I wanted to thank everyone for their comments… It was a tough decision with so many funny stories and jokes, but after conferring with a good friend we’ve come up with a winner…

The EMS Community is Well known for it’s Humor. From the West coast to the East coast, we are all the same. I am a paramedic on the Gulf Coast. A few years ago I ran a cardiac arrest. This day I had an EMT Student with me doing her first clinical ride with EMS. Upon arrival, Firefighters were in the process of BVM and good compressions. It’s Summer, this code is being run on the front lawn. As I lay down on the freshly mowed grass, I get my intubation stuff ready. I insert the #4 Mac and visulize the cords, however, I must have lifted just enough to release the gastric pressure and I was suddenly covered by semi-digested chicken noodle soup! The spew was epic! Like a hand-grenade in a cream-puff. We continued the code and went off to the hospital. After we delivered the patient to the ED Staff, I sneaked off to the bathroom to clean up. Well, just before I go into the bathroom, I hear my Student talking to others in the EMS ready room about the call. I grab some saltine crackers, and after I clean myself up, I crush up the crackers and cover my hair. I return to the ready room just in time for my student to point to my head and expound upon the call. At this point I grabbed some of the broken crackers and started to eat them. My Student turned an awesome shade of green and ran out the door… The introduction into EMS Humor!!
I’m sorry, that right there is funny. And yes, I realize I’m not right in the head. :)
Congrats, Bill. Email me your contact information at email@example.com and I’ll ship it right out to you!
