Gems from the sidebar

We've got healthcare on our mind these last few days. The Crone Speaks introduces a modicum of rationality into the recent mammogram debate. Tom Harper points out the paradox of botox in a country where many people can't afford necessary procedures:

Last year there were 4.7 million Botox injections, at an average cost of $400 each. Now — going way waaay out on a limb here — I’m gonna take a wild guess that these Botox injections didn’t come out of the rent money. Senate Democrats are making the same guess, and they’ve proposed a five percent excise tax on all elective cosmetic surgeries. Botox injections, cosmetic implants, teeth-whitening — fork it over!

Cyberkitten tickles my gigglebone with the latest incarnation of the Obama poster:




Dilbert has a funny take on all the hooplah over pig flu (reminds a bit of the endless smearing on of antibacterial soap at work).

And last but not least, Snowbabies warns us men about not listening to our female counterparts with this little morality tale titled If only men would listen:

Man driving down road.


Woman driving up same road


They pass each other


Woman yells out her window, "PIG!"


Man yells out his window, "BITCH!"


Man rounds next curve


Crashes into a huge pig in middle of road.
