#SpecialtiesIn6Words: Twitter Humor Courtesy of Emergency Physicians
I love it when a good hashtag takes off on Twitter, especially when it's one that has the potential to create a few laughs.
As Wednesday night neared it's final hour, someone somewhere in the world struck gold when they added #specialtiesin6words to their tweet. Since last night #specialtiesin6words has been used on Twitter hundreds, if not thousands, of times by providers across multiple specialties.
Upon waking up this morning and checking my timeline I immediately found myself chuckling at some of the creative and probably all to accurate depictions of emergency medicine in only six words. WARNING: some also have a hint of gentle ribbing!
I quickly realized that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share some of my favorites with you, so without further adieu...
[Update: We have tracked down the originator of this entertaining hashtag. Meet Mark Reid, MD! You can follow him on Twitter at @medicalaxioms for more insights and possible humor.]
