Problem/Solution/Com- plication

Problem: "Hey," your brother says, "you really need to clean your ears. Looks like you got cheddar in there."

Solution: You buy an ear canal irrigation system. Obviously you're too high-class for Q-tips. The warm water flushes out the wax and suddenly you can understand what people say, and it's not always nice.

Complication: You wake up from a dream about a military march because there's something tickling your ear. Then you remember your brother bragging about inventing the first centipede syringe. At the time, you thought you had misunderstood -- due to the ear wax.

The only thing worse in your ear than a centipede is a cats tongue.

Yeah, jorg, I can imagine the awful adrenaline of that moment. But that cat would learn awfully fast that that is not an acceptable thing to do.

Well, sybil, I'm sorry about that. You might try wearing earmuffs for the next couple nights.

cats are smarter than caterpillars even though they are missing the erpillar. More letters in your designation doesn't make you smarter.
