I want to say that I wish the new baby well. It's a little girl, named Suri. Let's be nice!
But first, I want to say that in the interim before the only-joking word came out, Christopher Althouse Cohen emailed:
My question is: if you're going to eat the placenta after childbirth, why not eat the foreskin after circumcision?There's more to that email, but out of respect for little Suri, I won't reprint it (though it was quite hilarious).
Why isn't placenta-eating cannibalism? The way biting your cuticles is cannibalism... Or should I say, biting someone else's cuticles?
