"
"Nope. Right now."
"So it's an emergency?"
"And it's happening because..."
"Still don't know."
"So should I be panicking?"
"Panicking isn't going to help."
"But you'd be panicking?"
"To be perfectly honest, yes, I would."
