v.— «One hears the stories: about being “pimped” by a resident following one’s presentation of a case (being questioned unmercifully until one’s knowledge is exhausted about a particular syndrome, thus forcing an “I don’t know” response, followed by a “Well, why don’t you know?”).» —by Robert S. Broadhead Private Lives and Professional Identity of Medical Students Dec. 1, 1983. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
