Go Here and You'll Never Make It to the R 'n' R Hall of Fame

It seems that The History of Contraception Museum is the latest addition to the Dittrick Medical History Center at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. True, entrance is only permitted occasionally, but it is quite a place! The AP reports: "More than 650 items make up what is described as the only collection of its kind in the world, representing the often creative practices and products devised in the hope of preventing unwanted pregnancies." One of the most creative displays, titled "Joey Prays Real Hard and Raids the Kitchen," is sponsored by Saran Wrap.

The AP story continues: "Where items are not available for show, words explain. In ancient Egypt, crocodile dung was employed as a suppository before intercourse. Beaver-testicle tea was brewed by Canadian women, interested in prevention." Two thoughts come to mind: 1) Crocdungbung certainly would keep me from having intercourse, so that's one darn good contraceptive; and, 2) now I understand the term tea-bagging.

A press release from the White House honoring the museum's opening included this quote from President Bush, "Speaking for both myself and those devoted to morality who overwhelmingly voted me into office, I am pleased there is a place that will commemorate contraception, which will soon be a thing only for museums. I also am proposing a law that no child under 18 can visit the museum without parental notification."

One or two teabags? And do you dress right or left?

Why no mention of neutering? Worked for me. And probably explains my incomprehension of "tea-bagging." Just remember, as mom says: "Woof" means "woof."
