Life imitates art

So last week I tapped out a joke about there not being any « R.C. wuz here » micrograffiti, because at the time, the very oblique reference to the Kids in the Hall made me laugh (much to my immediate detriment).

Lo and behold, this week comes news that life imitates art, in that surgeon Dr. Simon Bramhall, formally of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham (England, not the place that almost elected a pedophile to the Federal Senate) actually used an argon laser to etch his initials on the transplant organs of the liver recipients.

The offenses occurred four years ago, but the case is coming to a resolution, with sentencing next year.
