I'm Back Part 2: Resuscitating Ogie

How do you bring someone back to life after he commits bloggicide??? If not handled properly, readers might think that it was all some publicity stunt.

Here at Monkey Republic, all healers go through accreditations for emergency life saving courses. As the subjects at our small beautiful island are mostly monkeys (and some cows + one donkey), the details of this course is really not of much importance to you. Three things however stays the same: A - Airway, B - Breathing, C - circulation.

Sama sama, the resuscitation of a blogger also follows this universal protocol.

A - Airway
" I need a Yanker and prepare ETT size 7 half!!"

Before resurrecting, Dr Og had to see his lawyer friend to get (airway) clearance......
Og: So how? My blo.... I mean website, ok or not?
Law Dude: Not bad lah, some parts quite corny. Can't see why people say its hilarious.....
Og: No I mean, can revive boh?
Law Dude: Orh..... Nothing written here that reflects the truth? The whole truth?? And nothing but the truth???
Og: No!!! Its fake, all fake, nothing but fake. Like ER and Scrubs......
Law Dude: I guess if you don't cross the line.... should be fine.....
Og: Wah lau, you din tell me anything I don't already know!
Law Dude: But you still gotta pay me.
Og: Any discount brother? Given our long standing friendship.
Law Dude: You're making doctors look cheapo!
Og: Not even if I intro pretty doctor friends to you?Law Dude: Pretty doctor? That's oxymoronic.
Og: Oxy simi?Anyway got any law people blo..... write on the web or not?
Law Dude: NO. We only write if we get paid for it.

B - Breathing
"Connect the air viva to the ETT, get a ventilator!"
If the airway is clear. Can Dr Og start to ventilate again? Everyone needs to ventilate. Finding the right avenue is important or wait your buttocks kennah bua gu you. The safest way is of course to shout into your toilet bowl (please flush first ok).

But since we treat mainly monkeys here in State General, as long as I don't spill their peanuts or wash their dirty fur in public, surely I can breath again??!

C - Circulation "No heartbeat, start CPR!"

Do we have the passion in our heart to write again? Dr Og is downright addicted to blogging writing!!! First the hand itched terribly. Then Dr Og was tremoring. Buay sai liao!!!!! Gimme that computer!

Somewhere along the line, medicine adopted addiction and made it our baby.
Law Dude: Hmmmm, mebbe if you can certify yourself an internet addict, you can get away with diminished responsibility.......
Og: I'm not paying you for that last advice!

"Er, we have a rhythym? One life saved?"
