Need a nurse saying...

  1. OK, so this is a question that I would normally ask at my cake decorating message board, but they were no help, so I thought I'd try it here.

    I have to do a cake for a nurse that is retiring. I need a catchy phrase or theme for it. No one at my cake site has ever done a retirement cake for a nurse (prolly cause they die before they retire) so most of their ideas were fishing/golfing/RV related.

    Then I thought, who knows more cheesy nurse sayings than nurses? Got any ideas?

    RN=Retiring Now!...(boo)
    The Butt stops here...(boo..hiss)

    Heather, "missy"...doncha know, there are no retirement phrases of nurses cause we never retire due to poor benefits....we just die on our feet! how about arnold schwartzeneger's, "Ill be back!...cause retirement pay sucks."......good luck with your cake.

    RN= Retiring Now! That is perfect. I'm not good at thinking things up like that so I can't really help you. Good luck!

    heather, what type of nursing did she do? was one of her duties cleaning poop? you could make the cake like a butt sticking up with poop(chocolate chips or something) and write "never again" on it.

    Wow I wish I could think of something great to say, but can't.. I would have fun doing pictures of stethoscopes, bandades, and bed pans and write, "You will be missed greatly by all, epecially your patients"!

    too bad they dont make a cake pan in the shape of bed pan. Then you could bake the cake in that. ewww I wouldn't eat any.
