Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Too Long for Twittering

So, for everybody else who carries their cell phone in their front pocket, do you also get an internal chuckle by saying, "Excuse me, my crotch seems to be ringing. I better answer it." Or is it just me and my sometimes juvenal sense of humor?

From an old Dilbert comic:

Dilbert, "Every so often, I get this vibration feeling over on my hip."

Psychiatrist, "It's called phantom pager syndrome. There's no cure for it."

Dilbert, "I don't want to cure it. I want to relocate it."

Matt, ha!

There was an opener in an old show called "Doctor, Doctor," with the world's smallest cell phone. The character puts the phone in his pocket and the salesman calls it. The doctor then does a little dance, including putting his tongue out the side of his mouth. Then he stands up. "What happened?"

"I hung up."

The doctor jumps across the exam table and grabs the salesman by the collar, "Call. Me. Again."
