A friend and his wife who were our neighbors in Madison moved to Europe recently to work, and to experience a different cultural outlook. His wife grew up in Slovakia and that is where he now teaches political science. He is now blogging with a European perspective and tackles the latest ‘issue’ over the word “scrotum” and as such deserves a read.
One thought on “The Latest Issue Over The Word ‘Scrotum’”
Scrotum is just the Latin word for ‘bag’ after all. So what’s the fuss?
I wonder what Americans would think of the Japanese picture book for children called “Everything Poops.” It has drawings of all sorts of animals with little piles of their poop so you can see how different it is from other animals’ poop piles [I guess.]. It’s been published here, but I doubt many parents read it to their children at bedtime.
