    Bats turning left sounds pretty interesting. Wonder why that is?

    I wondered if that baby one was true, too.
    If it is, I'm gonna write my name on my baby with a black magic marker.

    That's not as weird as it sounds. Due to the # of wrong surguries being performed (wrong legs amputated, wrong organs removed, wrong patients, etc) hospitals in the US are doing similar things, like marking a big X on the limb, or writing "NO" on the limb to be left alone, or having the surgeon sign the incision site prior to operating while the patient is still awake. Wacked.

    He doesn't need pants because his pecker is on his face!
    I’m not crazy, I just need to get off this island. The doctors don’t believe I invented the chocolate éclair. But I did. I’m going to burn them all and drink soup from their skulls! Happy soup! Untie me and I’ll kill you last!
