A hospital in Minnesota is considering bringing in belly dancers and Chippendales to use instead of knocking medicine and Anesthesia Technician to hold down the costs of many operations.
"We can offer this to the person but if he's married we may need his/her permission also", stated a hospital spokesman. "It would certainly help if they were awake enough to tell us anything during the operation.
However, in a poll we took of the people of Minnesota, most say they wouldn't use the dancers even though it might be a good idea for some people.
"You have to remember that the surgeons and their staff would also get distracted", stated several we called.
I personally think that it may be offered in the future but it should have been offered long ago.
Watching a belly dancer would be a lot better than biting a bullet.
"Here, bite this bullet while we take out your spleen or you want us to bring a gal up here from the saloon?"
"I choose the gal but she's got to be out of your sight behind you!"
