In between shopping and wrapping presents, I have been reading some of Dave Barry's old columns. I used to read them regularly in the Chicago Tribune newspaper when I lived in Chicago and I haven't read any in years.
I came across a column that he wrote about his own experiences having a colonoscopy that had me ROFLMAO!! (English translations..rolling on the floor laughing my a-s-s off) At the end of his column, he listed the following quotes from patients that made me laugh all over again
The perfect stress reliever for me is laughter and it's free, so far! So instead of listing quotes this week, I want you to experience a little laughter during your hectic days of the seasons.
Happy Holidays and Happy Quotable Sunday!

On the subject of Colonoscopies... by Dave Barry

Colonoscopies are no joke, but these comments during the exam were quite humorous..... A physician claimed that the following are actual comments made by his patients (predominately male) while he was performing their colonoscopies:

1. 'Take it easy, Doc. You're boldly going where no man has gone before!

2. 'Find Amelia Earhart yet?'

3. 'Can you hear me NOW?'

4. 'Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?'

5. 'You know, in Arkansas , we're now legally married.'

6. 'Any sign of the trapped miners, Chief?'

7. 'You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out...'

8. 'Hey! Now I know how a Muppet feels!'

9. 'If your hand doesn't fit, you must quit!

10. 'Hey Doc, let me know if you find my dignity.'

11. 'You used to be an executive at Enron, didn't you?'

12. 'God, now I know why I am not gay.'

And the best one of all.

and finally.....

13. 'Could you write a note for my wife saying that my head is not up there?'

  17. I used to love Dave Barry, too. These lines about a colonoscopy are great! I love it! I'm hoping I don't have to get one for a while more.

    By the way, I tried the Updated Editor and I see what you mean about the old editor being better sometimes. I've decided to stick with the old one.

  19. I use both editors,I like the look of the updated editor but I like the picture and spell check from the old. It's a pain but I go back and forth!
    Have a wonderful holiday season with your family in Hawaii.
    Love!
