Tude, please note that is North Carolina, not the Palmetto State.

However, you're right, and that's a little too close for comfort. Airwick and I are packing our bags and coming north to live with Tude.

I had just finished lunch when I saw that video. Bleh. I think I'll skip dinner tonight.

It almost looks like one of those colonoscopy videos they show on TLC.

You watch those for entertainment? I use those shows as an ipecac when I'm done eating.

I do not watch the TLC medical shows for entertainment, my mother does. She also likes the surgery videos.
