The doc said it would only hurt as much as paying taxes, so Timmay demanded surgery

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...

The kidney stone story is cover for the actual procedure. He's having a cranialanalectomy (CAE).

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.

For those who don't know, brain surgery is never “a minor surgical procedure.”

‘Minor surgery’ is an oxymoron.

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.
