500+ ghits. Especially eggcornish when the carotids are in bad shape. Examples:
Roundhouse to the corroded artery on the neck is one I use often. my corner says I have to chill out before I kill someone.
Tomorrow a corroded artery (on the side of the neck) and one bypass are scheduled for sure…
I also heard somewhere that if you really give the corroded artery a really deep slashing that the blood will drain out of his head ...
But exactly what Dr. Schwamm says, I had corroded artery problems and I have all the symptoms that go with having a stroke.
It was near the corroded artery so consequently blood being sent to my head was higher then anywhere else in my body.
It cut my neck from ear to ear and i came within a papers thickness from my corroded artery witch would have killed me in seconds.
Never mind the corrosion – who misplaced the root vegetable?
The room started spinning and my stomach got upset when I was 45, found out my neck internal carroted artery was blocked had to have operation to have it …
He isnt so bad today,, still got the runs but not as bad,, and the dr told him this morning that the reason hes been getting dizzy spells and the tingling is because of the left carroted artery on the left side of his neck.
He strugled but he couldent move and the next moment, he felt blinding pain as Miss Scarlet bit his carroted artery.
The carroted artery sounds quite healthy; a garroted artery is generally associated with trouble.
Could you give any detail on how to block the garroted artery to the brain?.....I couldn’t find any online info on that.
One was a collarbone shot that ricocheted sticking right into the sailors’ garroted artery
Just prior to scheduled radiotherapy my garroted artery burst
$3.03 e-book, small part of a run-on sentence
he then threw his knife, it hit the guard in the side of the neck severing the garrotted artery he fell to the ground holding his throat, he lay their dying
Garroted – makes sense. The artery where blood is choked off.
Just a couple of these:
Pressing two fingers to the charioted artery, McGarrett confirmed that the man was very much still alive.
I know from charioted arteries. All roads and bridges to Montréal’s island centre-ville are choked continually with chars. The inevitable result:
the back of the jaw will cause a knock out, or the neck where the clotted artery is, if you pinch the clotted artery shut you’ll make the guy drop right then and there.
People don’t seem to have a very good opinion of the poor carotid. Here’s another version evoking corrosion.
There are multiple points on your body to take your pulse. However, the two easiest sites are located at the radial artery and the corrupted artery. The radial artery is located inside of your wrist. The corrupted artery is located on the side of your neck.
My mother had always said, if you were going to do anything, you were going to be the best. So at five years old, when I dissected a squirrel in my back yard to look at it’s corrupted artery, my mother decided I was going to be a surgeon, and pushed me until I got there.
Or beyond corruption:
also out there: carted, chartered, crotted arteries
These all make me giggle :D If I weren’t as voracious a reader, I would probably have no clear orthographic representation for “carotid” either :-P
Perhaps the artery is part of the structure that supports the head, like a column carved in the shape of a woman.
Discussion board “I have to give big kudos to the doctors and trainers as very few survive a caryatid artery being cut like that.”
Blog “Anyway, they were doing several free assessments, including an ultrasound on the caryatid artery to check for plaque.”
Or perhaps the artery is heart-shaped:
Answers site “Find a spot where you can easily feel your pulse, usually near your wrist on the bottom side of your arm, or near the cardioid artery on the neck.”
Photo caption “He saved my life by putting a stent in my right cartioid artery.”
This might have missed the target due to a malapropism, however:
Medical discussion “It was next to my carotid archery so they were being careful.”
Nice damage to the carotid, larrybob. I specially liked caryatid artery. Shapely.
Here’s another assault.
the priest would slash the karated artery of the sacrificed lamb or goat
