Have your head examined...

Are you skeptical of modern day psychiatric methods? Is it your considered opinion that Sigmund Freud was a cigar sucking, misogynistic coke fiend? If so, why don’t you join me in my crusade to bring back the once respected but now discredited pseudoscience of phrenology.

Phrenology was an early attempt to assign particular personality traits to specific regions of the brain. I’ve heard that it also had something to do with feeling the bumps on people’s heads, but that might have just been a fetish of whoever invented phrenology.

Anyway, to kick-start this revival I went to see Dr. Leopold Von Nubbin, one of the few practicing phrenologists in the world. I was given an exam and if you click on the image below you can get a closer look at the results:



Well…it turns out my brain isn’t quite what I hoped it would be, but don’t let that discourage you. I’m sure your results will be much better.

Ok, so now people know why I linked you....

This made me laugh out loud multiple times. Man, I need a cigarette.

Man, this is way too brainy for me. Where's my Advil?

Glad to hear it diesel, and thanks for the increase in visitors.


Sorry Dan, all out of Advil...how about a couple of lint covered tic tacs?

Paul "FooDaddy" Brand said...

I've got a really lumpy head, which means that I'm a complex individual with a pronounced interest in dancing squirrels.

Or whatever.

I'll take those Tic-Tacs, DBB!

The Drive-by Blogger said...

Well PFB, that's better than dancing with squirrels...which sounds like a really bad Kevin Costner movie.

I'm afraid mine would look much the same...eeek. Great post...I laughed aloud.

Oh, I found you via mention at my hubby's blog...Tom's Rhetoric

Thanks and welcome cindra, and thanks to Tom for the mention.

My procrastination zone is a little bigger. And I'll have you know my collection of tv theme songs came in handy last week when we played "name that tune." Yeah...who got Simon & Simon on the first beat? That'd be me.

Hey jenna, now I have a case of procrastination zone envy.

Jenna Howard said...

Unfortunately my witty comeback zone blows. But I find a lot of people envy me. Poor bastards.
