DURST: My Hypocamus Is Bigger Than Yours

Hah! If I may repeat myself. Hah! And you womensfolk thought we mens were just stubborn obstinate know-it-alls who couldn't bear the thought of having to consult others, which at times admittedly might have included you.Well, lookie here. According to the University of Ulm: (yes, Ulm. Don't snicker. Its in Germany, which is north of France, if you must know) we have better hypocampuses. More highly evolved. The researchers at this University of Ulm, dare I say the geniuses, have discovered because of this, men are the better navigators, with a much more developed sense of direction. Running the risk of repeating myself. Hah!And there you were swearing you could hear the shrinking of our genitals over the unfolding of every map. Just like we've been saying it all along: guys don't need maps. We are the hypocamus people. Masters of the maze. Slayers of the street. Freeway field commanders. And the remote is our magic wand, so don't even think of touching it.Its a schematics thing. Stimulates the hypocamus, you know. We'd like to explain, but the University of Ulm guys haven't quite finished up their research and we're not really sure we want them to. They might come up with a reason why we can't find the laundry room. To which you may be allowed a small Hah!Will Durst's hypocamus is bigger than yours.
