What will we do without those tacky coffee mugs?

Drug companies will no longer ply physicians with emblazoned pens, clocks, tchotckes, etc. Whatever. They still hire Big 10 cheerleaders as drug reps and buy lunches for doctor's office staff that cost more than our current rent payments.

The coffee mug set from the makers of Actos, one each in the shape of a stomach, pancreas, and liver, kidney, etc (see the character line up here), was what inspired us to become doctors. Kidding.

Only Tangentially Related to Christmas

While waiting for the flight back from Christmas "vacation," we searched the ATL airport for a River Street Sweets store we are 98% certain used to be at Concourse B. Can anyone else corroborate that? And what happened to that franchise? Savannah is the best thing about Georgia, and these are the only souvenir worth bringing back--all the other knick-knack shops in that airport should get on the bandwagon.

Santa was Good to Us

All we really wanted for Christmas came without ribbons or tags, but we're missing her right now (girls' night out's not so fun for us), so might as well brag about the stuff Santa brought in packages, boxes, and bags, particularly the little digital camera with its hoodie carrying case that will really spruce this website up with honest-to-god graphics.

Bad jokes

A friend at work is trying to pick a name for her baby. We suggest any answer to the question, What do you call a guy with no arms and no legs? Matt, Russell, etc. Curt & Rod, if twins.

Competition in the Porn Marketplace

Just the other day, NYTimes was reporting falling demand for prostitution, and now this: 20% of teens say they've posted nude pics/videos of themselves online. Maybe there is too much competition for the pros?

Better than the Nutcracker for Christmas

The Slutcracker! From the website:

The Slutcracker is an original, over-the-top, “adults only” parody of E.T.A. Hoffman's classic holiday story, The Nutcracker. The story follows Clara, a virginal 20-something whose boyfriend Fritz becomes jealous of a special “toy” she receives for Christmas from an eccentric relative. Guided by a cast of new and intriguing friends, Clara embarks on a fantastic journey into her own sexual awakening that will leave the audience titillated, inspired, and amused.

Sounds like a must-see, if you ask me.
