I usually answer the door in my Fruit-of-the-Looms ... even scares off cops.
Do they ever ask if that's a banana in your underwear, or are you just glad to see them?

Better to keep the banana in your ear, so you can pretend not to hear...

You should never put anything in your ear, except your elbow.

Eh?  Sorry, I have an elbow in my ear!  Seriously, have you ever read a Q-Tip package?  The one thing I thought they were supposed to be used for, you shouldn't!

People used to call into the Dr. Dean Edell show and complain about belly-button stink, and he'd ask them if they clean their navels with Q-tips. When they invariably said yes, they do, he'd tell them how cotton bits would come off the Q-tip and fester in there, and the bacteria was causing the stink. I've never used the things for anything since then.

I use 'em for plastic welding fluid (if I'm working on a large area) and certain kinds of paint, and for testing ink colors.  Basically, they're useful for everything except the stuff people think they're supposed to be used for.

They are also good for applying wood glue to small areas.  Not much other purpose.  Now I have to figure out what to do with the other 499 in the box...

Have we decided which Christ we're putting back into which Christianity?

Listening to Jesus Christ Superstar now, as it were.  As far as Christ being an original goes, look to Mithra.

Older than that, and with many fathers, not just one.

Fer sure, dood!  The earliest wasn't Mithra.  But he pre-dated Heysus.  The important thing to realize is that the christian text is way late and copied from everyone else.  So there isn't a dime (or 30) of value in anything in there.
