Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

I get the average testicle statistics but you lost me on the breast?
Don't we all have them except for medical intervention reasons?

Men do have breasts, and a few get breast cancer.

Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

One more from a radio interview, where a panel of scientists were debating whether early Homo Sapiens (us) had interbred with Neanderthals. The female scientist on the panel, exasperated at the complete denial of such a thing happening in our early history as a species by another male panel member said;

"There has been a long history of adolescent Homo Sapiens inserting their genetalia in all manner of inappropriate orifices."

Game, set, match!

I thought the scientific controversy was mainly about whether such a union would produce offspring, and if so, would those offspring be fertile

(cf, say, the progeny of donkeys and horses, which are not)

However I can well believe that in this particular discussion, that was not the prime concern : -)

Nope. Still not happy. They are below average, not average.
It's like saying the average person has a .000001% club foot.
Or that the average CF member is 20% smartarse

Depends on whether you think of "average" as mean, median or mode.

I'm a mean sumbitch
