During clinical trials held in 1957

healthy thirty year old men

were forcibly removed from their mothers,

encouraged to live with attractive young women.

Nineteen percent exhibited permanent erections,

an extraordinary amount of blood

pooling in their loins. Thirty six percent

became fanatical house cleaners.

Forty five percent died of a broken heart.

The complete results of these trials

can be viewed at the Detroit Free Library.

Refrigerator doors, perennial advisors

shall be effectively removed not randomly abbut.

Cottage cheese should never to be consumed

within a sensible distance of said

symbolic, black imitation leather couch.
