There Goes My Weekend

File under "Scientists are such a buzz kill"...

Oral sex linked to mouth cancer?

And the money quote:

"We have known for some time that there is a small but significant group of people with oral cancer whose disease cannot be blamed on decades of smoking and drinking, because they're too young,"

Excuse me. I'm going off in search of strong drink.

Well, so far smoking causes cancer, drinking causes breast cancer, normal sex has been linked to cervical cancer in women, now oral sex is bad for us too.

I'm waiting for next week when they announce that food. sleep, or the act of breathing causes cancer.

Which is why I pay little attention to these, "studies," anymore...until they have been confirmed 100 times over.

Popping corn in the palm kernal oil as we speak. Ah. There. I have sprinkled it less that liberally with salt and have been generous with butter.

Off to wash it down with Red Dye #2 Kool-Aid after I remove my tin hat.

Good helk.

Well, alcohol does kill most germs, so you should be fine.

Oh my gosh, I can forsee a whole new series of lawsuits ... can you see Miss Lewinski sueing Slick Willie for giving her cancer?
