Quote by Ann Landers (ears)
There are some men who turn a deaf ear to reason and good advice, and willfully go wrong for fear of being controlled.

Free earlobes are twice as common in humans as attached lobes.
The ancient Chinese believed that each part of the ear represented a different prospect. The length of the earlobe denoted long life, and its thickness, wealth. As a result, kings and emperors of old China are depicted with extremely long ears (as are many statues of Buddha).
It became fashionable among sailors and explorers to have a single ear pierced in the erroneous belief it improved their vision.
Overheating is a problem for large mammals: the elephant’s ears evolved to stop them boiling to death.

Q tips "Do not insert swab into ear canal. Entering the ear canal could cause injury."
The swab is likely to push wax deeper into the ear canal rather than removing it — even if a little shows up on the cotton.

Fried Dough (Elephant Ears)
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons yeast
Add to the bowl of a bread maker and set on the dough cycle. Or, mix vigorously in a large mixing bowl and let rise until double in bul
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Punch down and knead.
Roll out to about 1/8 inch thick.
Cut into strips 2 ½ inches wide and cut the strips into squares. Or just grab some dough and streach it into the shape of an elephants ear.
Cover and let rest for about 10 minutes.
Using a large fry pan, fill with about three inches of cooking oil. Heat until the temperature of the oil is 360 degrees. If the fat is too cool, the dough will absorb the oil and if the fat is too hot, the dough will brown before it is cooked in the middle.
Lower the dough gently into the cooking oil, two or three pieces at a time. When brown on one side, turn and brown on the other side. Lift from the cooking oil with a fork or tongs and drain on paper towels.
Brush the fried dough with melted butter and sprinkle with powdered or cinnamon sugar.
