In a Nutshell

No pun intended guys, but your prostate is encased in a shell-like casing and once cancer gets outside of it, it’s all over but the crying. As we speak, I know someone who is suffering big time because they didn’t get a blood test and physical when they should have.
If you are over forty-five and have not had a blood test to see what your PSA (an enzyme that if elevated can indicate prostate cancer) level is, then you are playing Russian roulette. Why, you might ask? Because most men will develop prostate cancer later in their lifetime and it can and will kill you in an ugly way, that’s why!

I know, it is a slow growing cancer and we will probably die of something else first. That reasoning is pure, unadulterated bull poop. Yes, it is slow growing – at first. Once it gets out of the case, it can and will become an aggressive monster attacking lungs and bones. This is when you will wish the pretty nurse had taken those blood tests when you were younger.

I have a brother-in-law who lives in Louisiana (you know who you are), and I know he hasn’t had the test. For God’s sake, brother, you are over fifty. Don’t wait until it’s too late and your family has to watch you die a horrible death. It is not fair to them, but most of all, it is not fair to you. Fishing really gets good when you are older and healthy enough to catch the big ones

For all you mothers, wives, girlfriends, sons and daughters who know your loved ones have not taken the blood test, beat up on them long and hard. Accept no excuses, and whip on your man until he bleeds. Get him to a doctor by hook or by crook! I know you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Remember the carrot and the stick cartoons?

Well, get a fishing pole and tie a Budweiser to the string. Then lead him to the doctor…it will really work if you tie a six-pack and a centerfold to the string!

I’m just saying,
