Hot Shots!

Washout: I just got kicked out of the unit. My flight status has been withdrawn. I'm through, Dead Meat!
Dead Meat: What happened?
Washout: It's my eyes. I've got walleye-vision.
Dead Meat: Isn't there something that can be done?
Washout: Well, there's a delicate corneal inversion procedure... a multi-opti-pupil-optomy. But, in order to keep from damaging the eye sockets, they've got to go in through the rectum. Ain't no man going to take that route with me!
