Indications Of Our Demise

I had a really bad ear infection a while back, so I went to the doctor to get it taken care of. The doctor prescribed antibiotics and after not being able to check my eardrums because of the amount of wax buildup she told me to pick up some Debrox ear drops. Everything went smoothly and the ears are fine now. Why mention this as an indication of our demise, you ask? Well, I am the kind of guy that always reads the labels of medicines and other assorted stuff before I use them. I check the ingredients. When I bought the Debrox drops, I read the box carefully. I thought........should be a no-brainer....ear-drops.......a couple drops in the affected ear and voila!.......the wax loosens up. I was correct, however I was not expecting to read the box and find that some of the ingredients were added for FLAVOR! That's right.....FLAVOR! I don't know about you but I do NOT have taste buds in my ears. I never have and have no intention of developing any. When is the last time somebody said to you "Hey, I have used that Debrox stuff in my ears too.....tastes great!" I could understand if ingredients were added for scent or to hide unwanted scents that come from the other ingredients. Nobody wants odd odors emanating from their ears.......but flavor? I simply do not get it. I don't know if there has been a problem with people buying up ear drops for late night cocktails. I haven't even heard if there are people that taste everything before they put it in their ears, either. My only explanation for this is that, either way, intentional or not, this is another sign of the end. My God, what else could possibly tell me we are doomed?

Oh yeah...... this one should be obvious. It can't be a good thing when even the false prophets are warning you about themselves. Of course these false prophets never admit to being false prophets themselves. That kind of honesty would cause them to lose their brainwashed book club members. These people actually anticipate their demise with great delight. Better yet, they found it to be very profitable to prey upon people at their weakest and most vulnerable. Obviously there is a lot of money know it....I know it....and they know it.

"Knock, Knock"

"Who's There?" "Hello. I'm Prince.....Would you like a free magazine?"

"WOW!, I have never seen a Jehovah's Witness dude in purple high heels before!"

Who would have ever thought we would see the day come that spinach was not good for you? I knew there was a reason I never ate the stuff.
