Then there were the five doctors that went duck hunting.  They were
sitting in the duck blind when a duck flew over.  The obstetrician stood
up to shoot, and said "wait a minute, I think that's a male and I don't
deal with males."  Another duck flew over and the family practitioner
stood up to shoot and said "Oh wait a minute, I'm not sure if it is a
duck.  It might be a duck, but I think I'll wait and see."  Then a third
duck flew over.  The psychiatrist stood up and said "That is a duck! 
But wait, does he know he's a duck?"  and sat back down.  When the
fourth duck flew over the surgeon jumped up and shot it and turned to
the pathologist and said "Go see if that's a duck".

While clinicians know something about everything and  surgeons know
everything about something,  pathologists know everything about
everything -
but it's too late.

Tim Morken

And a surgeon once said of pathologists that the reason they always
seem to
know everything is that their elbows are closer to the books than
people's are.

My dear 'ol pathologist, God rest his soul, would always say... "If you

want to hide a $10.00 bill from a surgeon, put it in a textbook!"
