Originally from New York, Dr Brian King started his “life of comedy” while attending preschool in Tampa, Florida. In his own 4th-grade words “behind our house, were some really big sticker bushes, but one day I fell in the prickers oh boy was I in trouble! I was screaming like crazy!” He continued, “I saw a German shepherd and I started to follow it to the middle of town! My mom and dad went frantic so they drove down town and saw me.” (King, 1981, unpublished manuscript). The rest is pretty boring and poorly written, even by fourth-grader standards.
Dr Brian somehow overcame an untreated case of ADHD and the lure of German shepherds to become a psychologist with a specialization in human sexuality. He has led many research projects, written papers, and presented at national conferences regarding his research on s-e-x. As a quick glance at the classified ads will surely indicate, Dr Brian found few job openings with the title of “sex researcher” and therefore opted for less impressive job titles as “Professor”, “Consultant”, and “French Fry Technician.”
