Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Michael Douglas says he got throat cancer from cunnilingus - what does science say about that claim?... "Stinktum" should be a word. It sound much better than either "anus" or "sphincter"... Burning Esophagus would be a good name for a band...  Awesome photo... Some people are suggesting Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) as the next Doctor Who but I think the identical twins who played Fred and George would be a better choice. That way you could have the Dr. crossing his own time-line as often as you like without expensive special effects... Interesting look at how the Red Sox got David Ortiz 10-years ago and how he asked to be let go when he wasn't fitting in at first. Getting rid of Shea Hillenbrand and keeping Ortiz will always be one of the most under-rated moves in team history... The World Pastrami Eating Contest was Sunday - here's the trophy. For my money ($5) the best pastrami sandwich in Worcester is at Breen's Cafe... There should have been an episode of Magnum PI where Magnum saw Higgins kill his ex-wife and a waiter but kept silent about it for years... Separated at birth - Alec Baldwin and Millard Fillmore... The word "posh" came from Thomas Cook booking British upper class on cruises with "Port Out - Starboard Home" cabins...


  1. At first glance the Fillmore/Baldwin pictures are similar, but on closer examination it doesn't hold up. Noses especially.

    I'm trying to fit the Magnum PI thing to the OJ case and am not sure who Magnum is in that scenario.

    Does Hallmark have a line of cards that cover the Michael Douglas situation? "Thanks for the oral - - sorry about the throat cancer" Hmmm, might need work.

  2. Bill - Magnum used to stay rent free in the guest house just like Kato Calin (or however you spell his name)
