Re: [Histonet] What is Histology?


Once, when working in a hospital lab, a nurse accidentally called my lab to request a blood draw - I told her "You want service, this is parts."
From then on, I told people I worked in the Parts Department of the hospital.  

Another favorite when people ask "what is histology?" -
"Did you ever have your tonsils removed?   Did you ever wonder what happened to them after they took them out?"

To All,
    I just get asked if I do historical work. But, I've been waiting to hear that one.
