    I've had it. For years I have come up with sure fire, can't miss business ideas and products that have met a quick death when shared with my wife.

    Recently, I had a restaurant idea that was sure to be a nationwide sensation.. "Liver Shack." A 24 hour, old fashioned diner styled restaurant that features 24 different liver dishes (Liver Fettucini; Liver and eggs; Liver quiche; liver smoothies, etc.

    Well today's brain storm - and her unsupportive, overly critical attitude - just took the damn cake!

    All of us men over 40 can agree that few things are less appreciated, less comfortable, more anxiety producing, more humiliating, than the dreaded annual prostate exam. But I have the solution: Hurley's Prostate self-examination kit. It would come complete with one rubber glove, a small tube of KY, a hand held mirror, and an instruction booklet complete with pictures. Retail would be $9.99. Compare that to the doctor's office experience, and a bill upwards of $100.00!

    Can you believe that my wife thinks it's the stupidest idea I've come up with yet?! So, I've decided to let the wise and thoughtful members of TFF decide the merits of my new invention. Wouldn't each of you pay less than $10.00 to avoid the annual violation of your dignity?

    What say you?

Well the thought of you and your new idea suceeded in getting 2 people in my house ill (which i suppose was the intent to begin with):):eek: Your wife is obviously a saint of a woman and an xcellent judge of new ideas! Tell her about my idea for movie theaters with only reclining chairs and remotes for all patrons. :D

    That's nothing. Wait until you turn 50; your doctor will perscribe a tour, beginning at the distal end of your alimentary canal, that allows you to cruise up the tube in full live action living color. You are the star, and the director, and get to relax, while viewing the interior of your colon while lying comfortably on a cold, hard table, accompanied by the operator and a assistant.

    The best part - your wife can't shoot it down. The worst part, you can look forward to the trip again when you turn 60. :D :D :D

    Tuttle, if you are offering to pay me to examine your prostrate, I would have to say no. I am not qualified or licensed to practice medicine in California.

    Yeah.....but most of them are either in San Francisco or in Provincetown, MA.

    Take your idea, and stick it where the sun don't shine! :D :D :D

    It has merit. But what happens when you need a second opinion? Do you call the neighbors in or what?:D

    I think your idea is somewhat "incomplete"... What provisions would you make for folks like...say...HUCK FINN...who can shove their entire head up there to check things out? People like him don't need no stinking mirror!!!!
    He needs a forhead mounted flashlight !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D
