Man indulging in high risk behavior

Prostrate cancer, a form of cancer that occurs in people who spend more than 95% of their time reclining on their couches watching T.V. or playing video games, should not be confused with prostate cancer, a cancer that usually affects men, says the American Medical Association.

According to cancer specialist, Dr. Leo Lebowitz,"Couch potatoes are particularly susceptible to prostrate cancer, no matter what their age or gender, although we have found the disease to also be prevalent among people who spend the majority of their vacation time reclining in chaise lounges on tropical destination beaches."

In an effort to stem the prevalence of the disease, furniture industry officials have decided that warning labels will be attached to all Lazy-boy type chairs and chaise lounges now in production. The label will read, "Over-reclining is hazardous to your health and may cause prostrate cancer in some individuals."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
