Meredith was relaying funny medical and vet school stories a few days back, mostly those of her friends. One of them came from a friend of her friend, who was in medical school this past year.

Apparently he had begun his practicals and had been doing fine until he got to his OB/GYN practical. And then he did horribly. He’d get flustered, embarrassed, and would stumble on his words trying to speak to the patient. Finally he learned that if he hummed while going about the process he wouldn’t feel as nervous. So as he felt his way around, he would sit there humming to relax him.

One day he was sitting in with a middle-aged woman, and happened to have his fingers…um….inside her while he sat there happily humming to himself. For a second she looked at him oddly, then burst out laughing. He asked her if he had tickled her, and she shook her head. “Do you know what you were humming?” He was absolutely mortified, and couldn’t remember for the life of him what he had been humming moments earlier. “No….” he said, with an overwhelming hesitance.

“You were humming the Oscar Meyer Weiner song. Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner….
