The Piranha Brothers.

I loved this episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.

In the chocolate frontier, who wants to try Bacon flavored chocolate?

That's super. I want to see Howard Hughes' urine in High Def.

Or what passes for f/x urine.

Which made me wonder, who did say that time heals all wounds?

Cursory investigations show a lot of folks refuting that time alone heals wounds, ranging from the bitter to the humorous. So who said it?

Well, I still don't know. But I do know that Hippocrates, who died in 370BC was attributed with this quote:

"Healing is a matter of
time, but it is sometimes also
a matter of opportunity."

Also, as a homage to Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, I'm pronouncing Hippocrates as "Hippo-crayts" and not "Hyp-poc-rateez". Anyone at home is welcome to play along.

So, I think we can argue that some moron prior to Hippocrates made the claim that time heals all wounds. Though not strongly argue. After all, some drunken scribe could have added "all" later on when translating from greek to latin to english. Who knows?

All I know is that I wanted an excuse to share my alternate pronounciation of Hippocrates.

Say what?

Regarding Maxwell House's recent commercial.

When the factory employees are singing "each bean is," it doesn't really sound like "each bean is"...

Dear Restless Leg Syndrome Pharmaceutical company,

I think you need to get a new name. I can't seem to take you seriously enough. And what kind of symptom is this: "do you feel the need to move?" I believe we all feel the need to move. Are you trying to make your product as universal as kleenex?

Anyway, anything you could do to enhance your credibility would be welcome. Otherwise, I keep having this image of a goofy looking guy with bulging eyes and legs that move in some perpetual, cartoon-like jig.

Incidentally, do you have something for Annoying Boss Syndrome? Or maybe "Stuck Behind Jackass in Traffic Syndrome"?

So, I get home, check the mail. On my porch is a package with the return address featuring the company name of "Total Fulfillment".

Total Fullfillment? That doesn't sound like something normal. This bag isn't shaped like something illegal I might purchase from overseas, either. Hmmm. Did I order sex toys and forget I ordered something?

No. I'm a supporter of NPR and KQED. I got one of my gifts arrived today.

Don't you hate it when you do the laundry--particularly your sheets--then you get a phone call, and you're talking well into the morning, and then you realize you still have to put sheets on your bed.

The Fandom of the Opera
Someone lives in the underground tunnels of Fresno. Deformed due to a freak accident involving hotwings at Hooter's, he dwells in the catacombs writing Slash fiction for any number of shows that he is able to siphon away from unsuspecting satellite TV subscribers.

(inspired by my ambivalent reaction to the movie version of Phantom of the Opera)
