    I’ve Eastern European friends who were college students during the bad old Communist days. They report that they’d take vodka up the rear because it worked faster and more thoroughly than drinking it and a single bottle would be plenty for 20 or more.

    Just because you or I wouldn’t do it, doesn’t mean that a) it can’t be done, and b) isn’t effective!

    But alas, Eastern European Communists have been “taking it up the rear” for quite some time.

    . . . the more things change, the more they stay the same.
