* 1/2 cup butter
* 3/4 cup brown sugar

Why hasn't someone posted a link to McSweeney's before? Also, where are the links to this "Onion" newspaper that I've been hearing about?

Sort of a double. A one-and-a-halfle?

This made me laugh.

And this one.

Also, from the same site, thought it would worth linking this again.

Onstad weighs in.

Then again, I submit to (and am rejected by) the site frequently, so I really can't talk.

After last night's dog masturbation video post, my eyes are grateful for the text-bath.

Not nearly as good as the one by Henry Rollins.

Scrubs are actually very comfortable. They make great pajamas. When I was in high school, my Dad worked as security for a hospital, and he'd bring scrubs home. He said they were just gonna throw them away. I used them like PJs throughout my teen years, and for just puttering around the house. Dad did too. I mighta mowed the lawn in them a couple times. Really. They're very comfy. I went to a convenience store in them one night and the guy behind the desk there presumed I was a doctor. That was a strange conversation. I almost corrected him but then figured what the hell let him think that.

It wasn't until many years later that it occurred to me these were used scrubs. I mean some doctor wore them once while blood was spurting out of a patient. Dad washed them of course. I never saw them with blood on them, but still. Cringeworthy. I wear sweat pants for PJs now, and if I wear them to the convenience store, the guy presumes I exercise, and I let him think that.

Last time I went to a hospital I saw they were selling scrubs in the gift shop. I don't think they were used, but still. Gives me the willies thinking about it now. I also can't watch the TV show Scrubs. Freaks me out.

Just reading this bit made the click worthwhile...
    Last month, while in the throes of cramping so painful I wanted to reach inside my body and yank out my uterus, I opened an Always maxi pad, and there, printed on the adhesive backing, were these words: "Have a Happy Period." Are you fucking kidding me?
Too fucking funny.

I wish the Always maxi pad woman would get period-free birth control. Or prescription painkillers.

Aw, I do yardwork in my scrubs. I don't give a shit what the neighbors think, and they're easy to clean. Haters wish they could wear drawstring pants to work.
