Laugh-y laugh laugh laugh

Chris said it would be funnier if I mentioned "diarrhea" and "Ed McMahon" in the same train of thought. And I must admit, it really does have some possibilities.

But you know what really made me crack up over the weekend? I was interviewing this dude who owns one of the last successful family owned restaurants in NWI (holla if y'all know Teibel's), and he and I got off on a tangent and started talking about this illness he was stricken with a couple months ago. (Doctors originally thought it was a stroke, but turns out it was a herpes virus gone apeshit and into his eye cavity (!).) So as he was describing this, he says that at one point before the diagnosis -- and I quote -- "I couldn't hold my butt with both hands." And I'm STILL giggling over it. I mean, do we hold our butts with one hand? And to what purpose?

In fact, I was giggling so hard that I had to start coughing to keep him from realizing that I was laughing when he was being serious.

Btw, I'm entry no. 666. Is that bad?
