Things not to say to a trauma surgeon…

At a Surgery Club talk the lecturer showed a picture of a man with a cleaver stabbed though his chest, left of the sternum. When he asked which organs were potentially in the path of the knife, an undergrad piped up:

"Well, it couldn't have hit the heart, because the heart is on the right side".
