Your humour reminds me of The Letterbocks section (a mock posting page) from a British comic called 'Viz'. It's humour is absolutely beautiful - here's an example.

"In a recent interview, Pamela Anderson expressed her shock at having her 'Honeymoon video' stolen, and admits she has never seen it herself. Well if she wants to get in touch, she can borrow my copy, just as soon as all my mates have finished watching it."

I advise you get this adult comic, Gabble. It will have you in fits of laughter. ;D

Ohh, I LOVE that comic. I think the diabetic letter was actually in it, between issues 100 and 105 I think.
The hints section is great- things like:

"Don't throw away those disposable razors until I think of something amusing to do with them."

And the "adverts" that appear in it, like:

"Little Ted West: who would believe that behind this cute ursine exterior beats the cold heart of a ruthless mass murderer? Just pay 10.95* and we'll send you one of our 'Bears Of Murder' each month until we run out of murderers to do bears of."
*Not actual price.

I have the annual with that on the front (Bag of slugs 100-105). I was in hysterics with that one.

"Apply for Little Ted West and recieve swastika lunatic Little Ted Manson on approval"

I don't know how Viz gets away with it but I'm so glad it does.  ;D

I'm in the same boat as you Gabble, in the exception that I'm not yet insulin dependent. I have been on Actos since August and Glucotrol for about 2.5 years. I hope I don't get to be insulin diabetic like my dad is right now. They say that a diabetic loses his (or her) taste buds, and maybe more, if he doesn't control his blood sugars. I wish you good luck and better health, and avoid HMO's at all costs. ;)

I liked the cartoon: "Terror on Wasp Planet"- done in the style of a 1950's science-fiction comic.
"He was much like any other space ranger except for one thing- his spaceship had been made to look like Jeremy Spake's f**king face.
'Come on! Let's explore the planet while I trim Jeremy Spake's f**king beard!'" etc.

Yes. That's a good one @sskicker.

Have you read 'Old Mother Teresa - The Scream of The Calcutta Slums'? It's basically about these patients who are trying to get medicine but Mother Teresa likes them to suffer in dignity.

They try different ways of trying to get medicine and Mother Teresa lasoos them together with a crown of thorns at one point.

The story reaches a point where Geri Haliwell comes for a visit, so Teresa polishes her religious 'nick-nacks'. Of course, one of them drops on her toe because it is so slippy from the polish. The last shot shows her with a wad of bandages on her toe and hundreds of pain-killer bottles by her hospital bed.

Just hearing Mother Teresa exclaim 'Christ on a bike' made me convulse with laughter.  ;D
