ZAZ: The spider finally crawled out?

It says "pop". That means a weasel was stuck up there, not a spider. Duh.

If this happened in the south US, would he have felt coke in his ears?
2006-02-01 02:55:35 AM  
That's just neat. And now the pope has achieve sainthood.

He should marry that chick that regained her sight when she had another heart attack.
2006-02-01 02:56:37 AM  
Faking it, after all these years...

Yeah, I can't hear much after the mutant war of 2099. What? You? My daughter??? Pregnant out of wedlock with a Norwegian? LA LA LA!!! CAN'T HEAR YOU!!! LA LA LA!!! LOST MY HEARING IN THE WAR!!!
2006-02-01 02:58:14 AM  
Maybe...he just needed to swallow hard these past 15 years.
2006-02-01 03:00:13 AM  
Hey! Who took my pop?

Never mind, you keep it now...
2006-02-01 03:02:00 AM  
Wow, my ears usually pop within a few hours after the plane lands. It would suck to have them stay blocked for 15 years.
2006-02-01 03:02:44 AM  
this makes me jealous

He's a witch.
2006-02-01 03:07:48 AM  
He was faking it.

2006-02-01 03:09:02 AM  

there ya go. cliche complete. en espanol, no less.

\\took french in HS.
2006-02-01 03:14:58 AM  
Did he try a Q-Tip? Q-Tips are AWSOME!
2006-02-01 03:19:06 AM  
Hollywood script and screenwriters all jump for joy. Because this makes the whole "hit on the head and got amnesia and then hit on the head and regained memory" crap more believeable.

/blow to head caused my alcoholism
//waiting for the next sledgehammer
///wife might be up to that
2006-02-01 03:23:21 AM  
does this has something to do with gay sex?

cause i need a job....
2006-02-01 03:29:50 AM  
Did he get punched by a 15 year old girl?
2006-02-01 03:31:44 AM  
And just in time for Popozao too!
2006-02-01 03:37:13 AM  
Pop? I thought it was called BASS.
2006-02-01 03:39:03 AM  
Then again, if I had to listen to "pop", I would probably try to rip off my own ears too.
2006-02-01 03:40:03 AM  
The kid got lucky.
2006-02-01 03:42:23 AM  
He was faking all these years, slipped once on the ski lift, made up some BS story I tells ya. Maybe the guy who wrote "A Million Little Pieces" phones this one in too.
2006-02-01 03:42:24 AM  
I wonder what Britney Spears thinks about this.
2006-02-01 03:45:44 AM  
Okay, I really don't, but I wouldn't mind if she flashed me her titties.
2006-02-01 03:47:03 AM  
The army taught him to ski?
2006-02-01 03:47:26 AM  
...can you hear me now?


/meh, g'nuthin'

coachwdb: Did he try a Q-Tip? Q-Tips are AWSOME!

ear candles are cooler. Way way cooler.
2006-02-01 03:58:36 AM  

I tried those stupid ear candles once. Never again. I had to walk around with my head all tilted and shiat to see where I was going. And my girlfriend (who usually loves candles) thought I was retarded.
2006-02-01 04:15:37 AM  
We know nothing about the human body

/breast milk for pink eye?
//and burn some witches!
2006-02-01 04:20:43 AM  
I know a couple things about MY body.

The last couple times I burned a witch, it didn't help with my gout. But I felt as if my digestion was working better.

/kidding of course
//witches are known for their sense of humor
///and for not floating
2006-02-01 04:21:57 AM  
I can hear! And I can see! But ... who am I?

/too obscure?
2006-02-01 04:24:23 AM  
cleaning out your ears with q-tips is the wickedest feeling.
It's like someone running a finger down your back.
2006-02-01 04:24:54 AM  

Did you do both ears??

I tried them out once, but I had to stop on the second ear because I was ridiculously uncomfortable and the ear being squished against the table was really hurting.
2006-02-01 04:28:06 AM  

Sounds like Donovan's Brain. Or one of the hollywood rip-offs of it.
2006-02-01 04:35:20 AM  


Sorry, had to do that. The whole "the candle draws the earwax out of the ear" physics thing led me to question the whole concept.

Using the same logic, a flamethrower attached to someone's butt would cure chronic constipation. But we don't see THAT on the infomercials, do we.

Off to bed for MEEEE!

/wow, that gollum scream hurt my pretend ears
//didn't know I had pretend ears until this point
///not off my meds. Might need some, though.

"The doctors can't explain anything and he's starting to believe in miracles I think."

No, the doctors are just hoping you don't sue for 15 years of not being able to diagnose severely clogged eustachian tubes...

2006-02-01 05:18:00 AM  
you all say he was faking it, well take this from one who is almost completely deaf, no one in their right mind would fake being deaf.
2006-02-01 05:36:27 AM  
I was more impressed that a 72 year old bloke goes skiing.
2006-02-01 05:44:47 AM  
15 years? Boy, is he going to be disappointed to find out what's coming out of the speakers during those Shakira, Jessica Simpson and country music videos.
2006-02-01 06:25:27 AM  
I think he needs some PoPoZao!
2006-02-01 06:36:13 AM  
"But he added that the army had also taught him to ski which was a very fortunate thing."

Sounds like a fun Army.
