Welcome to the Sword of Damocles hospital...

As you can see in the operating theatre we have a wide range of swords, ranging from the minuscule ones for eye surgery to humongous ones for severing a limb in one go....all held by the slenderest of threads which our specialist team abrade with a low pressure sandblaster until they snap. So we won't keep you hanging around (strapped onto the gurney), no siree!

We're so convinced of the success of our treatments, we even take escrow payments, if you as a fit a flea in a year, we get paid, or even shares in your income, paid annually, you're healthy, we're earning...

And opening next year, our Procrustean Physiotherapy unit, for the bed bound.

We're hoping to get the NHS foundation trust status in the next round of evaluations. It's on a knife edge, just my little joke...

       Is there any specific reason why all the theatre staff appear to be Cenobites?   

       Also, the uncanny resemblance between the company logo and a puzzle box is disquieting, plus most reputable* hospitals don't have "ABANDON HOPE ALL YE WHO ENTER HERE" scrawled in blood over the portico of the main entrance.   

       *Ysbity Glan Clwyd does, but being in wales they are reliant on pictograms daubed on the trilition that forms the entranceway to the "barrow". The blood is, however, human- and real. Most doctors bury their mistakes- at YGC they use them for exterior decor…

       But most honest ones should.   

       You only get the Cenobites on BUPA...NHS can't go that high. <he said remembering his student job cleaning in a hospital, I was told if you did the path lab, sometimes find fingers in the sink...lovely job>

       Why does Damocles not rhyme with monocles?

       //Why does Damocles not rhyme with monocles?   

       Towards the bottom of this bottle of British cooking sherry, they rhyme.
