CG and I were watching House M.D. and the conversation shifted towards a common friend who had just returned from Moscow after completing his M.D.
Me: Dude JJ just finished his M.D.
CG: Yeah, I heard.
Me: Because he did his undergraduate in Moscow, he got awarded a M.D degree. In India its called M.B.B.S.
CG: Yeah, so?
Me: So, his visiting card / office door would read Dr. JJ, M.D. That’ll be so cool! Just like House, M.D!
Me: Guess what does M.B.B.S stand for?
CG: Master of… wait… Bachelor of…. Ummm… Bachelor of Medicine?
Me: That’s not it! Guess again?
CG: Master of something and Bachelor of Medicine?
Me: It’s an undergraduate course. Masters wont appear in the title.
CG: What does the M.B in M.B.B.S. stand for?
Me: Master of Bastards!
(I start rolling on the floor, laughing)
CG: Damn! Why is this so hard?
Me: Fine! It’s Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery.
CG: Then it should be B.M.B.S!
Me: Yeah, that sounds lame. So they reversed the first two letters. Now, M.B.B.S. sounds way cooler!
CG: Did I just…….. get trolled?! Dafaq!
