Would someone please buy me this book for Christmas?

Why? Just because. Perhaps I need to be cloaked in the comfort that this book provides that everyone, indeed, does poop. I always knew it existed, but when the moment in your life arrives where you type "Everyone Poops" in Amazon's search function, it is a realization that you probably should just get some sleep.

You know, one would think that after 98 years, the higher beings that be would maybe try to be nice to the Chicago Cubs for once. Well, apparently they have a sick sense of humor because...

CHICAGO (AP) - Cubs catcher Michael Barrett could miss the rest of the season after he was hit in the groin with a foul tip. Barrett went to the emergency room and an ultrasound showed bleeding inside his scrotum.

An "intrascrotal hematoma" is what they found. Those are two words that should never go together. Seriously, this stuff only happens to the Cubs. And they say there isn't a curse.
