Doctor Humor: Part #1

My wife forwarded this to me today via email. I think it's probably an old joke, but it's one I hadn't seen before so perhaps you haven't all seen it before either. There is no attribution on the email and a search on the internet brings up lots of different places quoting it, anybody know whos responsible?

Subject: New Hospital Wing

When a panel of doctors was asked to vote on adding a new wing to their hospital, the allergists voted to scratch it and the dermatologists advised no rash moves. The gastroenterologists had a gut feeling about it, but the neurologists thought the administration had a lot of nerve and the obstetricians stated they were all laboring under a misconception.

The ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted; the pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body" while the pediatricians said, "Grow up!" The psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, the surgeons decided to wash their hands of the hole Thing and the radiologists could see right through it!

The physicians thought it was a bitter pill to swallow; and the plastic surgeons said, "This puts a whole new face on the matter." The podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the urologists felt the scheme wouldn't hold water. The anesthetists thought the whole idea was a gas and the cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

In the end, the proctologists left the decision up to some asshole in administration.
