EneMan Humor Medicine

Drug rep toys reviewed, but one big one’s missing!

Here’s a blog that Shelley discovered and that I’ve been meaning to mention for a week now: Drug Rep Toys.

Yep, it’s a blog whose purpose is to review and rate the various bits of swag that drug reps hand out to us doctors in the hopes that (I guess) we’ll prescribe or use their products. It’s mostly pens and lights, though. He’s missing some of the–shall we say?–over the top toys. For example, remember this post from long ago?

Yes! It’s the very first time our intrepid blog mascot appeared, way back in December 2004, when I posted a picture of the stuffed EneMan doll and the multiple EneMan Christmas ornaments. One has to wonder what Nathan would think of the various EneMan chotchkies that exist, and perhaps I should e-mail him a few pictures.

However, I might have to be careful. The latest EneMan photo is, I’m afraid, rather disturbing. No, it’s very disturbing. In fact, I’d have to say that it probably isn’t work-safe, which is why I’m posting it on the weekend. Really. You’ve been warned.

Don’t click on the link to see what’s below the fold if you’re easily offended or have a weak constitution.


I’m not joking.

I’m warning you: Don’t click on the link (or, if you accessed this article directly from a newsfeed or other source, don’t scroll down)!

Why are you still scrolling?


I warned you the image is highly disturbing!

I won’t be held responsible for any emotional trauma you may have suffered from viewing EneMan in the buff.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
