This has to be the word-of-the-year.

I heard it today on WCBS newsradio. Scientists are studying "coital

amnesia"--people who forget while having sex, or after sex. Often, this

involves forgetting the partner's name, but sometimes the subjects forget


BILL CLINTON: Everything?

I tried tracing the phrase on Infotrax and the web, but it's not there

yet. A few good Leno and Letterman jokes and a well-distributed wire story

can do the trick.

MARV ALBERT: They forget everything?

One of the sufferers didn't even know who he was.

RUDY GIULIANI: I don't recall ever having an affair with my press secretary,

whatever her name is!

Gotta help out science. How do you volunteer for these studies?
