"There are certain things I am willing to do at home to save money. For example, I ask my wife to cut my hair. Something I won't do is reach into my cats[sic] asshole and wring out its butt juice. I'm willing to pay a professional for that."
- Penny Arcade
D and I are familiar with this phenomenon; Bayla, the older of our two cats, has had this procedure done several times at the vet, and we are very happy to pay for this service. Bayla also suffers at least one chronic condition which has been mentioned on House, but that's probably unrelated. I only mention it because it's fun to say "eosinophilic granuloma."
