This Is An Actual Thing

Grammy watchers buzzed on Twitter after CBS ran a short teaser for an apparent contest to win a free colonoscopy. It's a real thing and as the teaser implied, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are involved. Wait, does that make a colonoscopy less scary?
If you are the grand prize winner, we will fly you and a companion to New York for three nights in a suite at a luxury hotel with a view of Central Park. And then the main event - you will be driven to the Center for Advanced Digestive Care at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center for a free colonoscopy! NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital - with which we have proudly teamed up for the sweepstakes - is a leader for the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases. Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's participation in this project is especially meaningful - not only because they are major stars, but because Sharon fought a courageous and successful battle against colon cancer.
Jokes aside, props to CBS for a novel idea. Enter here.

NOTE: One must ponder the insanity of a society that has to hold a contest to give away a health test that should be free to every person in the nation.
