Oh my god.


911: This is 911; what is your emergency?

CALLER: Oh... oh my god. My junk. My junk. It's gone. One minute, I was reading a flyer. Next thing I knew, I woke up in this hotel bathtub packed with ice. A note said, "Your junk has been removed. Call 911." So I did.

911: I'm sorry, you want Junk Removal 911. I'll transfer you.

CALLER: Hurry! Please. I feel... dizzy.

Rock Always Says It Better

Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose—a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.
   -- Mary "Wollstonecraft" Shelley, Frankenstein

Buh-nuh nuh nuh nuh-nuh NUH, buh-nuh nuh nuh-nuh (boodle leedle eedle eedle). Buh-nuh nuh nuh nuh-nuh NUH, buh-nuh nuh nuh-nuh (wwrrrrreeeeeeoowwwww).
   -- Edgar "Whiteasgetout" Winter, "Frankenstein"
