I've never know anyone to survive running for 5 years straight.

Bring back beanbag chairs and lava lamps, man.

Having sex on your sofa during early October might cause a cancer too
 
2012-05-23 12:54:31 PM  
It does not!

Oh, couch. Sorry, didn't see the 'u'

I'll probably have a heart attack long before I develop cancer. So I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Every time "couch" shows up in a headline, I read it as "crotch." It's no less amusing this time.

This is good news...for colonoscopy enthusiasts.

You know, that's something I never thought about. I don't have a bed and I sleep on my couch every night. I wonder what kinds of farked up shiat I've got now. My couch is about 20 years old though, so older than their samples... maybe worse

My couch or your couch?

how dare you call couches retarded. they aren't flame "retardant" chemicals
they are flame "special".

sofa king cool!!

Just another reason to get the fark off the couch.

I have the solution:
Don't lick your couch.

I dunno, my refrigerator's been running for at least that long, and it's fine.

/Damn, gotta go catch it again

My couch is older than I am. My grandma bought it in the 1960s, and it has the butt-ugly, non-fire-resistant upholstery to match. When I get home tonight, I am going to sit my smug ass down on my hideous couch and not get cancer.

What we need is increased surveillance of these "rogue cells" that get all anarchistic and try to cause terror amongst the innocent cells. We need zero tolerance for this behavior and possibly may to to excise them without warrant.

Can't take any chances when your safety is concerned.

It was on NPR this morning. So I found and article and submitted it.

Don't hate the subby, hate the queue.

I dare say health insurance premiums around here are going to quadruple.

Hate's way too strong a word. It wasn't about the chemicals, it was about tobacco companies creating an entire movement to treat common home furnishings as dangerous inflammables as a way to redirect attention from their own product, amirite?

Unless you're referred to my crotch. It has divine healing powers.

Can't wait for the lawyer commercials.

"Do you or a loved one have cancer?"

"Do you have a couch?"

"Call 1-800-dirt-bag now to speak to a legal representative"

My couch causes cancer (or other health problems) because of all the hours I spend lying on it instead of moving around.
