    I guess that’s why they call it the blues.

    One of my favorite songs that deals with apologies is John Denver’s “I’m Sorry.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GE4AU9KQ_BI

    I was going to say….how is it that she can talk with no mouth- then I looked back and realised….Pastis hardly ever draws mouths on anybody. Except Pig, when he’s excited.

    I bet this shows up at CIDU.

    The definition of otolaryngology doesn’t help: the study of diseases of the ear and throat. Maybe it was Goat’s word at a spelling bee?

    Goat is too sagacious, and not nearly musical enough. It is his fate.

    Too hilarious, I’m an Otolaryngologist, son of an Otolaryngologist. In the 70’s dad thought the US was ready , if people know what an Orthopedist and and Pediatrician and an Ophthalmologist is , they can certainly learn Otolaryngology. Wrong! had to change the name of the practice from Local Otolaryngology to Local ENT a few years ago. The people answering the on call line at night, who then paged us, couldn’t say it either. They would answer the phone " Local Otolalogology " or something equally embarrassing. Sometime in the 70’s my mom was in Canada getting her hair done and the stylist asked what her husband does, mom replied " he’s and ear nose and throat doctor" to which the stylist replied " up here we call them Otolaryngologists".

    It’s disturbing what insidious cultists Otolaryngologists are. They’re always trying to get inside your head.

    When I was working for Voc Rehab I realized that I had been mispronouncing “ophthalmologist.” It’s not “OP-thal-mahl-oh-jist,” it’s “AHFF-thal-mahl-oh-jist.” When people pronounce it wrong (which nearly everyone does), I just grit my teeth and think, “Nnng!”

    The dictionary I Googled allowed the “OP” version, but the “AHFF” version was preferred. The “OP,” of course, reflects usage, not correctness.
