American Gothic-like

That doc looks a lot like Dr. Byron McKeeby (a dentist) that Grant Wood used a few years later for his "American Gothic" painting.

Thick

Wow, those gloves are thick, a wonder they could feel anything. But that does look like a loop of bowel, maybe even a gall bladder. All identifiable instruments too.

No, Dr. Quackenbush - - -

keep your eye on the patient!!!!!

Oops!

What do you mean this isn't Mr. Smyth?!

Darling

Have they left, can we take off the masks?
