Medical science is on the brink of a startling new discovery - cursing is actually good for you!

Apparently swearing increases the body's tolerance for pain.

Craig Ferguson is right.  Scientists do these studies just to give the late night comics something to talk about.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/smile.gif

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Exactly like that story!  /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif

I can hear their minds turning now about how "this wouldn't be the first time a man has been led astray by a controlling pussy...cat"

On cats:  He may not be appreciated by some or many folks, but Rush Limbaugh has a good line about the difference between cats and dogs.  Dogs have masters; cats have staff.
I have learned that some pain cannot be healed, but must be endured. I believe our Higher Power will help us to endure and find peace. I loved the boy with the utmost love of which my soul is capable and he is taken from me-yet in the agony of my spirit in surrendering such a treasure, I feel a thousand times richer than if I had never possessed it."
-- William Wordsworth 1812

They needed a study for this?  Next up - "Pair of studies show water is wet; sky blue"

One of my favorite cat quotations:

"In ancient Egypt, cats were worshipped as gods.  Cats have never forgotten this.  They wonder why you have." 

I'm sure Limbaugh has quoted the "cats have staff" line, but he didn't originate it.  I had heard that one in the late 60s or early 70s, long before he even got into radio. 

Later,

Joe

Mike Frezon has never cursed in his life and now I fear for his health.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/frown.gif

I have been trying to cut out cursing, but I now wonder if that's suicidal behavior.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif
