Think about this one: guy falls down, breaks his ankle, gets taken to the hospital. Wait a minute, falls down and breaks his ankle? How is that humanly possible? Breaks his hip, maybe, or femur, or cracks his skull open, but c’mon, his ankle? Suddenly rounds turns from seven doctors and two medical students slouching against the walls, preoccupied with their own thoughts, to a melee of chaotic activity, as each one simultaneously perks up and starts acting out his or her own rendition of just how the tragedy might have occurred.
