I often quip "Here's your steak and lobster" when I'm hanging an IV on an NPO patient. Usually gets a pretty good giggle.

When I'm inserting a catheter on a female patient, I always tell them what I am doing before I do it - and when looking for the appropriate spot I tell them I have to survey the scenery...

I guess you just have to be there.

I recall as a recently qualified RMN (mental health) I went on secondment to the local A&E / ED as a sort of liaison exercise (with so many of our self harming patients going there frequently).

I recall the Staff Dr there who was treating a moderate sporting celebrity who just broke his tibia at a soccer game. The patient asked the doc if there was anyway of treating him without the pain involving all the manipulation...

he replied, "Well we could hold a crystal prism over it and chant some magic words..."

Perhaps not being funny "with" the patient... but he played for a crap team anyhow.
