Hey, I see pink ears, and a white ear, but no black ear? It's obviously a racist conspiracy by the Japanese to keep the black man from a properly fitting set of headphones. Get me Johnny Cochrane! Somebody call the Reverend Al!

We used to feed dried piggy ears to our late Golden Retriever, Prior Lake Jake. That dog would produce drool at the very mention of "want a pig ear ?"

I was talking to my friend, Dick Morris. Did you know he had a thing for toes?!? That's sick, just sick.

Ears, OTOH, that's a different story!
