Pass it!! You’re a baby, just like your boss.
I hope it hurts like hell having said that, I wish him the best
The doc said it would only hurt as much as paying taxes, so Timmay demanded surgery
Being that he’s a huge pr*ck, it might take days to pass it.
Putting his stones back where they belong???
i hope he remembers to pay for it, unlike his taxes
Gee, and all this time I have been saying that Timmy has no stones. I stand corrected.
Switch his chart with someone who is going in for a brain transplant so he can finally get one.
May his doctor be as competent at surgery as he is at filing a tax return. And may his doctor get the same slap on the wrist if things go wrong...
Doctors in the Washington area perform this procedure thousands of times a year. The relapse rate is said to be close to 90% and many sufferers require multiple CAEs each month.
A recent shot of Turbotax Timmy will be found below. I'm VERY HAPPY to report that the procedure is as painful as kidney stones.
Passing kidney stones is no fun, kind of like paying taxes. Timmy’s probably getting lithotripsy.
There’s a more fun procedure where they go in through existing openings and retrieve. DAMHIKT!
‘Minor surgery’ is an oxymoron.
oh, the procedure for removing ones cranium from ones rectum is now a minor surgery. i did not know this. wait... that’s not what they’re doing? my bad.
Sounds like they’re going to “scope” him, and how they can describe that as minimally invasive is insane. Think of a 1/4 - 3/8 of inch scope, going through the ureter towards your kidney. Usually you are awake, unless you’ve bribed the doctor to knock you out. The local anesthetic gel/lube they use does nothing for the pain. If you can, never let them do anything other than lithotripsy. It is the most humane method of getting rid of stones. (I’ve had 3 scopings, 8 lithotripsies, and an open surgery to remove a huge stone). By far, litho is the way to go.
For turbo Tax timmy any type of surgery is minor. why is that you ask? timmy has the brain the size of a peanut, so it does not take much to operate on the peanut brained treasury secretary.
Cutting off that lil’ thang is minor.
Well, I hope they have to go get that boulder in his Kidney and pull it out through his teeny weeny wee wee with a pair of 5”jaw Channel Locks, myself....the little bastard!
Nothing trivial, I hope!
Since when to they conduct audits at George Washington University Hospital?
