Comic 883 - Pain Rating

I went to the doc's feeling blue
In the hope that we'd talk some things through.
He looked into my psyche
And said "Me no likey" -
He had to have counselling too.

Original comic here.

This isn't meant to be a racist stereotype of a doctor with poor English. It's more that the shock of exposure to the patient's pitch-black emotional landscape has caused the doctor's consciousness to seek refuge in infantilisation. Sorry to spoil the joke for any Peter Sellers fans out there.
