Could obesity be cured by injecting our guts with fecal bacteria from ancient mummies?

UH! Correct! Isn't that called sepsis or something?

Don't we want to avoid having fecal material in our body cavity? Isn't that why being shot in the gut was so bad?

Just askin".

If your erection lasts more than six thousand years, consult your doctor.

i don't believe in that mummy sh!t - how about a Cairo-practor?

Snork @Cindy!

Just like modern medicines, or at least the ones they advertise on TV, the funniest line being:

"if you notice you've stopped breathing or have died, consult your doctor..."

ligirl, you're just in de Nile.

tut-tut, your blueness

funny man, I saw one of those commercials where they actually said, "Have you or a loved one died as a result of a doctor's mistake?"

Maybe this is why the Sphinx has no nose?

Could be, MtB ... or it wuz one of them Egyptian doctors in a misguided attempt @ an early "nose job" ... merely guessin' ...

I'm wonderin' if re-introduction of "gut-rumble" bacteria would increase the methane output ... seems logical ...

I know ... mud' ... you go first ...

Well, have you? Died I mean. When the side effects are worse than the original problem (ever see the one with Phil Mikkelsen?) it's time to change doctors.

As for the ancient fecal bacteria (and how is Keith doing these days?), what could possibly go wrong?

Right, Kharis?

When your tummy hurts, call your mummy.
