Casting Couch

It was so difficult to find that “nice doctor” our mother always wanted us to meet. What we should have done is held a casting call.

Like all single people in Los Angeles, Discovery Channel is searching for a “youthful and dynamic physician” to help host a new science series.

The would-be host’s requirements read like a J-Date profile:

* A MD or PA with knowledge of the latest medical research who is comfortable with technology and can speak about a range of disciplines.

* Capable of devising unique and entertaining physical demonstrations that help illustrate the inner workings of the human body.

* Has a sense of humor, is a team player, and is comfortable in front
of a video camera.

* Can cook.

* Smokers and those with “mommy issues” need not apply.
