Today's Hoot!
The Good Professor's post on Kurds Hemmed in by Turds reminds me of a meeting I attended more years ago than I care to remember. It was way past the end of a normal day and everyone was punchy. Then a gentleman making a presentation put up a slide which informed the audience that in order to accomplish a particular task, he needed "3 extra shifts per week". The exercise of determining which letter he left out of "shift" is left to the reader. It certainly had an ennervating effect on the audience.

On the other hand, I can think of some people for whom 3 extra "shifts" per week might prove salubrious in view of the excess quantities of that particular substance contained within their persons.
