'Cello Scrotum': British Medical Journal Giggles About Being Hoaxed

The British Medical Journal, hoaxed thirty years ago by a female physician (and now member of the House of Lords) who thought 'guitarist's nipple' was funny, has announced that its prior report describing 'cello scrotum' is bunk.  Apparently the hoaxer saw 'cello scrotum' referred to as an actual malady and realized it wasn't obvious to non-cello players that it was a load of hooey.

Thank goodness.  Now, I can take up the bass.
