The Gas Passer Said WHAT?!?!

Last case of the day, a nurse was putting cricoid pressure on my patient's throat to aid in intubation. The anesthesia doc got her tubed and then was trying to pull the stylet out of the tube. He then said the following line to the roomful of women.

"I can't pull out when you're holding the long, thin thing!"

And then he wonders why we all start cracking up.
