Roll Out The Barrel is always a good one to start a party with.

Of course, when when someone introduces the administrator you could play the song that goes "I don't want her, you can have her, she's too fat for me!" Which is also appropriate whenever a football player fumbles the ball.

Nah, it's a medical group not hospital thing.

The thing that frosts me the most is the stupid generic mylanta. I probably used about 1.5 cents worth. I was President of the organization for 8 years and signed a bunch of big-ass checks and paid for dozens of 400 guest Christmas parties and some chowderhead complaints about generic mylanta.

Next year no Salsa DJ. I will advocate for a Lawrence Welk cover band.



At least my Vet gave me some pain pills from his sample stash. After fifteen hundred dollars for Gall bladder surgery I think he owed me that much.

Too late - already has a whole herd of kids... besides, he's probably worried he'd wake up to find his stubby tusks completely amputated...

I'm not going to be the one that holds that box in front of an enraged war elephant. And imagine how the mice feel?

This is a much more elegant solution to terrifying elephants than what the Romans came up with... however, mice scurrying through the grass are probably a lot less noticeable than flaming hogs!

Hey Bob!

I've done some searching for the difference between primary and secondary testicond. No source (unless I pony up and buy a textbook) directly says, but based on these results, which also do not explicitly say, I am inferring the difference is in evolution. So "primary" meaning the species evolved that way all through their ancestry; "secondary" meaning the species ancestry included species with a scrotum but that evolved away.

Did I get that right? Is that what is meant by primary versus secondary in this instance?
