Stress Test

Stress Test: Cartoons on Medicine by Sidney Harris

A number of them are rather science-geeky, again, though they all related to medicine

Two hippos seeing the vultures descend and one says, "I didn't even know he was sick."

A hospital room, a huddle of doctors, and an objection that confidentiality is all very well, but they do need to be told about the case.

A microbe grumbling about working like crazy and being called a low-grade infection.

A man sitting up in his hospital bed, reading the newspaper, and the doctor tell him that what he felt like didn't matter, the definitions said he was dead.

And many more.
