Several medical experts were asked for their scientific opinions.
Allergists were in favour of scratching it, but Dermatologists advised not
to make any rash moves.
Gastroenterologists had a sort of gut feeling about it, but Neurologists thought the government had a lot of nerve.
Obstetricians felt certain everyone was labouring under a misconception,
Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!”
Paediatricians said, “Oh, grow up!”
Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness,
Radiologists could see right through it.
Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing – they were cut up too!
Pharmacists claimed it would be a bitter pill to swallow.
Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would “put a whole new face on the matter.”
Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.
Anaesthetists thought the whole idea was gas.
Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.
In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the known unknowing politicians.
