Redheads Do Not Have More Fun

Anyone familiar with that unpleasant saying, "beat you like a red-headed stepchild"?

Turns out, beating a redhead is even crueler than whalloping your average child, since redheads are now thought to have greater sensitivity to pain.

They may also require higher doses of anesthetics during medical procedures, a tidbit that I'm sure will find its way into the health care debate somehow.
