Last week CNN reported that the last 10 years has been really hard on Charles “Chick” Lennon.
Lennon could no longer hug people, ride a bike, swim or wear bathing trunks due to a faulty penile implant which left him with more wood than a PGA golfer.
Charles “Chick” Lennon, 68, received the steel and plastic implant in 1996, about two years before Viagra went on the market. The Dura-II is designed to allow impotent men to position the penis upward for sex, then lower it.
But Lennon could not position his penis downward.
The good news is that Lennon has been awarded $400,000 for his suffering. Unfortunately, due to heart problems Lennon cannot have the implant removed.
Thanks to Donald Burleson for sending this on to me.

At the request of a reader I have written up the lyrics (as best I can) to the cubicle song parody of James Blunt’s song “You’re Beautiful”.
Listen to the song (complements of MorningSidekick.com).
Lyrics by: Morning Sidekick
Performed by: Jym Britton
Parody on “You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt
My job is stupid my day’s a bore,
Inside this office from eight to four
Nothin’ ever happens my life is pretty bland,
Pretending that I’m working, pray I don’t get canned.
My Cubicle, My cubicle
Itâ€™s One of Sixty two
Itâ€™s my small space in a crowded place
Just a six-by-six foot booth
And I hate it thatâ€™s the truth
Well, I give a sigh as the boss walks by,
no one ever talks to me or looks me in the eye.
And I really should work but instead I just sit here and surf the Internet.
In My Cubicle, My cubicle
It doesn’t have a view.
Itâ€™s my small space in a crowded place
I sit in solitude.
And sometimes I sit here nude.
This is the box to one of my favorite desk toys, the “Happy Drinking Bird”. These retro toys are available in some independent science stores or online through Edmund Scientific.
The drinking bird is the unofficial mascot of Life After Coffee (The Luwak is the official mascot) however its packaging seems just a little uncertain on the topic of flammability.
The image below has not been edited other than to add the red underline.
Given that they used to fill these with Freon the methelene chloride must be an improvement, regardless of flammability.

Now that I’m back in the world of the working iPod I’ve been going through podcasts almost as fast as gas money. Here are a couple of my favorites thus far.
Marc Gunn’s Irish & Celtic Music Podcast has some of the best Irish and Celtic music I’ve heard. Ranging from the very traditional right up to edgy punk-fusion all the music is high quality Irish and Celtic music. Marc manages to get two or three podcasts out a month and is always great about giving artist and album information. Get it at iTunes.
TransAtlantic Acoustic Show highlights a larger variety of modern acoustic music. Hosts jill no jack of the US and Sam Salter of the UK offer great info and background on the artists. Sam can be a little hard to understand (because of his voice, not his accent) but it’s nothing a little extra volume won’t fix. These come out almost every week. Get it at iTunes.
Both of these podcasts are free, and remember you don’t need an iPod to enjoy podcasts!
I’m going to start keeping a list of my favorite podcasts in my links in my sidebar, so as I find more good podcasts I’ll post them there.
