Overheard in the Office...

RX: "I've had two of those injections that give you fungal mennonitis... meningitis."

Me: "Mennonitis?"

RX: "It makes you go out and paint the bumpers on your car black."

Unpossible! Why, everyone KNOWS that with Obamacare, Evil Big Pharma has been reined in and the Nation's Drug Supply is Perfectly Safe! Nancy said so!

I had Mennonittis once.

I only shaved my upper lip and then ran out and opened a combination construction and auction business with my brother.

What was really strange was explaining to my girlfriend why I was suddenly married with 7 kids.

Fungal mennonitus! I must remember that one. There's a town on the Eastside of the San Joaquin called Reedley where even the mexicans are Mennonites.

Symptoms include baking moon pies and wearing bonnets.

Unlike the Amish, the Mennonites can at least drive to their Friday night Rake Fights.

I used to know a guy who was one of the owners of the Little Five Points Pub in Atlanta. Both of us attended the Atlanta Friends Meeting. He was always careful to point out that he came from a family of _chrome_--bumper Mennonites.

I think I have that!

@perl: Huh? Or what do you mean by that?

perlhaqr said...

Just that I have a tendency to dechrome cars. I had no idea it was a medical malady. I wonder if I could get on disability for it... ;)

@perl. Not in Flarduh you couldn't. I recall talking to a woman on the phone at CARD, asking if there was any help for people who are excessively earnest and socially awkward; that is, Aspies.

She told me no, and further told me that I sounded pretty normal to her, and also that if I wanted a dx, it would cost me a kilobuck or two, and it wouldn't get me any help from the State.

I agree with her, philosophically.

I do need help, and I get it from the congregation of my church.
