FRAGMENTIA 13: Bite-sized slices of life

WHO KNEW IT WAS THIS EASY?
The proverbial "dirty old man" was arrested in South Florida recently after posing as a doctor and going door to door offering free breast exams. Several women took Philip Winikoff, 76, up on the offer before one got suspicious and called the police. Apparently carrying a black bag and saying you're with a local hospital is all you need do to get some women to doff their blouses. Perhaps those "FBI" t-shirts, that is, the ones which read "Female Body Inspector," may not be such a silly investment after all.

THINGS TO PONDER
Anti-depressants like Prozac often cause "certain sexual side effects" in users, i.e. erectile dysfunction and ejaculatory failure. What could be more of a bummer?

WHAT WEBSTER WON'T TELL YOU
Consternative (singular noun): A politically brain-dead person prone to causing consternation among intelligent people.

UNCONVENTIONAL WISDOM
It's time to retire the overused expression "aid and comfort." One of the most annoying phrases of the war on terror, it just doesn't work. I picture this: "Come sit down, Mr. Terrorist. I'll get you a Band-Aid and a pillow while my wife fixes you some soup. You can bunk with our teenage daughter until you feel better." See? Totally wrong.
