At the Doctor's

I'm afraid you have
a very difficult to pronounce illness
complicated by the fact
it is also very difficult to spell.
Because of this all I can do
is prescribe a medication
which is equally
difficult to pronounce and spell.
This may or may not
alleviate your symptoms.
We'll see how it goes.
I appreciate your confidence in my ability
to pronounce and spell these unfamiliar words.
And for your convenience
Medical knowledge of your condition
has been abbreviated to N.I.L.
and the name of your medication
has been abbreviated to C.R.A.P.


  1. Hello Jimmy
    Thanks for visiting my blog earlier and leaving me a comment about vans and fly-tipping.

    I'm new to your blog but already I'm confident that you can pronounce and spell those unfamiliar words. :-)

  2. Hi Christine,
