From The Mouths Of Nursing Sisters

One of our patients last night was a classical scholar.

I could tell this because, as he grinned at me in his ethanolic miasma, while my colleague tried to patch up the head injury he sustained falling down drunk, I observe, tatooed across his epigastrium, in a Gothic Calligraphy, the phrase "Homo Sum".

I remarked on this.

'Oh', said Sister, 'I thought it said Homo Simpson!'
