I was doing anesthesia for a handful of plastics cases yesterday, and the attending surgeon had his iPod on. Near the end of the case, "Norwegian Wood" from the Beatles' Rubber Soul album up on the shuffle.
You have a good iPod.
You know, I always wondered what this song was about.
All these years, I could never figure out what this song was about.
Are you serious? You know.
No I don't.
It's about how he spends a night with another woman! A woman who was not Yoko!
No, John Lennon was married to Yoko. Paul McCartney was married to that blonde vegetarian.
It says so right in the lyrics. Have you listened to the lyrics?
But what's "Norwegian Wood" mean?
I don't know. Some hippy crap.
But surely it means something. Does it mean drugs?
You know, like "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." I mean, duh.
I think it's just hippy talk.
We could easily find this out.
(Looks up "Norwegian Wood" on Wikipedia.)
Man, what did we do before the internet?
Hey, have you all seen the You Tube video with the kid singing Britney Spears?
That is hilarious. Here, let me show you guys.
(Pulls up You Tube on the room computer and starts playing the video.)
I'm sorry, I can't watch You Tube because I'm a little busy PERFORMING SURGERY right now.
Man, the patients don't know what they're missing. Or maybe they're just really embarrassed and feigning sleep so that they don't have to talk to us.
