"...genitalia so long..."
"...how long is..."
"...how long before..."
"...being on a long..."
"...wasn't nearly enough."

paging Bill O'Neill.  Bill O'Neill, you have an opening on lines 1 through 5.

i'm sure Mr.O will grace us with something witty. in the meantime, this reads like a Monty Python skit involving my hotmail account and spam.  spamspamspamspamspam...

seriously, there are enough recorded comics about to float an all-comedy channel without too much repetition.  we use the Premiere Radio "PrimeCuts" service up here in Portland, and there are sixty seconds worth of 20 different comedians every two weeks.  flesh out thematic comedy sets with some of the "longer" classics, such as Newhart (who recently lamented in TV Guide that his pauses were shortened or eliminated from some of his recorded material, much to his displeasure.) or the always funny Carl Reiner/Mel Brooks "2000 year old man."
