Interlude: Worst. Pun. EVAR!!!

So, I just got my copy of the latest New England Journal of Medicine (Volume 355, Issue 3: July 20, 2006 , for those who care). I'm browsing through some of the article titles, when I hit this.

I want you to read this carefully.

After you have read it carefully, tell me this isn't the WORST pun EVAR!!11

Okay.

Here we go:

"Taking Heart -- Cardiac Transplantation Past, Present, and Future"

Taking.

Heart.

Literally.

I don't know whether to send Sharon A. Hunt, M.D. a congratulatory letter for cleverness above and beyond the call of duty or a mighty blast of vitriolic "How dare you" venom in email form, perhaps with an "Ewwwww!" thrown in for good measure.

Those of you in Academia are, I'm sure, both shaking your heads in despair and taking notes for potential future articles of your own.

That's right. You know who you are.
