Contact your local Circumcision Center for the first available Mohel.

Sweden, The Local: “Serial Masturbator Seized”
In the act, I assume?

That is a lot better than being closed for prayers.

Australia, The Age: “Borat Under Psychiatric Care”
What a surprise! I thought he was such a sane individual

What I want to know– do they speak dentalese?

Canada, Toronto Star: “Operation Leaves Woman With Triple Size Breast”
This story leaves me breastless.

Israel, Jerusalem Post: “Trouble In Translation Of Arabic Gay Book”
This is not a very happy story to report.

Australia, Brisbane Times: “Lane Change Caused Cattle Carnage”
Look, you cattle, stay out of the HOV lane– it’s for cars with at least two people.
