Actually, this is a photo of Hiram C. Flapdoodle, an inventor from the early 1900's. He was known for his many failures, such as inventing screen doors for submarines, glow in the dark wallpaper for people afraid of turning out the bedroom light at night and the infamous wood-burning telephone. However, Hiram's one successful invention was in the medical field. His Model T had a Moto-Meter on the radiator and as this historic photo shows, Hiram has been captured on film at the exact moment when he invented the rectal thermometer. The excitement of the moment registers on his face.
Not all inventors can be on par with Thomas A. Edison. It took a lot of little guys like Hiram Flapdoodle working in their garages at night to make the world a better place for us all. So, the next time your doctor tells you to bend over and cough, think of Hiram and this photo. No if's, and's or BUTT's.

That's why it took Hiram 10 minutes longer to invent his thermometer than it would have, had the car been in motion.

OK Marshall. My wife wants to know why I'm laughing so hard.

I wonder if the radiator was hot when the picture was taken?

Norman, if it was, he probably also simultaneously discovered the first prostate heat therapy...

Well,I have heard that the paperwork that comes with rectal thermometers says they are personaly tested.So was he testing the prototype?

I just heard the flush!

Ok,it's back!:>)

You know,it is obvious people back then musta been lighter from working in the fields and such.If I sat on the hood of either of my T's,I would wind up with my feet in the air and my backend on the cylinder head with a ruined hood between me and it.

Actually this is the great Italian male soprano, Giuseppe Quatrofromagio demonstrating how he reached high C. In Italy he normally used a FIAT, when this photo was taken, he was in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, during his one & only American Tour.
