Why my orthopedic surgeon is cool. Also, my pre-busticated knee is on the fritz again

Me: It hurts when I stand up or sit down, the front of the kneecap

Doc: I see.

Me: Also, there’s this squishy bit in here that moves around. What is it?

Doc: (moving squishy bit around in my knee) That? It’s a bit of rice noodle.

Me: Wha?

Doc: Ha ha! Just joking. It’s gristle.
