Security! Please Escort God Off the Premisis

I heard a lot of yelling down the hall and so I walked over to the nursing station and looked over to the other side of the ER and I see a patient backing up, yelling at whoever is threatening him:

Patient: "Don't you know that I'm God?!?!?" I see our recently-returned-from-Iraq no-nonsense tough-guy PA marching straight at him with shoulders set and an angry look on his face:

PA toughguy: "Yeah, well you are about to meet Satan!"

Later while in the break room I was talking to him about it, and he said, "I was really hoping he would lay a hand on me so I could beat the hell out of him."

My response: "He's God. You can't beat the hell out of him, but maybe you could have beat the heaven out of him..."

and such is life in the ER.
