Dude, you are the greatest font of wisdom the world has ever known. With that out of the way I’d like to point out that in your third book, Return of The Straight Dope, you mention a script sent to you by one David English of Somerville, Massachusetts of a supposedly censored SNL skit surrounding the consumption of human placenta. I say supposedly censored because as I read it, it is meant to imply a skit that was never aired. This is not so. Though I do not wish to be accused of starting another urban legend along the same lines as, “That’d be up the butt, Bob,” I can do no less than announce that I have seen the skit in question during a regular airing of the show. Typically I’ve no idea where or when it was, but that it was many years ago (also typical I realize, but nonetheless true.)
