Large Clamp Please

Let’s face it, everything is funnier in the middle of the night. After about 5 cups of coffee, and no sleep you just get the giggles. On my last night shift, a favorite nursing supervisor was in charge, and I decided to have a little funCLAMP. I called her and asked if she knew where to find the Jass clamp.
“The what clamp?” she asked.
“The Jass clamp. J, A, S, S.” I said.
“Well what’s it for?”
“It’s for draining Lar abscesses.” I said. “The full name is Lar Jass clamp.”
“Okay, I’ll see if I can track it down.” she said.
Over the next hour, she searched every corner of the hospital, asking everyone if they had seen the Lar Jass clamp. She finally called me back and reported that she couldn’t find it anywhere.
“Can you slowly repeat what you are looking for?” I asked.
Slowly, she said, “The. Lar. Jass. Clamp.”

I couldn’t help laughing at that point, and understanding finally found her.
“Oh you’re going to get a large ass beatdown.” she said.

That was a great story! I’ve heard most of them, but not that one. Mind if I use it?! Enjoy your week.

My husband was in construction and once asked his coworker to go find a fallopian tube. Obviously the coworker could not find a fallopian tube and his boss wasn’t able to find his sense of humor and he got a little talking to but it was worth the laugh.
