* One of Tom Gauld's comic strip in ''New Scientist'' has someone calling for a doctor. A man steps forward, but when told someone is choking, explains he's a doctor of geology. But that's okay, because the person's choking on an igneous rock!

* The degree handed out by Law Schools is called a ''Juris Doctor'', and yet no one ever refers to lawyers as "Doctor". It;s actually only the first degree of law. Most people put "Esquire" after their name instead of JD or some other title.

* Having grown up the child of a university administrator, this anon would like to point out that it's fairly common for this to come into play among staff members. Doctorates in business, literature, engineering and history are formally addressed in pretty much the same way, especially with letters and public addresses, as a sign of respect.

* ''Series/{{Lucifer}}''. Dr Linda Martin is a licensed M.D. as a requirement to be a practicing psychiatrist but she doesn't actually practice medicine. Her last real medical experience was her medical education years ago. In spite of this, Lucifer and the others keep coming to her because she's the only doctor they know.

* In ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty,'' Beth is a horse doctor. In one episode, she and Jerry hit a deer, and when she expresses a wish that she had the equipment to try and save its life, he tries to comfort her by saying that, since she deals with horses, there was nothing that she could do anyway. Beth, naturally, takes that as an insult and spends the rest of the episode ''angrily'' determined to save the deer.



* Another old joke: An attractive woman ricks her ankle while aboard a cruise ship, and the announcement goes out: "Is there a doctor on board?". A Doctor of Philosophy rushes to her cabin, only to find that a Doctor of Divinity has beaten him to it.
