By now you realize that I should have been a media mogul, instead of a world-famous on-the-air personality.
Because IF I owned a media organization, I would have some serious talks with the people who think this is a funny story.
And then I’d call the people who uploaded a video to spank them.
Between “fake news,” and “alternative facts,” there are just some things that should remain – private – and not put out as news of ANY kind.
But we live in a time of a nation of narcissists. It’s all about, “Me!”
Everybody wants to be a star, however short-lived or how potentially dangerous something may be.
Such is the case for the couple who put a video out for the world to see, featuring a woman who mistakenly had ALCOHOL-BASED hand sanitizer in her, uh…private parts, instead of a lubricating jelly during a GYN exam.
It’s likely you saw this. It’s reached Venus (pun intended) and bounced off into the next galaxy by now. Click on the video here. https://goo.gl/PGzZxZ
Those space aliens must think those Kentucky folks are plum bonkers.
When she said, “He grabbed the wrong bottle,” and then laughed uncontrollably, I thought to myself, “You could have been permanently damaged by the doctor, and all you can do is laugh hysterically?”
And her husband was laughing and coming up with one-liners with her during their insistence on sharing an awkward moment with the world, and the universe.
Before I’m accused of being un-funny – or have a lack of a sense of humor – there is a part of me that snickered. The eighth-grade boy in me.
And remember, much of my lengthy radio career, I’ve made fun of almost everything.
However; some things just ain’t funny.
And then, when I quickly realized the dangers of ALCOHOL on skin surfaces, I grimaced thinking about a mistake like that happening; especially in a Gynecologist’s office.
Females of the world must know what I’m talking about.
While the woman’s alleged misfortune may seem funny after the fact, it seems to me she and her husband wouldn’t be cracking up IF there had been lasting harm done to the fetus; or perhaps her own innards.
Which brings me to my point. And there always is a point.
Are they going to sue? It appears not, as the five-minute laugh-fest in the video shows, the couple seem to have no problem with what COULD have happened.
I think we’re all glad it didn’t become a serious medical issue.
I ain’t a doctor; nor have I ever played one on TV, a movie, on the radio or even a stupid Facebook video that went viral.
But I do have a wife.
Andrea was not amused.
As a woman who suffered from female problems most of her adult life, she didn’t find it humorous at all when she saw that video.
I am truly interested to see if ANY of my readers think I’m off-base with this assessment of the ALCOHOL-LADEN sanitizer finding its way INTO the female reproduction area.
The way I see it, from what I’ve learned with my years of being a person who respects the female form, you don’t want ALCOHOL going there. Capeesh?
Do I have to spell it out?
Alcohol can damage skin. It ain’t just me ranting and raving. Read why here from International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. https://goo.gl/Q7zFpo
Because of all this hoopla over the couple laughing about what could have been a nightmare (and frankly had to be very uncomfortable regardless) it leads me to say that if the Doc involved had been using an ALCOHOL-FREE hand sanitizer, perhaps this video may have never been made.
Or, the potential consequences might not have been as severe.
Again, I am not a doctor, but as a male, I don’t think I want alcohol on my privates anytime soon either, thank you.
