Background: The hospital where I work has launched a project to brighten up the corridors and make them less institution-like. The above picture is a triptych which we have observed the lady artist working on for the last few weeks. Finally three men from the Estates Department in their dark green uniforms came with their drills and screws to put it up. As I was passing they had just finished and were standing against the opposite wall surveying their handiwork with very obvious puzzled looks on their faces.
Man 1: (scratching his head) Yeah but.... what IS it?
Man 2: I tell you what it is. It's me auntie's hernia.
