WHY, TED STRIKER'S GOT MORE GUTS IN HIS LITTLE FINGER THAN MOST OF US HAVE IN OUR LARGE INTESTINE, INCLUDING THE :: Via Leslie comes word that CBS Cares is promoting a laudable goal -- increased awareness of colorectal cancer and its treatment -- through a somewhat surprising means: they're giving away a free colonoscopy in NYC! Two details I'll just quote verbatim:
  • "When the colonoscopy is about to begin, you'll be given drugs which will make you feel like you're at Woodstock... only without the music. If you start to believe that you actually are at Woodstock (for example, Dr. Miskovitz starts to look like Jimi Hendrix or you feel inclined to say "far out!" in response to questions), please report the side effect to Dr. Miskovitz or Jimi Hendrix (whomever you see first) immediately."
  • Thanks is given to the Loews Regency Hotel, which has donated to the winner for three nights "a suite where the winner can prepare for the colonoscopy in luxury and dignity."
Dignity. Always dignity. [Related: Colon Blow cereal.]
