Backseat doctoring

Seen at one of the hospitals where I not-so-recently interviewed (why yes, this blog does work on a time lapse):

Of course, I came home and Googled around until I found the image online. Imagine my surprise, when I found that the artist of this painting does a series of Jesus-in-healthcare-themed paintings!

I like this one best:

He’s not even wearing a face mask! Talk about a God complex.

    Can you imagine if one of His hairs (and it looks like He’s been losing some recently) fell into the cavity? That’s your own on-board, first-class relic! You’d be like a nuclear submarine.

    I was allowed into my doctor’s inner sanctum for the first time the other day, to look over his shoulder at an x-ray of my foot. I turned and saw a reproduction of the Jesus in the operating room painting on the wall. I am seeking a second opinion. Really.

    This, coming from someone who now lives in semi-rural Oregon and is used to doctors at Cedars-Sinai in L.A.
