Dear Dr Shipman, My name is Barak O'bummer and I am the two hundred and sixty-fourth most important person in the Whitehouse. I have the vital job of defending the Oval Office from termites. Yesterday I hit my thumb with an hammer and it turned black. What should I do?
Dear Barak, Most Doctors would recommend removal of the thumb by amputation. However, tomorrow you would, most likely, hit your forefinger with a hammer, so that would also have to be removed. Then your digitus III, would have to go, and so on. Why endure this endless suffering? For you, like most of my patients, I recommend euthanasia. Its the best and final solution.
