But somehow this is only one of the most recent incidents of this kind of behavior. In 2010, a California gynecologist named Red Alinsod was sued for using an electrocautery device to carve the name "Ingrid" into patient Ingrid Paulicivic's uterus. Alinsod claims he did this so that he wouldn't confuse her uterus with the others, because as we all know, hospitals don't label vital organs or put them in containers, but simply toss them onto an ever-growing pile on the floor.
And the uterine graffiti trend goes even further back: In 2003, a Dr. James Guiler from Lexington, Kentucky, was sued by 10 of his patients for branding "UK" on their uteri. It wasn't some monarchist declaration of loyalty to the British Isles, but a tribute to his education at the University of Kentucky. We're assuming it was due to school spirit and not a horribly ill-conceived viral marketing campaign.
