    I don’t get it, but then, I don’t get a lot of things.

    You’ve got me wondering now Mary – is the use of “male member” more of a Brit thing?

    Well, we use it here too, but not that commonly. I thought it was funny, but in truth, I read right over “member” without thinking that way the first time.

    I thought it was funny, but I’m a guy.

    I still laugh at Larry, Moe, and Curly.

    It’s amusing, but I still prefer the BBC News headline.
