    “When you were younger, you had long hair, took acid, and were always looking for a hip new joint; but now that you’re older, you long for your hair, take antacids, and are looking for a new hip joint."

    Kudos to orthopedic surgeons! Two new knees, and I can hike again!

    For decades our high school had the worst football team. We graduated football player’s lawyers, accountants, and doctors. Nobody ever beat our golf or tennis teams.

    Dear Thaves, here’s a question: In your two sentences with singular subjects, who are the plural “they” and “their” in the last part of the sentences? Sorry to get all serious on you, but I’m for doing everything possible to avoid sacrificing the logic of English grammar on the altar of political correctness. You could substitute “he or she” and “his or her,” but that would sound way too stilted and nobody talks like that – and certainly not Frank and Ernest. Simple solution: just pluralize each of the subjects to “Athletes’ careers are in decline…” and “When orthopedic surgeons are….” Thanks for keeping Frank and Ernest on my all-time favorites list!
