Here’s an interesting piece of this story: we don’t know if this patient is a male or a female. One might be led to believe it was a woman since it was certainly a female who said the famous line from the movie “Titanic.”
On the other hand, it’s way funnier to imagine a dude saying this while losing his grip on reality in a hospital. Thankfully, Jack never painted anybody in such a position, no matter how much they asked. Why the patient thought it was necessary to leave this line floating in midair is something that will never be answered.
The Devil Can't Count Backwards. Everyone Knows That
We have here a potent twofer of excellent stories. The second is a little simpler – a hairy man could double as a carpet. Classic. The first of the two has a little more to it.
The patient thinks he's in a much warmer place and needs to make sure by having the tale-teller count backward from one hundred. How that would actually prove he isn't the devil escapes us. We're pretty sure the Bible doesn't mention Satan's math skills anywhere.
Gordon Ramsay Would be Ashamed
When we're put under by some of that sweet knockout gas, our brains take a step back toward childhood and start to move in much simpler ways. For instance, this person asked for a peanut butter steak, which isn't served anywhere that we can think of. Maybe some fancy places in Chicago or something like that, but no self-respecting steakhouse is going to offer steak with a side of peanut butter.
DESPITE how good that sounds. Actually, peanut butter is becoming a more common burger topping. Maybe it will reach over to steak before long, too.
Oh, Yeah, I Was Totally Asleep
Was this person REALLY under the influence of anesthesia, or was he just taking the chance to show off some of his smooth moves on those pretty nurses? If that was all he had to offer in the way of a silver tongue, we hope that he was actually asleep, because we don't think that's going to convince anyone.
Then again, if he was asleep and he was still taking the opportunity to make his move, we have to give him props. Most people can't even be charming when they're fully awake. We're also assuming this was a man and that the nurses were women, but it could have been the other way around, too.
A Case of Mistaken Identity
We all know and love Freddie Mercury, the unstoppable lead singer, and writer for the band "Queen." Even people from northern Ireland know who he is. Mercury sadly died all the way back in 1991. So despite what this old woman was led to believe, he probably wasn't working as an anesthetist at any point in the last three decades.
Especially since the person in question looked nothing like Freddie Mercury. Still, the patient knew what to do. Some say she is still singing.
