The International Commission on Scientific Studying has released an alarming new study on humankind, and it confirms some of my worst fears.
"After years of research involving tens of thousands of human beings, lab rats, monkeys and flying squirrels, we have reached the conclusion that everything is bad for you," Dr. Ned Nerdstein announced at yesterday's summit in the Georgia resort town of Rupert. "We are advising our fellow humans and residents of Oklahoma to avoid everything and replace everything with something else in their daily lives."
Dr. Nerdstein said that everything has been linked to higher rates of cancer, diabetes, liver lesions, lip swelling, hair loss, toenail fungus, parvo and itchy knuckles. Oh, and premature death, as well as postmature death.
Scientists are urging everyone to not to eat everything, drink everything, breathe everything, listen to everything or stare at everything directly with the eyes. Scientists said that the only safe everything is a non-everything.

Mike Huckabee said everything is God's revenge for legalizing gay marriage. Lindsey Graham said he would bomb everything. Chris Christie said he would eat everything. Ted Cruz said he didn't believe in everything as it comes from the same kinds of scientists who invented such bogus things as climate change and facts.

In Washington, President Obama made the following statement in the Lily Garden: "It has come to my attention that everything is a major concern. This morning I met with Republican members of Congress to seek a bipartisan solution to everything, but after asking me how I got into the building or for a refill, they let me know they are too busy handling nothing to get bogged down in everything.
