I didn't see any smiling medical students who matched at the prestigious Taco Tech residency program in El Paso. And for the record how many high-quality and high-scoring Taco Tech Medical Students will be staying in El Paso?- I'm willing to bet that this year be the same as all the rest - less than 5 - & the El Paso taxpayers will once again be paying for the World's Greatest Mecca for Foreign Medical Graduate training at good old UMC and now El Paso Children's Hospital!

None of the graduates majored in proctology because I saw the program. There were some urologists but they are not of benefit to me since I had a vasectomy last year. I fouled up with that one because I didn't know O was going to decree that all birth control would be free henceforth.

It's too bad free vasectomies weren't available for your dad!

I know it! We had to go into hock to pay for his but we had no choice because it had to be done. If only he had taken that step before he knocked up half the women in our neighborhood, I might still have an inheritance. As it is, his entire estate is tied up in probate and scheduled to be given to all the bastards he fathered once that is sorted out. I didn't want to take the chance that it could happen to me which is why I was snipped.
