*wonders how they knew he was hung*

Scarecrow: "If I only had a br....ooooh! Look at that!!"

it was/is keith richards!

Wasn't Sammy Hagar missing a brain a few days ago?

Send it to... ? Sheesh; don't we have enough brain-dead politicians there already. Though they do somehow manage to supprt huge egos with that necrotic tissue. Must be zombies (which certainly explains "my" Rep and Senators).

pre-Congressional man

This is a job for CSI Heslington.
