    I swear, you could get Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Seth McFarlane together in a room smoking the best weed, while receiving "to the balls" deep throat blow jobs from the finest Playboy bunnies on the planet, and even they wouldn't have been able to come up with this one. Rep. Scott Randolph was recently reprimanded by several Republicans in his state for his use of the word uterus in a speech he made. Apparently, they were offended that he dared to talk about body parts on a Congress floor.

    Scott Randolph, Florida Lawmaker, Reprimanded For Using The Word 'Uterus'

    I just want to know... many of our Conservative brethren get "offended" when people call this kind of thing stupid. They love to say that we're name calling and insulting. If that's the case, then PLEASE pick a word we can use to properly describe this overtly MORONIC garbage that is going on in our government.

    Hmm, that's funny, because I can think of several other words for body parts that apply to these people. :mischievous:

    Wouldn't raise an eyebrow here.

    Then again we're not governed by hillbillies.

    It is actually the Florida State Legislature where this is happening. Our new Governor is just the worst. But the Republicans have a rule that children must be removed from the viewing gallery if "obscene language or descriptions of the human body" are to be discussed. The Legislature will let big corporations to do what ever they want, but insist on having a hand in women's reproductive organs. One person wants to file her uterus as a corporation so the Legislature will leave her alone.

    This has the feel of another "only in Florida" story. Is it the water?

    I'm actually pretty partial to the 14 letter "S" word myself. However, the censors wouldn't approve and may start yanking panels. Ten thousand points if anyone here is nerdy enough to catch the comic reference.

    .....yet. :eek:

    (Tony Abbott, Bob Katter.....maybe not quite 'hillbillies' but religious ultra-conservative wingnuts. And after Mark Latham's latest rantings, we dodged a bullet there.....)

    The only appropriate reply to something like this is:

    "Oh, for fuck's sake."

    To be fair, we all know how important it is to shield children from factual descriptions of human bodies, don't we? I mean, who knows what would happen if an innocent child were to hear something like: "The protestor was a male, about six-foot-two, with light skin, and brown hair...Hey! Why are there still kids in here? I'm describing a human body! Get them out! They could get ideas! :eek:"

    Sad really. :rolleyes:

    Yes, that's a problem with politicians in general - always trying to put their hands or other body parts in women's reproductive organs. You'd think they'd have learned by now: Stop playing with women's reproductive organs (as well as your own) and focus on actually governing for a change! :tongue:

    I'd love to see her profit/loss statements. And I'm sure the minutes of her meetings would make interesting reading to say the least... :tongue:

    Oh, I'm quite sure you've already thought of my top five - probably even in alphabetical order! :wink:

    This proves, that people rightly say that the US is sexually repressed.
