    No good can come from this.

    Allen needs to do that in private.

    Allen has become an omphaloskepsisite.
    If he’s not careful, he’ll soon be absorbed in himself.

    I hate it when that happens.

    Al S….. One who practices skepsis is a skeptic, unless he’s English, in which case he’s a sceptic….


    So I’d think one who practices omphaloskepsis is an “omphaloskeptic”…
    (or “omphalosceptic”, of course, in the UK.)


    Although…. it’s possible that we could call him an “omphaloskepsisist”


    Ooooh, my head hurts.
    I’m on my way to the Tiki…
    I think we’ll run a special on Fuzzy Navels.

    I see that Betty Ann has buried herself in her book, trying to be as unaware of Allen as possible.


    To that end, she’s going to stop reading at 4:17 pm and pour herself a nice, sweet, but of course, purely medicinal, shot of Rose Hasselburt’s blackberry cordial…


    And until that time, she wishes to contemplate no navels …
    in fact, no body parts at all….
    not even her own…
    and certainly not Allen’s.

    Notice anything other than your chest hair growing Allen..?

    And stop squeezing those spots!
    .
    Omphaloskepsis isn’t so much the contemplation of the navel, as the Chakra that is located in that region.

    I thought he was picking nits… Susan, I’ll have a couple of double somethings, it looks like I’m going to have an interesting day.

    Allen has become caught in an infinite loop of Allen becoming aware of Allen becoming aware of Allen becoming aware of Allen…

    Enlightenment in 3… 2…

    Susan, I’ll have a pitcher of summery Pina Coladas over there in the corner, please.
