A nurse was on duty in A&E, when a female punk rocker entered.
This young woman had green hair styled into a mohican, a variety of tattoos and strange clothing.
It was determined that the patient had an acute appendicitis, and so she was scheduled for immediate surgery.
When she was completely undressed, gowned, and lying on the operating table, the staff found that her pubic hair had been dyed green and above it was a tattoo reading:
"Keep off the grass."
After the pre-op and the surgery, the surgeon added a small note to the dressing which said:
"Sorry, I had to mow the lawn."
