And now for something completely different...

...a blog with three topics.

Headlines in the News...

1. Read this headline carefully... "Teen accused of fondling girl to get psychiatric evaluation". If this is what it takes to get a psych eval nowadays, then we truly need universal health care ASAP!!

2. "CCHR criticises psychiatry" ... this is "news"?

3. "Iguana's stubborn erection to get the chop" ... this is why we are taught in medical school to avoid trazodone in iguanas.

You neglected to mention that Mozart, the iguana in your story has two, TWO penises!

Penis envy, perhaps?


PS Where's the new pic of you guys by the fire?

Iguanas have two penises? Seriously? Cool.

Ummm... Roy, you qualified as a psychiatrist at a med school where you were treating depressed reptiles??
How about coming to SA on a busman's holiday - there are a few unhappy tortoises I'd like you to evaluate...

Haha now I read that first article's headline to mean, "Teen accused of fondling girl in order to get psychiatric evaluation" - meaning that the headline was saying he fondled that girl just so he could get a psych eval. But now that I've read the article, I now get it. It means that the teen fondled the girl - and now they're waiting on the psych eval...I think maybe it should say in the headline, "Teen accused of fondlng girl is to receive psychiatric evaluation". That could almost go on Leno in the Headlines section...but I don't know if many people read it the first way that I did!!!

And tooo hilarious about the iguana!! Even though it's not funny what happened to it. But I had no idea they had two penises!! Wild.......!

And yes, I want to see the fire pic, too! :)

Carrie, that's how I read it. I didn't even see the possibility it could mean anything else. And then I was bored later and clicked through.

I, too, thought the teen fondled someone in order to get himself psychiatrically evaluated.

Roy, should we worry about you?

That's why I posted it! (I love ambiguous headlines.)

Ok, so who's gonna make the Doublemint joke for Mozart?

The pic... I'm gonna cartoonize the feet. I swear I'll do it tonight.
