Just when I was wondering what I would find to blog about next, I saw this headline in the online Bloomington Pantagraph:
Arizona lawmakers knit fuzzy uteruses
My first thought, of course, was "Oh I hope this article is blog-worthy!" followed shortly thereafter by "Isn't that supposed to be uteri?"
I don't know what the true plural of uterus is. I don't often use the word in it's plural form in a sentence. I will probably look it up in a minute...or, maybe right now...excuse me.
Ok, it can be either one. How boring.
Well, on to the article. It turns out that the lawmakers themselves are not knitting the uteri. No, their unhappy constituents are knitting them for the lawmakers. The constituents are unhappy that the lawmakers are considering legislation that will limit health insurance coverage for birth control. So they are knitting little fuzzy uteri with googly eyes and sending them to the lawmakers with notes about their opinions.
Hurrah for free speech! Talk about spinning a yarn. Insert little pun here about booty and booties.
