It wasn't the most receptive audience for what I was going to talk about,
so I knew I had to do something to get their attention.  I walked up to the
podium, pulled out a book from my back pocket, and began reading them an
erotic passage from Lady Chatterley's Lover.  When I was done and they were
all convinced I was crazy, I looked up and said, "If you can arouse the
reproductive axis with purely mental processes, why can't you do the same
with the immune system?"
