Paging Dr. Happy Hour....












(Editor's note: I know. Right now you're like "wait-is that a photograph of a doctor's outfit or did she actually draw that?" It's a gift. I really should forget this whole blogging thing and just concentrate on my art career.)

Anyhoo.

More fun with bizarre emails: A few days ago I got this:



Dr. Geoffrey Rutledge MD, PhD

Hi HappyHourSue,

I was searching online for the best health bloggers when I discovered your blog athappymealsandhappyhour.blogspot.com. I want to tell you I think your writing is great. My name is Dr. Geoff Rutledge, and I've taught and practiced Internal and Emergency Medicine for over 25 years at Harvard and Stanford medical schools. I'm also the Chief Medical Information Officer at Wellsphere (www.wellsphere.com), where we are building a network of the web’s leading health bloggers -- and I think you would be a great addition.

___________________________________________________________________


Dear Dr. Ruttledge,
     I would be honored to be a part of the world's leading health bloggers. Obviously, my credentials speak for themselves. As you know from my writings, I feel that health is a very good thing and sickness...not so much.
     I accept your invitation. 


     p.s. If no one else has called dibs, I'd like to be referred to as "McFoxy". 
      p.p.s. Can I get one of those prescription pads?

Jess said...

I love reading ALL your funnies!!

The Mom said...

I got an email from him too, calling me a leader in the mental health industry!!!!! OMG, we can be team fake doctors!

Terri said...

My family annoys me. Do you think I need some valium or something stronger?

Tenakim said...

Dr McFoxy- I am really needing a refill on my prescription and would love if you could give me one for some muscle relaxers, too!

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

OMGosh I am ROTFLMBO.....If you are McFoxy then I would like to be referred to as McFatty. We would make a great combo. Plus everyone needs a chunky side kick!!! =) That post just made my day!!!!

Swirl Girl said...

I only got emails from the John the Erectile Dysfunction guy. You're lucky!

kmoye said...

Seriously, that's hilarious!! I mean my eyes teared up and everything. Thats medical terms which i sure you're aware of. ; )

Threeboys1mommy said...

...really? And the words Happy Meal in the title didn't deter him at all...hmmm

cw2smom said...

Would you mind approving me for a lap band? ASAP. Via my HMO..I mean...because obviously you have connections and collegues! I understand that the procedure is now available for those people who ONLY need to lose 50 pounds. I am lazy. Thank you! LMAO! Lisa

Jen said...

Let the drugs start flowing.

KD @ A Bit Squirrelly said...

McFoxy-tini would be more appropriate, you know because you wil be holding your martini and diagnosing at the same time, kinda like Dr House popping pills and working, but you will be hot. Totally.

McMommy said...

Look, if he doesn't crown you Dr. McFoxy, I will.

I have that kind of power in the "Mc" field, you know.

Searching For Reinforcements said...

I'm not a doctor, but I play one on my blog...

So funny! Congrats on earning your MD without all the all-nighters and blood!

Mrs. S said...

Thats awesome and I so LOVE McFoxy.

Miss Yvonne said...

Dear Dr. McFoxy,

Can you tell my HMO and also my husband that I really do need breast reduction surgery? Because neither of them believe that it's necessary and one of them says the twins are happy just the way they are and why am I messing with a good thing?

michelle said...

Dr. McFoxy,
As your followers, er, um, I mean original patients who will follow you to your new practice or the ends of the earth (whichever it may be) we get dibs on call in scripts without the hassle of an appointment and your personal pager and all that stuff, right? I mean, seriously, you won't forget all your peeps here, will ya?

jill jill bo bill said...

I am off to check my emails. He certainly missed me somehow. I talk about my tilted bladder all the time. I.AM.SO.JEALOUS.

Jenni Jiggety said...

I would like to read your blogging thoughts on all of the latest health issues! For example, what does BG think of all of the peanut butter recalls???

Dawn said...

Too funny! And, since no one has commented on your artwork, I will! I'm impressed! I had to a do a double take. LOL!

Lee the MWOB Queen said...

Yes your artwork rules. Just like your funny stuff. And yes, Dr. McFoxy, I am currently suffering from a bad back caused by hoisting my friggin' brick of an 18-month-old. What can your prescribe for me?

(I think the doc pic of you is so great you should start a health Q & A each week or something....could be more funny!! Yeah, like you need ME to suggest funny stuff to ya... :-) )

Jennifer said...

Congrats on your new position McFoxy!!

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

At least you weren't contacted by the sex toys purveyor who wrote asking me to hawk his stuff on my innocent little blog...

Jen said...

Got an email from this guy too-so strange! But now I'm a little hurt. It appears I'm not in some elite group of health experts. Way to go bursting my bubble, McFoxy!

Patrice said...

Yes! I love it! I need to write a post out of all my weird emails I've gotten lately.. there are some crazy people out there!
Oh and I LOVE the name McFoxy... good choice!

Frau said...

Congrats! McFoxy love it! Can you approve my lipo too?

Piece o' Coconut Cake said...

Isn't that your bathing suit under your lab coat?

Rachel said...

Haasiegirl said...

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

Ha ha ha ha ha! I've got to start reconsidering what I write about. I'm sure if I spin it just right I may be invited to write for Playboy. ;-)

Former Fat Chick said...

McDrunky, um, we can hang out any time, but if I see you at the ER I am running the other way!

carla said...

All good docs wear their bathing suit under the lab coat, right? Especially ones earning the title "McFoxy".

I'm having my records transferred asap and my scripts go to CVS.

Love,

Jen @ Mommay's Mayhem said...

lol...I got this too! And the follow up emails because they must really want all my health knowledge. I'll be McLazy.

Shelley said...

Dear Dr. McFoxy,
Sometimes I steal from my husband's Xanax prescription, but I'd really love to have my own supply. Help a loyal reader/follower/stalker out, ok?
Thanks!

Cathy said...

Wow, I'm impressed! Now, if you could just send a few Prozac my way, I would be eternally grateful.

Brittany said...

This has got to be one of my all time favorites of yours, so fucking funny, I had to stop reading to concentrate on not peeing my pants!

I am Boymom said...

No way! That is awesome! Soon you'll be writing in the New England Journal of Medicine!

Wendy@RuensOnTheRun said...

Laughing...Happy meals & happy hours are medically good nowadays - that's awesome for me!

So Not Mom-a-licious said...

So chardonay swigging is good then? Sweet! Can you convince the medical staff that Red Bull and Vodka CAN exceed a limit of 3 per day?

morewineplease said...

i LOVE IT! Dr. McFoxy! Bring on the meds!

Tasha said...

Totally bitchin. I just pray to god that, if I get hurt, I dont get sent to your hospital. :P
