Sometimes Stuff is Funnier When It’s Random
This “game” is better played with a group of 2 or more players, but you can also play it alone. Here’s how it works… You are given an incomplete medical document where every so often a word is missing. It could be a progress note, a history and physical, a procedure note, a hospital memo, etc.
Before looking at the medical document, you are given a list of parts of speech – noun, verb, adjective, diagnosis, person’s name, etc. (Don’t worry, no past participles :) You or your friends and colleagues fill in those parts of speech at random.
Then you plug your answers into the document. Try one out, but make sure your bladder isn’t full.
Now this is absolutely hilarious. It is best experienced if you are in a literal-type mood and you have a vivid, visual imagination. Or, it also works well if you are in a middle school-type mood, where bodily functions are particularly funny for some reason.
You’ll laugh with almost every click of the button. Every time you click, three random health care terms are put together. The result is a funny concoction that, if you think about it for a moment, could conjure up a hilarious visual.
This thing can be addictive, especially if you’re sitting there with someone else. Your cheeks will hurt from laughing so hard.
