Answer Key

1.  E) There's no such thing as a hot cup of coffee

2.  C)  He's married, not dead; there's always hope.  Pour soul.

3.  Although man has made many great contributions to humanity, there have been constant threats to long-term survival, such as: maternal apron strings, impaired cognitive function due to deficient or misplaced brains, and wives.  The most persistent threat, however, has been Offspringis Sphinctercombustovirus.  As men have developed biological defenses against the virus, it has quickly adapted to circumnavigate vaccines and natural immunities.  “Each new generation is more dangerous than the next,” says old man sitting on the front porch, disparaging the way young people talk nowadays. 

Infected individuals many show some or all of the following symptoms:  thinning/loss of hair, weight gain, gastroenterological complications (in which excess gas and stomach acid can cause serious damage to the person and those around him), and increased fatigue.  As the virus progresses, it can manifest itself in the form of severe mental disturbances.  Infected men at advanced stages will start mumbling aloud to no one, speaking in broken foreign languages (e.g., fricking, ga-da-arnish, craaaaaa-nk-onastick), and even exhibit bouts of hysteria usually resulting in poorly-timed tickle fights.

Known treatments at this time include creating a quiet, dark space in which the men can retreat to and feel safe, increasing their liquid grain intake, and never, ever throwing away their favorite t-shirts.

All damage wrecked from this horrifying illness is compounded by the presence of daughters.
