    I refuse to believe #16. Yuck.
    As for the injuries by toilets, how do people get injured by a toilet? Actually, forget I asked. I probably don't want to know.

    You get some pretty strange stuff sent to you. I believe 16; I've swallowed far to many bugs for it to be beyond possibility.

    some replies:

    ZS--I think that Derek is responsible. Check out his blog today (1-2-3-I-love-you)! It's all that wine drinking in the loo...see below for #16.

    Undies, yes I do get strange stuff, bless my buds' hearts! What condiments do you use with your bugs? Me I like mustard...

    E-Yah he sure was. According to that list, he musta been hatched? Alfred Hatchcock???

    Wow! I have to say - the umbilical cord one freaked me out the most.

    And it's completely possible to be injured on a toilet. In fact, most of the time, when I walk away safely from the toilet, I consider myself extremely lucky.

    Very cool stuff Bridg.

    1, can't you just see folks entering into toilets in fear and leaving thanking their lucky stars?

    ROFL!! TY for the compliment!

    #21... as for milk, it's generally what they use in films for rain... because you apparently can't see actual water raindrops on film.
