Laces Optional

So I'm at the gym last night (don't act so surprised. I go on occasion...) flipping through the channels on the mini-TV attached to the treadmill. I stop on CSI Bones. It was Bones. Anyway, I'm half paying attention when I hear one of the characters say physicist. It takes me a moment to process the context-

Character 1 is commenting on Character 2's bad taste in men and backs up his point by listing her previous boyfriends: the man who cut off his brother's head, the cult recruiter, and the physicist who couldn't tie his own shoes.


(10 pts to anyone that can explain to me why the one ex cut off his brother's head...)


  1. It was last night's episode of BONES...

  2. In fact, physicists would probably make pretty good boyfriends/girlfriends, if you consider this blog

  3. See, now, that's SO not fair. Cult recruiters cheat. They wear loafers.
