This from an anonymous follower of PJ:
I’m hoping you have been invited to this August conference to save the world from this new dreaded malady.
One of the nurses in our department has figured out based on the graphics that this is a treatment for the sexual indifference of the female population faced with the onslaught of old guys with their Viagra Cialis induced erections and no willing partners to be found.
I am truly amazed at the "medicalization" of EVERYTHING which is undoubtedly then followed by a new pharmaceutical or expensive therapy to treat this very serious malady. In this case I suspect the first professionals recognized this problem centuries ago and offered their special services to relieve the symptom. This explains their longitudinal success. I wonder if that’s what this conference is promoting?
“This afternoon’s workshop is being conducted by Bambi in room 2105”.
We need to get in on the ground floor of this . Charter the American College of Hornology. Accredit one year fellowships in Hornology. Offer seminars to prepare “professionals” for certification by the College. Allow about 5 years for “grandfathering” them, but phase that out so only those who have completed our accredited programs and bought our study materials, and attended our seminars can call themselves Hornologists. Require re-certification testing, of course. Set up practice management services with one stop shopping for the accouterments of a Hornology practice. Develop catchy new acronyms and find medical conditions that seem to fit them. Market to “victims” of these dire conditions. Get on Oprah.
Most important, lobby like hell to have Hornology services included in the national health care scheme. What does Bambi think of Senators?
