New Bush appointee: Too much sex causes brain damage

In his ongoing quest to break the government, George Bush tapped Dr. Eric Keroack to oversee Title X funding--the only federal program devoted entirely to family planning and reproductive health.

Dr. Keroack told an abstinence leadership conference that sex causes brain damage. Seriously.

According to Dr. K's CracKpot Theory, "positive social interaction" causes the brain to release oxytocin, which enables you to fall in love. But be careful--sex with too many people is literally mind-blowing because you use up all your oxytocin. Then you can never really love anyone.
