What’s he got that I haven’t?

In all the confusion, work, and excitement of the last week, including an NIH study section and a trip to give a talk, you may have thought that I’ve forgotten about a monthly feature that has been ongoing here since the very beginning and that will likely continue as long as (1) this blog exists and (2) Fleet keeps sending me calendars.

If you’re in college, as apparently our intrepid blog mascot and promoter of colon health is, March is usually the month during which your spring break appears. Of course, when I was in college at the University of Michigan, spring break used to be at the ridiculously early time of mid- to late Februrary, but that was just U. of M. (I hope). And what do students do on spring break? Head to Florida or Cancun or someplace warm to hit the beaches, drink beer, and chase the opposite sex. Although you may not know it from his calm, smiley demeanor, our intrepid blog mascot is quite the ladies’ man, and here he is proving it yet again?

What’s he got that I ain’t got, besides a rather large appendage on his head to be used for unmentionable purposes? Oh, and a cape. I’m guessing the cape has something to do with it.

You know, I don’t know what’s more disturbing, EneMan posing nude last month or this.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
