Things I Should Be Surprised To Hear Larry King Say, #3.

Heard this one the other night, asked of Surgeon General Dr. Sanjay Gupta who was discussing hypothermia in relation to the water landing in New York last week:

In Which This Gave Me A Much Needed Laugh.

After a couple of days feeling pretty down, this made me laugh pretty hard when I watched it Saturday night — the whole show did, actually, but this was just the right combination of hilarious, weird and awkward that I needed:
