Note: Since Tommy read this on the air, lots of folks have e mailed us, saying that the original source was probably comedian Steven Wright. Hey, how were we to know? This is e-mail, not the blasted Library of Congress.

Anyway, we'd like you all to repeat after us: "Thanks, Steven, if it was you who wrote this. You sure are one demented and twisted guy."

You know how it is when you go to be the subject of a psychologyexperiment, and nobody else shows up, and you think maybe that'spart of the experiment? I'm like that all the time.
