  • Artery – the study of Paintings and Sculptures
  • Caesarean Section – Italian quarter acre building site
  • Cauterise – Make eye contact with female
  • Dilate – Live a long and useful life
  • Fibula – A small falsehood
  • Labour Pain – Work related injury
  • Nitrates – Cheaper than phoning during the day
  • Rectum – Nearly killed him
  • Terminal Illness – Feeling really sick at an airport
