How To Keep A Straight Face

You know, one of the biggest challenges of my day is that many of my patients pluralize the word “test” by saying “testis.”

Probably because the S-T-S construction can be difficult to pronounce for some.

But you still can’t laugh.

No matter what the context.

Because that’s not kind or fair.

But it’s SO HARD sometimes!!!

  1. I know…

    I HATE LISPS!!! And I was trying to pronounce that to myself… and failed. Miserably.

  2. Hmm, I wonder if that’s a local thing? I’ve never heard anyone pronounce tests that way.

  3. I tried it just now. It made my compleatly illogical-and-inconvenient stomachache, right before martial arts training worse with the laughter. thank you so verry much. (funny how pseudo-sarcasm doesn’t show on paper)

  4. Hehe I grew up around that, so I learned how to keep a straight face.
    My favorite is beans.
