Thereonce was a chirurgeon from Nordskogen,
Whosutured while on a toboggan.
Heended the ride
Allsewed up inside,
Andhad to cut and begin again.
Goodgentles of Northshield,
Fromthe above, you can see why I went into medicine instead of comedy, although,believe it or not, this was not my best limerick. I enjoy a good joke as much as the nextperson, even at my own expense, and even can enjoy a practical joke. Do be careful in this month devoted to humor,though, to consider the effects of your humor in a playground filled with sharpand hard toys, from weapons to needles. We have been very fortunate in the last year to not have a major injurywhich can be traced to people fooling around. Let’s please keep it that way.
Iam currently planning on attending Coronation, Provost Challenge, Feast ofFools, Crown Tourney, Quest for Camelot, and Moorish Tavern. Please stop by and talk to me if you willalso be at one of these events, especially if you have any questions orcomments on the chirurgeonate.
Ona last note, we have a new apprentice chirurgeon, Coenrad of Windhaven. For the current chirurgeons, please help himfinish his apprenticeship quickly by letting him work with you and sendingreports to me.
