Someone could get hurt.)”— from the column “Moms get dumber as teens age”“The idea of drinking a bovine pee cola gives a whole new meaning to those old Peter Frampton lyrics, ‘I’m in you, urine me.’ At least I think that’s how they went. Plus, it makes you give those Red Bull ingredients a second glance.”—from the column “Try an ice cold Cow-ca Cola”“Guys, at this point have likely picked up on the more obvious (to guys) mystery in this whole incident: Where does a naked woman put $40,000 in jewelry...?(Pause while we all ponder this.)…and if this man was paying $100 per hour to have a naked woman in his house, why wasn’t he watching her? I imagine to some, this would seem wasteful.”— from the column “Nude maid strips man of self respect”What readers are saying …“Kelly Kazek has a most delightful writing style and a wry sense of humor!” — Jim G., Phoenix, Arizona“I’ve never written to a newspaper colunist before but I had to write to tell you how much I enjoyed your column.

Whiting, New Jersey“If a new column’s not there by Monday, I start to get the shakes.” — Michael P., Milledgeville, Ga.
