It was good while it lasted!

(AP) -- Study: Fellatio may significantly decrease the risk of breast cancer in women.

How did I miss the clues?! Thanks Paul for setting me straight. As the disclaimer says; The names alone suffice to expose the text as a spoof: Dr. B.J. Sooner. Dr. Inserta Shafteer. Dr. Len Lictepeen. This is clearly not an Associated Press news story.

The text first appeared, dolled up to look exactly like a CNN News Web page, on a college student's Web site in early October 2003. It vanished without explanation soon afterward, only to reappear 24 hours later with a disclaimer stating that the story, which now bore the byline "Brandon Williamson," was intended "for entertainment purposes only." (A subsequent version was also stripped of all references to CNN, presumably due to threats of litigation.)

How’s that for an instant karmic ass kicking for the Royal post?!

A few thoughts, Shazza...

First, for all men, all over the world, I can only say, "thank you, thank you, Jesus!"

However, I fear a "bum rush" for my family jewels comparable to any George Romero movie.

Question--Will it now be an honor and a sign of a healthy lifestyle to be called a cocksucker?

Hey, we can use the photo of Chippamingo for our public service campaign! What am I talking about? Scroll back to the Thursday, February 15th Hodgepodge post.

I can truly say that I am not often lost for words but this entry is one of them.

It answers one question though why older women are more in danger of breast cancer than ever. Most men of my age are either dead or spoken for.

The first sentence of Ely's comment is totally and utterly brilliant and brought a big grin to my wrinkled cheeks:-)

Ely you should carry this article around with you, per chance you come across a spitter (no pun intended)!

Mater:I hope you meant your facial cheeks!

Best quote of the article:

"There's definitely fertile ground for more research."

Yeah, so watch your step.


clean up on aisle 69!

zing! pow!

i think i'll just risk the breast cancer. lol

Ely from NYC said...

I'm in deep mourning now...

Why is it that all things that are too good to be true are just that? Funny, I thought I knew a Dr. Inserta Shafteer.

Looking forward to your next provocatively stimulating post! You're on a roll, sistah!

Sharon said...

Ely: me too-with a family history of BC...this was my e-ticket baby!!

Ely from NYC said...

e-ticket to where? New York?

mater70 said...

Don't you dare go to see Ely Sharon, I JUST KNOW he has evil thoughts about you. Call it a mother's intuition.........

I'll say no more.

Ely from NYC said...

That's ok, Mater, Sharon doesn't have to come to New York, there's not too much to do here anyway. I'll be in Maui on the 31st, and we'll be having some wild parties dedicated to the eradication of breast cancer worldwide. We'll have a posh pad overlooking Haiku's downtrodden, and I'm bringing my best friend, his wife and their 3 and 5 year old girls with me! Why don't you consider a visit?

mater70 said...

God, you're such a tempter and I love that in a man. Thank you for the delightful invitation Ely -would my role be a babysitter perchance? The thought of looking down on the plebs of Haiku really appeals to me.
Alas, sadly, I am unable to take up your suggestion as I have (a) a scraped car to sort out and (b) an 8ft leaking radiator to replace PLUS Sharon is coming home to see me in May so I really do have to save my pennies. If you wish to extend the invitation to 2008 I might take an interest then - I would need a chauffeur - how's your driving abilities?

Anna Lyn said...

Sharon, pack me in your suitcase! I wanna visit Mater too! :D

This should win the Oscar for the best online joke...

mater70 said...

Anna Lyn you're more than welcome but as Sharon tends to "pack light" to come home I doubt there will be room in her bag. My guess is that she packs light so she can fit in all the new shoes she buys in the UK (she has a shoe fettish for those not in the know).

GP, welcome back to the land of blog - have you been busy chasing waves?

mater70 said...

My fan club is growing, it must be up to at least six members now so Sharon, in case I forget, you'll have to show me how to set up my own blog site when you come "home".

For all you Sharon officionados Sharon is still a Brit so, therefore, coming home is the correct terminology.
