did he do #2 in his pants?

Pencil me in!

Under Obamacare he would be prescribed two aspirin and told to come back tomorrow.

2B or not 2B?

Boy, have we got a girl for him...

I think I would have noticed something like that, but I'm not a blanket that one throws over ones legs when it gets cold out.
