Signs of the Times

While driving through our fair city on Saturday, we chanced upon this sign.

I was initially elated for surely it meant that the seminal head-banging mockrock band Spinal Tap was reuniting. Sweet! I just hope Derek Smalls can get back all the bass guitars he sold on eBay.

Then I noticed that the sign was in front of a chiropractor's office, so I am assuming that this is some new fad procedure, like Botox or stomach stapling.

Whatever it is, I'm not interested. Flossing one's teeth is hard enough. But I'm left wondering: how do you get the floss between the vertebrae of your spine? Any insight is welcome...

Using an 18 inch piece wrap the floss around each thumb, loop over your forefinger.....

Someone else has seen this sign - or can there be two? I hope the link does not truncate.

It truncated. How about I use two lines and anyone following it will have to put them together.

Nothing special about it, to be sure.

Spinal Floss has to do with Spinal hygiene. It is a series of exercises etc to keep your vertebrae in optimal health. Of course this is unique to Chiropractors.

Anyone should know that spinal flossing is the best way to keep food particles and ham hocks from getting lodged in your back, especially if you do not have a vulture named Earl to help you.
