Funny Misprints

Mark Twain warned: "Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint." The same can be said for these English-challenged notes doctors wrote on patient charts:

"The patient is married but sexually active."

"When standing with eyes closed, he missed his right finger to his nose and has to search for it on the left side."

"She does indeed have a fear of frying and mental problems that she attributes to deep-fat fryers."

"The patient is a 53-year-old police officer who was found unconscious by his bicycle."

"Her father died from a heart attack at age 12."
