My what a big pink Hummer you have

Dr. Freud! Dr. Freud! Paging Dr. Freud!

And while we’re on the topic of obvious, sophomoric humor: Wanko — the yum dog ice-cream from Japan. “When I suck onto my favorite flavored Popsicle, my mutts stare at me with begging eyes……..for may just one slurp! And why not, a man’s best friend should also get an icy-deal to beat the sizzling summer heat. People in Japan can indulge their pets to this dog-flavored ice-cream called Wanko.” Oh behave!

Just in case this isn’t enough giggling over names that mean one thing in English and another in whatever other language, a caption from a picture: “A four-day old baby hippopotamus hides under its 9-year-old mother Porn at Chiang Mai night safari zoo in Chiang Mai province, northern Thailand, Sunday, Aug. 5, 2007.” What’s the kid’s name? Star? BTW, regardless of their names both are incredibly cute.

Dr. Freud, call for you on line 1.

"It takes a big man to swing a pink bat in a major league game." — Howard Smith, senior vice president for licensing for Major League Baseball.

Major League Baseball granted special permission for players to use baby pink bats on Mother's Day as part of a weeklong program to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Next best quote: "The thought of these big macho men, swinging pink bats to help women with breast cancer … what a novel idea," said Louisville Slugger president John Hillerich.

Dr. FREUD, STAT!
