Years ago, Neil Young visits a tattoo and piercing shop. The girl shows him a case of wearable jewelry. “Wow, those are nice,” he says, pointing to a pair of studs. “I could put one in each ear.”

“No, you can’t do that,” she replies.

“Oh, well, what about this thing?” he says, pointing to an ivory bar. “I could put that in my cheek.”

“No, Mr. Young, that wouldn’t be appropriate, either.”

“Man, this is tough,” Neil Young says. “Okay, how about this ring? It could go on the side of my lip.”

“Absolutely not,” says the girl.

Exasperated, Neil Young throws up his hands. “Miss, you’ve got all this jewelry. You tell me I can’t put it in my ears, my cheek, my lip . . .  Why the heck not?”

“Because, Mr. Young,” she replies, “Everybody Knows This is Nose-Wear.”

A big event for seniors happens here every year, where all the nursing homes take part in a math-and-science Olympics. On Sunday afternoon, senior residents from all the different nursing homes arrive by bus to the town recreation center to compete for prizes and bragging rights.  The rules are: you have to be really smart, over 85, wear glasses and a pocket protector, and you can’t have more than nine teeth in your head.

Unfortunately, last year it was embarrassing because one of the buses had engine trouble and had to be towed to the location. It took hours, with everybody standing in the parking lot, waiting for the seniors to arrive.

Finally, after two hours, one parking-lot attendant looked down the road and shouted, “Here it Comes! Here Comes Your Nine-Teeth Nerd-Bus Breakdown.”
