Say What?

All week long there has been a story running in Newsday about a man who died 2 years ago. It seems his wife may or may not have given her permission for scientists to take and experiment on her late husband's brain. She is now suing for 4 million dollars because it seems the geniuses have misplaced the gray matter.
The story is terrible in the first person but quite amusing to the rest of us especially due to the continuing headlines:
MY HUSBAND'S BRAIN IS MISSING
(What woman hasn't said that once in a while?)
HUSBAND'S BRAIN IN LIMBO
(Now she's getting personal!)
My only real question is why would she want it back AFTER 2 YEARS? Perhaps they should search for hers at the same time?

One must wonder just what exact set of brains were removed. The ones found in his head or the brains where most men think from (you must travel a little more south to find them).

Well at least I hope my comment put a much needed smile on your face.

When I first saw the headline about her husband missing his brain I thought it was written by Laura Bush! But then I read further and found it was only 2 years ago that it happened and we all know W lost his many MANY years earlier!
