In poor taste...

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month (yea, I didn't know either) and the Oncology Department of the company where I work sent the following invitation out to everyone here at Head Office:

"We would like to sensitize you on this terrible disease which claimed the life of more than 8,500 Canadians in 2007.

Meet us at lunch at the cafeteria for the official activities launching."


Now, maybe it's just me, but I'm thinking that the CAFETERIA is probably not the best place to have activities* for the launch of COLORECTAL CANCER Awareness Month... lest we forget that people EAT in the Cafeteria.

* My sphincter just slams shut at the sheer vagueness of the term 'activities' in relation to Colorectal Cancer Awareness...

Aren't colorectal activities fun no matter where they take place?

I never said they weren't fun.

Call me old fashioned... I just like to separate Cafeterias and Colorectal Awareness Activities...

That is so freakin' FUNNY!
Colorectal cancer checks in the cafeteria, right next to the meatloaf!
Might as well throw in a prostate check while they're at it.

My doctor is a tiny little Chinese woman, but man, does she ever have big, fat fingers!
