Conversation chez Cacciaguida: famous drug tests

CACCIAGUIDA: It's so fall-like out, Marion Jones tested positive for cider. [Hat-tip: Letterman]

ELINOR: Who's Marion Jones?

CACCIAGUIDA: Olympic star; had to turn in her medals 'cause she tested positive for something.

ELINOR: When you said "Marion," I thought you said Marion Barry. Lord knows what he's tested positive for.

CACCIAGUIDA: He's the control.

ELINOR: Why did they used to use rabbits for pregnancy tests?

CACCIAGUIDA: There were too many of them.

ELINOR: You'd think they'd have no trouble standing up to pregnancy hormones.
