ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
These are great. There should really be a wiki somewhere.
Nurses do it with aseptic technique.
Nurses do it with fluid restriction.
Nurses are prepared to resuscitate.
Nurses do it as the doctor ordered.
Nurses do it to patients. (yes, yes, I know…)
why the jpeg? Hatin’ against the blind perhaps?
A little specialized, but still my favorite:
Spectroscopists do it with frequency and intensity.
my fave (unlisted) – squatter girls do it with crowbars.
Bloodninja does it with a robe and wizard hat.
Swimmers do it in the lanes is missing! (one of my aquatic club teammates had that shirt back in the late 1970s.)
I see some serious holes in this list!
Vampires? Werewolves? Pirates? Ninjas? Senators?
Anyone wanna take a crack at these?
Senators do it with toilet paper on their shoes.
Glad I wasn’t the only one bemoaning the lack of actuarial versions.
Actuaries probably do it
Actuaries do it continuously and discretely
Actuaries do it with varying rates of interest
i played trombone up thru HS and was very happy to see my staple “trombone players do it in 7 positions” on the list.
pirates do it for the booty?
there’s one i see around these parts (the sf bay area) as a bumper sticker (and once as a personal ad tagline) that totally creeps me out – “therapists do it without moving there lips.” i have to admit, i have no idea what it means, but it makes my skin crawl nonetheless. it’s not on the list.
while i certainly don’t condone the loathable world of “instant funny,” it is clear that vampires do it ’til the sun comes up.
I’ve actually seen this one, on a car outside a church:
Priests do it with amazing grace.
Okay, it was a Unitarian Church, but it still counts.
Luddites do it with their hands.
they forgot: Mathematicians do it with logs
although i prefer: Twin Peaks fans do it with logs.
Two from my old friend Eric:
Actuaries do it with models
Actuaries do it on tables.
Guess what he did for a living.
BoingBoingers do it with a jackhammer.
Yeah, he totally missed actuaries! My two favorites:
Actuaries do it with frequency and severity.
Actuaries do it until death or disability, whichever comes first.
Werewolves do it with man or beast? By the light of the full moon?
Ninjas do it silently.
Penguins do it down south!
I do it best
Ninjas do it with articulated socks.
Pediatricians do it with children? Oh my god, someone call the police!
Rocketeers do it on impulse.
Yeah! Love this one:
Geeks do it in front of Windows.
From my old job:
Weathermen do it with lightning strokes.
Weather forecasters do it with crystal balls.
My very favorite, not on this list: Evolutionary biologists do it with increasing complexity.
Technical writers do it manually. ;)
Steampunk afficianados do it with beautifully over-complicated machinery.
Cory does it so he can blog about it.
The rest do it so Xeni can blog about it.
I do it, but nobody else is ever there.. so nobody believes me.
#23 – Blind people do it in the dark.
Nuns do it with the holy spirit.
Bassists do it with their fingers all night long…
Air traffic, getting things down safely…
BoingBoingers do it and then accidentally do it again right away.
Bloggers do it with comments.
my personal favorite, which i saw on a tshirt once- mall walkers do it slowly.
I’m surprised this hasn’t been said yet, but
Rogues do it from behind.
Bulimics do it after every meal.
Runners – Just Do It.
