Well today on the way to work I noticed a bumper sticker that said "UC Irvine", which means University of California Irvine, but the first thought that popped in my head was Ulcerative Colitis Irvine.
Last week one of my coworkers was talking about his GI bill and the first thing I thought of, even though I'm working on a military installation, was his doctor bill...smh
