Super Colon

The Prevent Cancer Foundation was in my neighborhood today with their giant inflatable colon. It is an awareness raising tool to promote colon screenings.

Many of the people involved in running the event came into my store to get some coffee this morning, so I got to learn all about the giant colon (F.Y.I. there are 9 of these colons around the country and they cost $10,000 a day to rent). I thought this was fun and interesting, so I brought it up with other customers who came in.

One customer came in wearing scrubs, from which I could deduce that he works at the hospital. He had come in immediately after some of the people working at the aforementioned event. I proceeded to engage him in conversation about the event of the day.

I asked, "Are you a member of the colon brigade?"

He had nothing to do with the event.

And I'm pretty sure he's gay.

I think I sexually harassed one of my customers today.

I wouldn't worry too much. I'm sure you've said way more offensive things than this in your life.
