I took a plane recently to my uncle's funeral. I had to make a last minute decision in line to get molested or irradiated. I chose the pat-down, and it was one of the most invasive experiences with government in my life. They had karate-chopped my genitals four times before letting me get on the plane.

Sorry about your uncle

and your karate-chop... The only thing worse than going to a funeral is getting your genitals karate-chopped four times... on your way to a funeral.
Bless you and yours my friend

Did you say?

Did you say a lot lower and a lot softer? Perhaps say this next time, "there goes my nipples again"

I wonder what looks you would get if you did :)
