Oh my gosh! You've got to stop this - I'm busting a gut chortling. My husband thinks I'm crazy - staring at a computer, cracking up...

I like the title - puns for EDUCATED minds - that made me feel a little better about the whole thing.

My favorite? #21 - one carrion - I'm a sucker for a little "dark humor!"
