A professor teaching medicine at the university was tutoring a class on 'Observation'. He took out a jar of yellow-colored liquid. "This," he explained, "is urine. To be a doctor, you have to be observant to color, smell, sight, and taste."

After saying this, he dipped his finger into the jar and put it into his mouth. His class watched on in amazement, most, in disgust. But being the good students that they were, the jar was passed, and one by one, they dipped one finger into the jar and then put it into their mouth.

After the last student was done, the lecturer shook his head. "If any of you had been observant, you would have noticed that I put my 2nd finger into the jar and my 3rd finger into my mouth."

Lesson learned!

I guess the pun was unintentional!

This is a very old gambit that goes back many decades.

Most have used an apple juice base with some vinegar in the mix. Some have used hard cider with a bit of alum added.

I was the "last man" in the line in my test and just drank the little jar down. Some puked after I did so. But I'd been around just a bit before.

Beware the a.. that does present real urine however.... he he he

Hey KoanYorel!

Yeah, I was expecting the "apple juice" at the end of the story. :flowers:

That must have been funny to see the expressions of the people vomiting when you chugged the 'urine.' :thumbsup:

Ayup Doc, you and I have traveled similar paths.... (We know)

I did have some problems getting those that "passed" to go out for dinner or just drinks thereafter tho'..... giggle.

Yup! Did they take you up on your offer to buy the first round of 'drinks?'

The world becomes a different place after certain experiences. :flowers:

Strangely, they always ordered vodka or gin drinks. None ordered a simple ale? Or even a whiskey... IDK...

Well you know what they say, "De gustibus non est disputandum" or basically “There’s no accounting for taste.” :thumbsup:
