WASHINGTON, DC – “An important aspect that pervades every nook and cranny of our career is the putrid stench of rotting human flesh, and we would prefer that people and their noses really know what they are getting into if they want to join the profession,” said Dr. Quincy Kohldcayce, medical examiner and head lobbyist.
“That smell… that smell will live in my nose forever… that smell,” said third-year medical student Lance Lloyd, who is devastated because he likely won’t be able to become the next Dr. G, Medical Examiner; Lloyd’s olfactory bulbs just couldn’t handle his forensic pathology elective.
Now he has to deal with the fact that he still has to finish medical school, and he would like the Discovery Channel to reimburse him in the amount of 4 years of his medical school tuition.
According to Kohldcayce: “If Dr. G and similar shows had been in smell-o-vision, it likely would have encouraged people like Lance to develop other, more scent neutral career interests and goals.”
“I possibly could have avoided interaction with pre meds all together,” said Lloyd, who would also like the cable channel to reimburse him for mental pain and anguish. “I feel so violated.”
