    Family, when you see me on the couch in a vegetative state, take the pipe out of my hand and plug in the fMRI before you pronounce me dead.

    Can you be more specific?  “Canadian in vegetative state” casts too wide a net.

    I communicated with my vegetables once.  I caught my asparagus bragging to my mushrooms, “Don’t fucking worry baby, I’m gonna make his piss offend everybody at this party.”

      @Scott_Chandwater  I invented a cure for gay. It involves Kate Upton titty fucking you until you jizz 40 times. It costs 500 million dollars.
