Bye Mom, I’m off to school!

Doesn’t that feel better? Now, all the junk that has to go from your mouth to your nose can get there easily. Like, you know, streams of milk when you’re watching the Stooges, and stuff like that.
Coming tomorrow: Getting to those hard-to-reach areas between your ears and cerebral cortex! Get your pipe-cleaners ready!
