Whenever You Feel That Stomach Pain, SMILE! SMILE!

So, we're still on Golden Age Green Lantern #14, where Alan visits the worst doctor ever.

I don't know what he's doing, but whenever people block you with their back, they aren't up to anything good. 

That's the go-to in the medical profession.  If they can't come up with a diagnosis, they go with hypochondria.  Because, of course, it's not possible that Dr. Mustache there is simply stumped.  No, the problem is clearly that Alan's pains are psycho-somatic.  

What's the cure?  To smile!

I have to admit, Alan Scott is clearly one of those people who shouldn't smile.  And I'm not being mean, because I'm one of those people that shouldn't smile.  It just doesn't look good, so I go with the Raymond Burr grin:

The doctor agrees with me, although I think he's something of an alarmist:

Did I mention he's the worst doctor ever?

Moving on to a Moment of Comic Book Greatness! (tm!)

And, by the looks of things, he's telling the horse a filthy, filthy joke!

And we'll end today with another installment of That Doesn't Work That Way! (tm!)

According to the Martin-Schultz scale of eye color, "black" is not an eye color at all.

Unless we're making an inappropriate joke about punching your children in the eyes.... which I am not doing.

So let it be known... Eye Color Doesn't Work That Way! (tm!)

See you Monday!

that doctor's head looks like it is trying to hypnotize good old Alan Scott.

possibly for some reason having to do with medical insurance coverage...
