With trends like that, who needs enemas?

July 21, 2010


Blog Guy, my doctor says I have to get a colonoscopy. I understand it’s a really awful ordeal what with having to, you know, totally clean yourself out, and then go into the clinic and have an anesthetic and then they jam that thing you-know-where.

xray vertical 220Like most people, I come to you for all my tough medical questions. Is there an easier way to take this test?

Of course there is. You can just buy one of those new Home Colonoscopy Kits at any good drugstore.

Wow! Do I still have to drink that awful yucky stuff to purge my system the night before?

No, the home machine comes with some old unrefrigerated egg salad sandwiches. You’ll be purged in no time.

Old egg salad! Yummers! But I understand the colonoscopy takes a couple of hours. I’m not sure I can concentrate on looking at a monitor that long.

Then just doze off for a few minutes, as this dude is doing during his colonoscopy. Who’s gonna know?

I’ll do it! But wait, what if I actually find something that shouldn’t be there?

Look in the kit. What do you thank that wire coat hanger and brillo pad are for?

Hey! I’ve been in that airport! I think. Maybe not, since they didn’t catch me.

You know… that butt is actually quite manly… not model manly… but real manly…
Why are YOU calling it yummers, Mr.Pilot??

“Old egg salad! Yummers!” I found the use of “yummers” to be amusing.

You have a manly bum Shra? So you mean it’s hairy and itches often?

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

You are mistaking your bum for mine, Mr.Pilot…
I could have said more, but hey, its a family blog after all… :D

Just look at those love handles! The belt does double duty: it holds the pants up and the gut in. I bet he has manboobs, too.

Wonder what the guys would think if there was a well-endowed female in there?
Why do I even bother wondering, when I KNOW!
