laughing elmoHave a laugh before 2007 comes to an end!

Man goes to the doctor
Can you help me, I have a hereditary disease?
What disease is that?
That’s not a hereditary disease!
It is when it’s in your genes.

This joke courtesy of reader Snowy. What? You didn’t think *I* could have come up with that all on my own, did you?

Happy New Year!!

I wish I was a double helix so I could unzip your genes!
