They are talking about lentils! Is there another storm coming?

But will they (the rodents) be admitted to the Bar ?

Small-brained brown-nosed rodents means only one thing: Congress is back in session.

Mark Twain once said. "If a man could be crossed with a cat it would improve the man, but deteriorate the cat."

Now we have rodents and lentils to worry about being crossed with. Thankfully, I can't understand how a lentil could possibly be deteriorated.

Why are they wasting this on rats and mice? I know a few humans that could use some extra brain cells. For example the moron that cut me off in traffic this morning and then decided to go 30 mph in the passing lane on AN INTERSTATE HIGHWAY! I'm over it now and not bitter at all.

Steven Speilberg tried to warn us, but did we take "Pinky and The Brain" as the cautionary tale it so obviously was? Of course not.

Algernon?

These organoids have ethical concerns? Then they're already more advanced than we are.

I might've seen Tiny Human Brain Organoids open for Devo... memory hazy as usual.

A cunning, rapacious, rodent could be elected presid -- oh.

If you encounter cross rodents or lentils, I suggest singing.

Music is the key to soothing the savage beast or bean!
(However as we all know, if you choose or play Manilow, we'll notify others of your funeral.)

@ Ralph-I hope they remembered to send some flowers for Algernon.

Waving at Le Petomane and Ralph from the back of the Geezer bus.

Ben's back!

My turn to drive the geezer bus.....

La Petomane and Ralph: Charlie Gordon lives!

“I'm living at a peak of clarity and beauty I never knew existed. Every part of me is attuned to the work. I soak it up into my pores during the day, and at night—in the moments before I pass off into sleep—ideas explode into my head like fireworks. There is no greater joy than the burst of solution to a problem. Incredible that anything could happen to take away this bubbling energy, the zest that fills everything I do. It's as if all the knowledge I've soaked in during the past months has coalesced and lifted me to a peak of light and understanding. This is beauty, love, and truth all rolled into one. This is joy!”

Gee, Brain. What are we going to do tonight?

The same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the world.
