The twelve days of (alternative) Christmas

December 25, 2008

Holiday best wishes to all Dr Aust’s readers (all four of them).


As a bit of light seasonal fare, I decided on a Christmas song. Others may like to invent their own versions.

On the twelfth day of Christmas,

My true love sent to me

Twelve healers “healing”

Eleven chiros suing

Ten psychic surgeons

Nine worthless journals

Eight random needles

Seven magic crystals

Six placebo pills

Five sessions of homoeopathy (Or:  “Five alternative realities” )

Four nutritionistas

Three imagined allergies

Two crank diets

And a fictitious Ph.D. !
