Yet none of us are qualified to prescribe good drugs

Our daughter, Skatje, passed her final defense, and now you all have to address her as Dr Myers. Her parents, Dr Myers and Dr Myers, are very proud.

It’s going to be awkward at Thanksgiving when someone asks us to pass the cranberries.

    I didn’t know you were one of the Doctors, though – second from left on bottom row. I saw you more as an agent of the Shadows – the scary aliens with the spider-shaped spaceships in Babylon 5.

    Congratulations! All three of you are doctors, very impressive.

    And yet, what we all need are some ‘good drugs’ to survive this insane society.
    Hospital P.A. announcement: Calling Doctor Howard, Doctor Fine, Doctor Howard you are needed in the pharmaceutical dispensary at once! ROFLMHO.

    Congratulations to Dr. Meyrs. Meyers. Meijers. Mayers. Myers. Yeah, that’s it,
    Myers. Congratulations, Dr. Myers. No, not you. Not you, either. Yeah, you. No, not you, you.

    Q: How many doctors does it take to pass the cranberry sauce?
    A: Depends on low long the table is.

    I thought, hang on, I don’t remember a bearded Dr Who before Ecclestone, and then I thought….

    But great congratulations to the new Doctor, well done you.

    Congratulations to Skatje, and also to both her parents – you clearly did an excellent job. Be proud of her AND of yourselves!

    The picture had me confused then I realized Who all the Drs. were.

    PS, concrats to all the Docs.

    I remember reading, many years ago (and again quite recently) that to paleontologists who study mammals (especially the ones from the Mesozoic (before even your time, Dr. Myers), view mammalian sex as the way that fossil teeth produce new, and different, fossil teeth. So if two doctors marry and produce a doctor, are humans merely the way that doctors produce new, and different doctors?

    When you pass the cranberries, say Herr Doctor, Frau Doctor or … doctorlein?

    The 1943 film This is the Army with Ronald Reagan showed a drag show.
    It looks like we have to boycott the army. And everything related to Ronald Reagan.

  10. Louis says

    Considering everyone has done all the jokes I wanted to, I will not congratulate all the Drs Myers, I will not comically misspell Dr Myers’ name (despite doing so for decades now), I will merely say: Who?

    Buggered if I know what’s going on.


    P.S. Congratulations Dr Skatje Myers, and the proud Drs Myerses. Or is it Myersodes? Myerxisoun? Myerzes?

  11. opposablethumbs says

    Congratulations to all the Drs. Myers, especially the newest one!

  12. Doc Bill says

    After 43 years it still doesn’t get old when I’m introduced to someone as “Doctor” and I introduce my wife as “Doctor.” It’s the bugging eyes, twitch of the neck, visible “Malfunction! Recalculating! Recalculating!”

  13. geezer septuagenarian says

    Is this a picture pun. Pass the cranberries doctor. Doctor Who?

  14. magistramarla says

    Congratulations to the newest Dr. Myers!
    We have several PHDs in our family, too. Interestingly, our oldest daughter was the first to earn hers, then she married someone with a PHD. Her Daddy was the third one, and when he graduated, she gave him a Dr. Who mug which referenced the episode you are thinking of when several Dr. Whos met and said “Doctor, Doctor, Doctor, Doctor”.
    Someone asked about the extra Dr. Who. He was “the war Doctor”, from a special episode concerning the war on Galifrey.
    It featured several of the Doctors. LOL, I’m not a Dr., but I’ve cosplayed as the 13th Doctor at a Comic Con!
    Another daughter married a child psychologist, giving us yet another Dr. in the family.

    I once worked in a small university research group where the Head had an MD, a PH.D (History) and was a full professor. Apparently, in German, one would address him as “Herr Doctor, Doctor, Professor”.
