The Wrong Kind Of Doctors

found on The Elephant In The OR

As much as computer virus experts know about computer viruses, it doesn't seem to help them avoid getting sick. Likewise, doctors aren't so hot when it comes to diagnosing malware problems (at this stage in the story, the elephant is still just an intern and the other character is the real doctor). The analogy between computer viruses and biological viruses is limited and breaks down if you try to take it too far.

That being said, I think perhaps the next time I encounter the Blue Screen of Death I'll have to remember to call it severe cyanosis.
