Falling off my chair laughing!
Oh Grief, CS, I just have to share this with you. Heard on the news now about a "gentleman" going around in Cambridgeshire with a black briefcase, knocking on the doors of the houses and telling the woman that he is a doctor offering free checks for breast cancer!!!!!!! Can you believe that some woman actually believed him and fell for it? He has been caught and these stupid woman are now filing sexual assualt charges against him. Can he not in return file stupidity charges against them? Geeeeeez!

Yes, one does wonder whether in some instances Stupidity ought to be an arrestable offense. I gather he was around 80 in the shade, and that these two gullable women got completely undressed for the breast exam
Reminded me of the old days, when I was working at a leading London hospital in Chelsea. A bogus and unqualified doctor managed to get employed with false papers, and though we other junior doctors kept saying to the admin -- SURELY this guy can't be qualified ? Have you checked him out thoroughly, it was only when a young woman complained that he had insisted that she undress completely and have a full gynae exam by him when she had arrived in Casualty complaining of an ingrown toenail, that he was discovered !
