Bones of the wrist

At the request of George Hoblip,  here’s another little medical gem dragged up from somewhere normally best left undisturbed. As med students we had lots and lots of mnemonics and acronyms to help us remember things. I especially liked the one for remembering the cranial nerves. It was extremely rude and had a V in it (for vagus). Beware putting a V in anything near a medical student because it always defaults to the lowest common denominator–and that word isn’t vulgar—well it is when taken out of context ( and also has a v and a g in it).


Anyway, for the bones of the wrist, we had:

Scaphoid, Lunate, Triquetrum, Pisiform, Trapezium,Trapezoid, Capitate, Hamate

Scared Lovers Try Positions That They Can’t Handle.

See, could have been a lot worse. There is somethign else about sore wrists but we’ll discuss that onanother (Geddit) occasion.

Sometimes I’m so sharp I think I’m going to cut myself.

  1. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn’t find a contact email for you.

    I recently put out an ebook of my writing, called ‘The New Death and others’. It’s a collection of short pieces, mostly dark fantasy.

    I was wondering if you’d be interested in doing a review on your blog.

    If so, please email me: Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I’ll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from the ebook’s page on Smashwords:

    I’m also happy to do interviews, guest posts, or giveaways. Just let me know what you’d prefer.
