Umm...



This lovely video is part of an ad campaign in New York called Carpe Testes. I wonder if doctors will start suggesting to men that they have a partner assist them in their testicular exam? Heck, if doctors are suggesting as much to women for their breast self-examinations, why not men?

Oh, and in related news, it's been 15 years since Lorena Bobbitt cut John Wayne Bobbitt down to size, so to speak. My, my, my. Time flies, doesn't it?

Oh, that was darn sweet.

Lane just had an exam and said his doctor was going on about how men need to get checked regularly for prostate cancer. He described how the exam goes and I said well hell, I could do that for you for free!

But I guess we'll let the professionals handle (hah) that.

Men are notoriously terrible about regular exams, etc.

Go to the site and watch all the commercials. The hockey one killed me. Where do you find this stuff?

Adriana: Given how fascinated men are with their junk, it surprises me they aren't more active in being examined. I mean, what's the hang up? Fear of mortality? A sense of emasculation? I mean, if women can regularly have their breastesses squishified, what keeps men from having their crown jewels felt up?


Gilahi: Ironically, in the Salt Lake Tribune. Check it out.

My husband has a female doctor, he has no problem going in for exams. Okay, now that I've basically said that out loud, should I be jealous? I mean that's like a freebe.

Not, but he does joke about it all the time.

Now off to watch the hockey one.

WHA HA HA HA HA HA!! That is the best thing I've seen all year! At first I thought that "If you notice you've got three, then a doctor you should see" was my favorite part, but then on the second time I played it, because my eight month old daughter enjoyed dancing to the music, I noticed the two bouncing balls over the words.

What fun! Next time my husband nags me about getting a mammogram, I'll tell him to go have his balls felt up by a guy friend. Good idea :)

Cele: Good on Ducky! As for whether it's a freebie, try not to think about it.


NG: I knew you'd like this one!


Phoebe: :-D

Being the medical field, the big selling point for signifcant others performing the exams is that they would be the first to notice any change. This hold true for brestesses and jewels.

I will send all of you a bill for your co-pay. (I kid, for my friends the advice is free!)

Wicked: You've got my co-pay! Friend or no, where else am I going to get sound, reasonable medical advice for less then $20?
