Out of the box thinkers - creative, artistic, most prone to off-color humor
As opposed to GYN's, who tend to be all about the box...... :smuggrin:

I think the most fun (as a group) are colorectal surgeons. I have met a few who don't measure up, but the vast majority have an exceptional sense of humor.

As for off-color humor and just plain profanity laced tirades, I would have to go with Orthopods. I even remember a study in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) which had observers in an OR count the number of profanities from different types of surgeons, and I think Orthopods won hands down:

F Fausto Palazzo and Orlando J Warner
Surgeons swear when operating: fact or myth?
BMJ, Dec 1999; 319: 1611

Of course, this same issue had people having sex in an MRI machine, so I don't know about the review process. If you don't believe it:

Willibrord Weijmar Schultz, Pek van Andel, Ida Sabelis, and Eduard Mooyaart
Magnetic resonance imaging of male and female genitals during coitus and female sexual arousal
BMJ, Dec 1999; 319: 1596 - 1600

This particular issue was a good read.

Yeah, medical science just wouldn't be able to consider itself thorough without a series of 1mm slices of two volunteers humping inside an MRI machine. :laugh:
