      Was going to try to post this in the Humor forum, am not entirely sure how. This is intended to take some of the edge off our varying views of the, um, medical issue that has bonded with Gummit (govt.) to save all our lives, or at least to mess with all our lives.
      Your questionable doctors in this real-life story may not be the same as mine. But I’ve already said that.
      If nothing else, this should raise awareness of it not being easy to be quack doctor. Respect! Add you own from fiction, of course, if you like.

      In case you haven’t seen _A Day at the Races lately: The unqualified doc in this story is trying to do a good deed, to save the sanitarium–But the only almost-doctor they could find in the time allowed (those trying to save it) is a…horse doctor! Those Marx writers: Kaufman et al, more prophetic than Nostradamus!

      In this scene, they want to investigate the background of Dr. Hackenbush. He has some tactics that those called before Congressional committees would envy.
      Wikipedia reports: “Groucho’s character was originally named “Quackenbush” but was changed to “Hackenbush” over threats of lawsuits by several real doctors named Quackenbush.”

      Warning! Not for the squeamish: I suspect what they are using is a cow’s heart or such for one effect.
