Subject: The saddest "Happiest Place on Earth"

Written By: sanrioscenario on 02/28/08 at 10:54 pm

Saw this on, the worst part is that the numbers are true!

"As the Iraq War wears on, the Walter Reed National Army Medical Center continues to receive complaints about its dilapidated facilities, outmoded equipment, and endless red tape—all resulting in poor morale for patients and hospital staff alike. That's why the U.S. Army paid $800,000 for training seminars from the Disney Institute. Walter Reed hopes to transform its reputation as a cold, heartless bureaucracy, and who better than Disney to tell them how to make people happy in overcrowded facilities with long, long, unbelievably long lines?

So good news, wounded soldiers! Here's what you can expect as Walter Reed tranforms its tarnished image into The Happiest Hospital on Earth™.

    * Doctors will be required to whistle while they work.

    * Orderlies and cleaning staff will be replaced by squirrels, raccoons, and other woodland creatures who can sweep with their tails.

    * Country Bear Jamboree to accompany patients to the O.R.

    * Soldiers diagnosed with cancer and diabetes can now look forward to treatment at the "Mad Chemo Party" and "Roger Rabbit's Car-Toon Dialysis." "

The rest is here: Enjoy!
