Paging Dr. Hoffman. Dr. Douglas Hoffman.

They don't use wolverines during this procedure, btw. Garden moles work much better, don't they, Doug?


  1. Thanks for the link to a much-needed laugh!

  2. Oh, dear. I've had a similar dream. Not of a uni-nostril, but of a plane crashing down into the vast outback of Australia. I was flying from Sydney to Bangkok at the time...

  3. And that is why I read Scott Adams.

  4. Nasal packing, the (very long and drippy) cross we ENTs have to bear. *sigh* Septoplasty really is a fine operation, yet signing folks up can be tough as nails (oops. Trite. Tough as . . . tough as . . . tough as those stainless steel osteotomes I use to chisel through bony septal spurs!) Why? Because they've had a friend or relative who invariably "almost died" when the doc took out the packing.

    Not all of us use packing. We of the younger generation tend to use thin plastic splints. YES, this is better than packing. They come out lickety-split with no pain at all.

    Scott Adams' biggest mistake: he didn't come to me ;o)
