I lol'd. And then looked up a bunch of cancer stuff to see if I should go get checked or something. Thanks for the buzzkill.

Um, you do realize that only men get checked for prostate cancer, right?

Not really, it has no connotation to the whole prostate cancer thing... Especially since men have nowhere for the two fingers there... Besides, 'funny' usually has at least some subtlety involved.

This evokes the very definition of nervous laughter.

Am I a buzzkill for pointing out that they generally don't do that anymore?

/they've had a blood test for a number of years. The UFIA isn't nearly as accurate.

Yes, but if the PSA (blood test) goes up, you get further testing, including a prostate massage.

I would say "BJ's for the Boat People" was a better fundraiser. But that was a glorious giveaway. Thanks, subby.

The Iron Pigs were also in the news last week for paying for a guy's funeral as part of a promotional giveaway. I'm on my iPad so I can't make this clickable:

That's pretty good.  But I'm pretty sure the Astros are pulling people from the stands to hit seventh all this month.

The old shop teacher from my high school invented/patented and still produces those foam fingers, so I'm getting a kick out of these . . . .

This is the second year the 'Pigs have done this foam finger.  Gotta admit, they come up with some good ones around here.  Love going to their games!
