We discovered last night that Dr. Mrs. The Thought is 42ish% Jewish. Previously, we had no idea. This information was discovered through the wonders of SCIENCE! tm Which is to say, genetic tests (23 and Me being our service of choice).

Also, my dog moos.

Is this, too, made possible through the wonders of science? :P

This "ninja" didn't quite make it over the heavily-spiked fence. Like the comments say, "Good 'ol alcohol!"

Ashkenazi or Sephardic?

Genesis, thanks so much for linking to the in vitro meat article! Like birth pods, it's a subject that provides me with great amusement and hope for the future state of human affairs.

I love the idea. End world hunger, one petri-dish-chicken-nugget at a time!

Those comments are hilarious! ("Is this what they mean by a spike in the crime rate?", )

Homophones. Specifically, pear, pare, and pair. See, the other day I bought four pears, one each of four varieties. So, that's two pairs of pears, or, if you will, a pair of a pair of pears. Now, just a moment ago, I was cutting out a soft spot from one of the pears with--what else?--my paring knife. So I was paring one of the pears from the pair of pair of pears.

This is why foreigners hate America. When they were kids their teachers forced them to learn English, thus sowing (not sewing) the seeds (not cedes) of their (not there and certainly not they're) great (not grate) pique (not peek and not peak either).

Homophones, homonyms... Yeah, I like them, too.  But not for the obvious reasons.

I am amused that yesterday I heard doctors propose taking a "colo-truck" to the state fair to provide free colonoscopies. "Deep-fried colonoscopies," of course.

Medical humour is a strange but wonderful thing.

I was under the impression that one has to take some very powerful laxatives prior to a colonoscopy. I should think that would put a crimp in the logistics.

My amusement of the moment is pieces of music which are very obviously written in a certain key, but which completely avoid the tonic until later on, reserving it for a dramatic climax. It's more of a "that's fascinating" amusement than a "that's cute" one.

I agree, Thought.  Case in Point:

What do you get when you cross an analyst and a therapist?

An analrapist.

Why is it so funny. WHY.
Also why, whenever I get a glass of water, do I get the urge to pour it on my dog's head?
