I just saw Alan Caulter on an ad during 60 Minutes talking about a colonoscopy sweepstakes. Too funny...

I saw that commercial today too. I need a colonoscopy and don't have insuance so I went to the website to try to sign up. You have to be between the ages of 40 and 70.

I didn't enter.
A: I was scheduled for a c-scope this morning
B: Not open to Canadian residents (that's okay we don't pay out of pocket here)

I'm not sure what the hotel suite would have been like. Is there a really fancy washroom with nice scented candles, a bidet and colon-prep fountain? Really love the idea of this promotion. Didn't Katie Couric have a c-scope on TV and save a few lives too?
