Big George or Big Dick come 'round here I'm gonna let 'em know what I think of 'em, and I ain't a-gonna mince words neither. I'd display my erudition and vocabulary, but Big George wouldn't understand it and Big Dick would have a heart attack.

Did you ever notice the similarity of Big George to the The Joker in Batman and Big Dick to Lex Luthor in Superman?

Truth is truth, Amos. They ARE out to get me. They keep trying to make me give up but I'm smarter than that. I believe what our President said, that if we quit now the terrorists win and also that the mission is accomplished and why isn't he on MOAB?

Actually, Rap was just getting home. But that's all right. I'm used to it by now. Rejection, I mean. Have I ever mentioned that I lack a navel because my mother rejected me?

I couldn't resist. Rap was probably soaking his poor knee in a hot tub or rolling on the Absorbine Jr.

Well, if you had a prehensile sphincter, I could offer a suggested solution which would even leave your lips free to kiss some donors in appropriate places...

I told you earlier I play it with my toes. How else would you push down the valves? With your fingers? Don't make me laugh! You need your fingers to play the clavichord!

These damn browser specific codes annoy me. Up thread I posted a very clear reference to Raspaire's desideratum, ∞ - 1.   But when viewed in IE, it becomes a silly degree symbol.   

I suspect this is Microsoft's fault.   Between Microsoft and the Bush family we can account for 85% of the woes of Western civilization, no?

What thoughts I havem you soon will see
Concerning you, and your poor knee.
The poor thing's tired, that is plain
Protesting, sad, and full of pain.
Consider all its work outstanding
In past times giving understanding
Supporting in foolish times or wise
Half of your weight, half of your sighs
Giving its all for half your jogging
Standing in service whilst you were snogging
Doing its best, or bent, or straight
To help you walk, or screw, or wait.
Now for all this, acknowledge well
Your knee has followed you through hell!
Thank it for service in bearing loads
In jungles, highways, hills and roads.
It has been valiant, do not doubt it--
Your understanding would fail, without it.
And on the ground, upon your face
Like some cheap substitute third base
You'd lie in endless apathy
Except for the works of your good knee.
Therefore be kind, kind words it tell
And it shall understand you well.
May it have healing, renovation,
Strength, support, and relaxation,
Until, itself well understood
It can return to doing good.

Yes, I was going to snare it but decided to let someone else have it instead.

Rather than be a Grabby-Grabby, I went to the orthopod. He took one look at my knee and said, "Kinda swollen." Then he did some knee jerks on my knees, and ordered x-rays. X-rays didn't show much (except that I have exceptionally good looking bones). The Doc suspects I have a sprained medial collateral ligament and, likely, a meniscus tear. He gave me a shot of cortisone/lidocaine mixture and said that if I was still "crunching" as I walk in two weeks to call him and he'd order up an MRI -- and then surgery.

So even though I have been in pain I still showed the kindness and consideration, the thoughtfulness, that Mom instilled in me and I let Amos have 22,300.

I am very grateful to have the insurance I do. Believe it or not, the city even pays 90% of Pat's coverage. When I started it paid everything for both of us. Granted that we have to pay our own dental and vision, but those don't amount to a lot per paycheck.

This is the first job I've had with benefits like this (apart from the Army). I go to the doctor pretty much of my choice, I don't need a referral for a specialist, and my co-pay is $20 per visit. Medicines are $20 or $10 co-pay, depending upon whether or not it's generic, and I can get up to 100 days supply at one time.

Yeah, I got it good. I ain't complainin', believe me. I just think of those who aren't as lucky and, well...something has to be done.

You're lucky to have insurance. A dear friend who died last summer had been jerked around for several years by the county as he waited for a hip replacement. He had arthritis and was injured about five years ago, and was no longer able to afford his insurance. I know that between inadequate health care and the slowness of the public charity system he probably lost 30-40 years (he was 47).

Needy cranks are a chronic problem in North Ontario, and I think that may account for the heavy per capita alcohol consumption up there.

I think the patella is fine. It's the other parts that worry me.

Yes, I suspect they will cut my knee open and Do Something In There. Probably take out parts of my body. They're doing that, you know. Tooth extractions, colon polyps -- you see, there's Secret Government Organization which is trying to clone me because genetic perfection is desired. They take bits and pieces so they have enough of my genetic material to insure success.
