You can be my wingman anytime

Above: The best PowerPoint slide ever made.

Anyone who invokes fighter jets when teaching parasitology is okay in my books. After being educated on a veritable cornucopia of protozoa and worms sticking out of people every which way, causing such dramatic conditions as scrotal elephantiasis and rectal prolapse, I can safely say that I never want to touch a piece of raw meat ever again (or frolic through soil barefoot... or wade through Lake Malawi).

Today's innuendo-laden lecture was as entertaining and politically incorrect as it was inspired and politically charged. Take for instance this crack at the government:

The government today announced it is changing its national symbol to a condom because it more accurately reflects the government's political stance.

A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security while you're actually being screwed.

Of course, I found this to be a very timely criticism given that today marked the day on which a general election was supposed to take place according to Stephen Harper's fixed-date election legislation (introduced for greater government accountability) - a piece of legislation that essentially amounts to trash because not only did we have a legally questionable election last year, but we're also not having the legally mandated one today.

One more piece of gold from today's lecture:

scrotal elephantiasis does not make me crave raw meats less...but rather makes me interested in eating it and one day...growing...big...

and also I sorta wanna walk through Lake Malawi for the same reason lol for a different "experience".

Can you blame a guy for wanting big balls?
