Here's the sentence:
Injuries of the external male genitalia include all types of soft-tissue wounds. Although these injuries are uniformly painful and generally a source of great concern to the patient, they are rarely considered life threatening and should not be given priority over other, more sever wounds. (emphasis mine)

Actually, it was the use of the word "generally" that made us crack up. (The implication being that there were patients for whom this type of injury was not a cause for concern.")


Unconscious patients?

Patients aware that their arm was ripped off and they were bleeding to death?
