When you're stuffed to the gills with your holiday dinner and jonesing to use the new "adult" markers that you found in your stockings, here's a little political incorrectness to keep you amused and coloring for hours. "Let go of my ears, I know what I'm doing" is a favorite saying of a long time friend and it makes me giggle every single time I hear it.  I mean, really.
