    “Healthcare providers first look for an athlete lying on the field in a fetal position…and screaming.”—That’s also how we detect someone hiding from their annual rectal exam…

    Summer break or not, I had to stop by for a PT Headlines post. So glad I did. Lots of great laughs (that make me feel terrible for laughing) in this one!

    • Smaktakula says:

      Glad you enjoyed it, Carrie–and thanks for stopping by; it’s always delightful to see you. I hope your summer is treating you well.

      I loved “Spooky Road” although I wish you’d given a general vicinity (I don’t mean like GPS coordinates–I’m no stalker, but something I can look at on a map ((e.g., NE Vermont))). I once saw a road in Maine similar to that. It wasn’t as cool or secluded, but it was called ‘Wit’s End,’ which made it kinda neat.

      • Carrie Rubin says:

        It’s a street in Keene, New Hampshire. It’s so eerie on a snowy night–probably the worst conditions to get out of my car and snap a picture…

      • Smaktakula says:

        Cool, thanks! The closest I’ve been to there is Austerlitz, New York, which is a bit to the south, and the NH coast. I do see that Keene is not terribly far from Nashua (nothing in that part of the country is very far from anything else), home of former congressman Dick Sweatt. Actually, I don’t know that he was from Nashua, but my friend whom he represented was.

      • Carrie Rubin says:

        You’re right. Everything is in close proximity, yet far enough apart to be annoying when you don’t want to drive 40 minutes to go see a movie in a decent theater…

      • Smaktakula says:

        It takes me about a half-hour (with parking) to get to the closest theater with more than one screen. I don’t watch many movies, though.

      • Carrie Rubin says:

        That’s the beauty of living in a A Place Between Cleveland and Akron (said tongue-in-cheek)–I can get to most anywhere I want in any direction within 5-10 minutes.

      • Smaktakula says:

        Do you have drive-ins? I think it would be fun to see a drive-in by the light of a burning river.

      • Carrie Rubin says:

        Aw, that’s sweet. Maybe they could show ‘Carrie.’

  2. Lots of stories about babies, pregnancies and boobs in this one. Smak, is there something you’re not telling us that we should know?

  3. calahan says:

    “Well, in a very real way you’ve been knocked-up by Yoo-Hoo and Jelly doughnuts.” Ha. Rarely do I laugh out loud, but this got me. Which sucks because I’m in a confessional.

  4. whiteladyinthehood says:

    I should always keep to the Headlines and your funny commentary and NOT read the articles! But I just think No, No, that’s bullshit….stop me!!! (what sicko would rape a duck)

  5. El Guapo says:

    If you knew earlier that it was a food baby,you could have saved that Peace Corp trip.
    But we’ve rented your room til you get back, so I guess it’s a win!

  6. jmmcdowell says:

    Isn’t Blond Monkey a band? Or wait, maybe it’s a craft beer. If it’s a real monkey in Congo, it’s probably going to be bush meat before it can take over anything.

  7. My favorite caption here: “Where’s Your Theory Of Relatives Now, Eisenstein?”

    • Smaktakula says:

      Well, bless you for not just thinking I was a moron (in this instance, anyway). Being a pedantic nerd myself, I’m tickled by the notion that even in this moment of extreme terror, Arvind is struggling to contain the urge to remind his assailant, “Actually, it’s the theory of relativity, and the man who first propounded it…” because he knows it will only start the beating afresh.

      “(SOB!) Someday…someday I’ll start a company and I’ll hire you to work at it. Then, when you least expect it, I’LL DOWNSIZE, motherfucker! You’ll see!”

  8. Alex Autin says:

    Damn, that’s an awful lot of Jimmy Carter hate. Let it go….

    • Smaktakula says:

      We were willing to forgive him when he started building houses. But he didn’t have to bring weed into this. That was out of line, and he knows it.

  9. I, for one, welcome our new goose-stepping blond monkey overlords.

  10. I am SO HAPPY you put a picture of Howard the Duck in there. I hadn’t seen the picture yet, and instantly thought of it when I read that headline. I hate missed opportunities for jokes.

  11. Thank goodness editor’s just a name that doesn’t have real meaning at all–hilarious stuff, as always! I was just scared with the last pic for a while, I thought that person lost his/her nipples.
