Near Death Experiences: Hey, Something Else...

Have you ever woken up suddenly, perhaps from a nightmare or some such, only to find that you can’t move? If you’ve never had it happen before, I don’t recommend it: it’s terribly unpleasant, especially the first time...

Masturbation May Kill You! Or It May Not.

Widge barges into my office here in our underwater lair off the coast of Iowa. He’s in a panic. Not that unusual, he probably thinks Skynet is trying to play Missile Command for real or something. Especially when he comes in screaming...

Talk Amongst Yourselves

Well, not to share too much with you folks, but I was apparently the proud recipient of a kidney stone last night. So I had a hot date with about 18mg of morphine and a trip to the emergency room. Not, however, in that order. Posting for the...

Three Stooges for the Arthritis Foundation

A Stooge Marketing Campaign

A commercial from the 60s in which the Stooges of the day–Moe, Larry and Curly Joe–talk about the pitfalls of arthritis quackery. Makes me wish I could find some more post-Stooges material from Moe…like this. Update: The...
