Congrats to “Wives’ Tale” winner, Vincente for his adorable post about his mother:
My mother had me and my brother convinced that she could give us a injection (shot) in the butt with a syringe without using a needle. She would show us the syringe without the needle and with a clever slight of hand put the needle back. She was really good at this and I seldom felt any pain, so the needle-less story held up for years. I didn’t realize this was not possible until my 20s when I went to EMT class and studied IVs and stuff.
Congrats, Vicente – e-mail me over your address & I can mail you your mystery prize!
I cannot help but pimp this guy out, since he is one of THE COOLEST people I’ve met in a long time. Vincente is a great comedian, and he is specifically a master of short-form Improv Comedy. He is a total geek (uh, I met him at a freaking MENSA meeting), a computer genius, and a fellow admirer of Battlestar Galactica. Also, he loves the Steelers, which is allegedly some sort of sports team.
You should add him now and say, “Hi!”: http://www.myspace.com/vezamora
