I first saw that quote in a Spider Robinson book; it's no doubt older than that. But in that spirit, I'll share my recent experience, now that it is, ahem, behind me. If nothing else, this should stand out from that pile of Fill-In The-Blank quizzes.
Come to think of it, maybe I should submit it to FITB. Heaven knows, I just had my blank filled in.
Never mind that. Where was I? Oh yeah. With the exception of a fun final question, don't you worry. I'm going to play this straight. Nice and clinical. And all the really gross and disgusting stuff has been relegated to the Director's Cut of this quiz, available on DVD this coming March.
But seriously, doctors recommend this procedure, and now that I've survived it, maybe I can pass an insight or two to you. Thanks go out to the National Institute of Health, whose document http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/colonpolyps_ez/index.htm was sent home with me, from which I pilfered some of this information. I have a feeling they won't mind too much.
Oh, and that picture there? Moi.
