Livers vs. Breasts

liver-mammaryNovember is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, but hold on, that's not all. This month also marks lung cancer, pulmonary hypertension awareness and gastroesophageal reflux disease awareness. January is Thyroid month, February is Heart Disease Awareness, March is Kidney Awareness Month... September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Perhaps last month you noticed a tide of pink products in stores marking National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which has got to win the prize as the best-known affliction -- pink ribbons, pink knives, pink cereal boxes are all supposed to raise money for breast cancer research. Or is it just great marketing? You decide. Woe is October, which brings awareness not just to breasts, but also to liver cancer, diabetes, AIDS, Alzheimer's, epilepsy, and squirrels.

    Is “squirrels” just your euphemism for scrotum? You know, because they both hold nuts?
