Why "Manly Mastadons/Neo-Cons" are so dumb? Yale study finds that...
... too much testosterone kills brain cells:

That explains a lot. Send a copy of the study to all the Skull & Bones frat boys. (With all the drinking and coke snorting compounding the problem with extra damage to the grey matter, is it any wonder we're in this mess?)

3. Isn't that a well-known side effect ...
of "juicing"?

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=steroid+use+side+e...

Remind me, again, just how Rummy "won" all those wrestling matches back at Princeton?

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=rumsfeld+wrest...

With apologies to the person who first spoofed this (I've put my own stank on it):

Picture it: the lights come up slowly on the Cabinet Room.

Rummy, doing his best J. Edgar Hoover, enters stage left, dressed up like Big Mama Morton, feather boa and all. He proceeds to clamber up on top of the Cabinet Room table, while his audience (the other directors of BushCo.) hoot and holler approvingly.

In the corner, Condi, concert pianist extraordinarie, reprises the role of Taye Diggs' bandleader, grabbing the microphone at the piano to electrify the crowd:

"And now, Ladies and Gentlemen,
The keeper of the codes,
The Sec of GITMO,
The mistress of all that is BushCo.
Matron Mama Rummmy!!!"

The audience cheers wildly, then quiets to a stage whisper, as Big Mama Rummy begins the soft torchsong intro to the Kleptocrat Scat:

"Ask any of the tuhrists in my pen,
They'll tell you I'm the biggest mother ... hen,
I love them all and all of them love me
Because MY system works!
The system called never set them free!

(big drum beat, change-up to the tempo)

Got a little motto
Always sees me through:
'When you're good to Rummy, Rummy's good to you!'
There's a lot of favors we're prepared to do
You do one for BushCo., we'll do one for you!

They say that life is tit for tat
And that's the way I live
So I deserve a lot of tat
For what I've got to give (just ask Halliburton, they'll tell ya)

Don't you know that this hand
Washes that one too
When you're good to Rummy
Rummy's good to you!

If you want my gravy
Pepper my tripe stew
Spice it up for Rummy
He'll get hot for you!

When they pass that basket
Folks put bribes into
You put in for BushCo.
We'll put out for you!

The folks atop the ladder (that's us)
Are the ones the world adores
So boost me up my ladder, kid
We're your be-gaveled whores

Let's all stroke together
LIKE THE PRINCETON CREW
When you're strokin' Rummy
Rummy's strokin' you!!!

So what's the one conclusion
I could bring this number to?

(BIG FINISH, feather boa flapping every which way as Rummy brings home the bacon)

When you're bad to BushCo.
BushCo.'s bombing YOU!!!

Yeah!"

6. Problem with that study, though
is it assumes that these "manly men" actually have an excess of testosterone.

I'd argue that they have too little, and are compensating by acting tough, acting like manly men who drive big trucks and hunt and play sports and shoot guns and talk about war.

7. In my case, I was lucky enough to born with such an
amazingly big brain, that my freakishly high level of testosterone only brought me down to "genius" level.

...

Yeah, that's it.

... oversized head and hairy palms?

LOL.

Is that from the Book of Overcompensations?
