    That piece of wire behind his ear resembles a piratical earring. Arrr!

      Yes, that’s one of the major symptoms of no-heart disease.

      People who say that there’s no problem, or that any problem is caused by “health nuts” (as RL has done) or that the real danger is socialist death panels who will come to take away our Medicare … those guys there’s no dealing with.
