First-year students at MedSchoolwere receiving their first anatomy
class with a real dead human body. They all gathered around the surgery
table with the body covered with a white sheet. The professor started
the class by telling them, "In medicine, it is necessary to have 2
important qualities as a doctor. The first is that you not be disgusted
by anything involving the human body." For an example, the Professor
pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger in the butt of the corpse,
withdrew it and stuck his finger in his mouth. "Go ahead and do the same
thing," he told his students. The students freaked out, hesitated for
several minutes, but eventually took turns sticking a finger in the butt
of the dead body and sucking on it. When everyone had finished, the
Professor looked at them and told them, "The second most important
quality is observation. I stuck in my middle finger and sucked on my
index finger. Now learn to pay attention." Posted by Hello
