    I heard about that on the Tonight Show last night, of all places (Jay Leno made a big deal that they had to verify the story before he'd tell the joke, because it was just too weird for him to believe it).

    I wonder if they both work at the same time?

    In any case, I'm sure she's getting a deal for a porn movie as we err... speak.

    That's almost as bad as the guy that went into the hospital to get hemorrhoids removed and had his penis removed instead. The surgeon went insane in the operating room, I won't go into the gory details.

    Well, if that's what she was complaining about, no wonder the docs got confused!

    "Anuses"? Don't you mean 'ani'?

    It's a good thing 'anus' is Latin. If it were Greek, the plural would have been 'anodes'!

    Hmmm I would have to come up with an possible alternative use. A new type of musical instrument perhaps?? Naa thats too asinine.

    :rofl: Dang it , anuses cleared my spell checker ani didn't. Anodes sound electrifying.
