Pronounced [KUH-DOO-SEE-STASH], the Caducestache was created as a symbol of the male nurse or MURSE! We are not talking about male purses here!
The original caduceus is said to be a depiction of the staff that Hermes carried, according to Greek mythology. In Roman texts, you will often see it held by Mercury, the messenger to the gods. It actually is mistaken for a medical symbol in some cultures due to it being confused with the Rod of Asclepius which the WHO uses as its basis.
The caduceus really has no business being used as a symbol for anything medical...UNTIL NOW! Meet the CADUCESTACHE!
