One reader suggested that "smoke up our colons" likely did not belong here, due to the absence of a porn connection. I suppose, if you wanted, you could twist it into "front line folks just get fucked", but that sounds to me overly much like that old joke: "Life is like a cock: when it's soft, you just cannot beat it. When it's hard, you're gonna get fucked!"
On the other hand, it is a bit ribald, and therefore maybe not altogether unsuitable. I hope it elicits a few rueful grins, and also leads to more scorn for the tools on The View. (morons). For those that read it, and commented: thank you. I hope you found a grin or two.
