    Have you ever heard of a rectal airway? It's for people with their heads up their hind ends.

    Which reminds of a joke........

    A very tired nurse walks into a bank, totally
    exhausted after an 18-hour shift. Preparing to write a check,
    she pulls a rectal thermometer out of her purse and tries to
    write with it. When she realizes her mistake, she looks at the
    flabbergasted teller, and without missing a beat,
    she says: 'Well, that's great.... just great......
    ....some a$$hole's got my pen!'
