Forget Swine Hispanic Flue™! The real disease to watch out for is Frowny, Sucked-In Lips Syndrome. It seems to be 100% fatal, although there are reports that Eliot Spitzer is fighting for recovery.

I read that the B of A board of directors fired this lip sucker.
I hope he enjoys moving to The Bronx, where apartments are more affordable.

Does Sucked In Lips deserve its own label? You can bet it isn't going away.

Is this what busted guys do instead of crying?

Crying is so much more cleansing.

According to my new fave show "Lie to Me" frowny-sucked-in-lip-face is a sign the person is feeling Shame. Though in this case it's hard to believe. Maybe shame that he was very publicly fired, but not shame for anything he did.

I think we need a special gallery of frowny, suck-in-lip faces.

I think that the frowny-sucked-in-lip-face is only a preliminary symptom of things to come. Next, the face turns red as the hair begins to stand up straight. Beeads of sweat appear upon the forehead. In the final stages, hair a) turns green b) turns grey and c) falls out.

Fellows, were headed for a repeat of that Horrible Hungarian Hyperinflation of 1946, a slow painful Living Death. Just as fast as the Money Supply doubles on a monthly basis next year, and just as sure as MV=PT (Let those of you with Economist Eyes see), we are headed for traumatic events that will cause those facial changes I have described to happen to everybody. The first sign that you will notice will be a new issue of higher denomination bills: $500 bills with William McKinley and $1000 bills with Grover Cleveland. James Madison, Salmon Chase, and Woodrow Wilson will follow, each having that expression of the frowny-sucked-in-lip-face.

Ken Lewis knows what's coming down, that's why he's among the first with the frowny-sucked-in-lip-face. I am already bald.
