“Well, me and Joan been together…oh, ‘most forty years now. Eats a lot, but she’s been good to me, sure enough! Hey, don’t make fun of the uniform… [whispers] Joan kinda’ likes a man-in-uniform, servin’ her dinners, knowwhatImean? [wink]”

The winner is Matthew Garcia (twitter / blog)!

The runner up, simply because I actually laughed out loud when I read it, is Enrique Guttierez (twitter / blog), who offered the following: “Hokey pokey!”

Gentlemen, email me or DM me your mailing addresses, and a limited edition Scienceblogs Thoughtful Animal mug will be on its way.
