Have we gone overboard with #MeToo?

Here’s a sad example of the witch hunt caused by the flood of sexual abuse allegations:

After seven years of medical school and training, a good friend of mine has been fired for one minor indiscretion. He slept with one of his patients and can no longer work in the profession.

What a waste of time, effort, training and money. He’s still paying off his school loans. This just goes to show you that one minor mistake can ruin your life.

Thoughts and prayers for him and his family. He really is a great guy and a brilliant veterinarian.

 

Random musings:

A chap’s wife is back on the warpath again. She was up for making a sex movie last night, and all he did was suggest they should hold auditions for her part. (Hospital visiting hours are 5:00 to 6:00.)

I’ve accidentally swallowed some Scrabble tiles. My next crap could spell disaster.

My missus packed my bags, and as I walked out the front door. She screamed: “I wish you a slow and painful death, you bastard!” I replied: “Oh, so now you want me to stay???”

The other night, my wife asked me how many women I’d slept with. I told her: “Only you. All the others kept me awake all night!” (The doctor says I should be able to see again in about ten days. The broken arm will take about a month).

 

An Atheist in the Woods 

An atheist was walking through the woods.

‘What majestic trees!’
‘What powerful rivers!’
‘What beautiful animals!’
He said to himself.

As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.

He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him.

He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer.

He tripped and fell on the ground.

He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.
 In that instant, the Atheist cried out: ‘Oh my God!’

Time stopped.
The bear froze.
The forest was silent.

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.

‘You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don’t exist, and even credit creation to cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?’

The atheist looked directly into the light, and said: ‘It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the bear a Christian?’

‘Very well’, said the voice.

The light went out.  The sounds of the forest resumed.  And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head and spoke:

‘Lord, bless this food, which I am about to receive from Thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.’
