"Walnuts 'improve sperm health.'"

Some study reported by BBC.

Oh, come on. Why did they look specifically at walnuts? Here's a clue: an old Woman's Day article titled "Foods That Look Like Body Parts They're Good For."

Hey, wait. That says walnuts are good for the brain and clams are good for the testicles! I thought clams were good for the vulva....

There used to be an expression "bearded clam," but it's tragically obsolete. God damn it.

Walnuts are good for your cashews?

They say if you eat Pull-n-Peel Twizzlers before sex they make your spirochetes extra spirochety!

Soooo....the walnut industry sponsored a "study".

It will become a topic on the next episode of Katie Couric's show, and then be forgotten.

Well. At least this is not another one of those "breast" posts.

Or is it?

Grapefruit ... fried eggs ...

What food looks like the DNA double helix? Maybe a candy cane?

We need the Paul Ryan walnuts picture to flesh this out. Ryan could help his Bro Mitt take the oath of office in January. Chief Justice Roberts also must be a walnuts man.

Even Testators swear on their nuts holding their ancestor's seed. The Seed is that all important thing men use to Begat more male people to carry the seed on.

Oops, that's sexist. Somebody tell Darwin.

We all know that procreation of life being a religious conception must now be now illegal unless an equal number of women are doing it.

Actually Black walnuts are a "medicine" for O blood types.

Oops, that's racist.

I am going to abide in shame for a while.

The Doctrine of Signatures is a 16th century medical doctrine based on the belief that God marked plants with his signature so we would know the purpose of the plant. For example, the cut-leaf toothwort (genus Dentaria), whose roots were thought to resemble teeth, was used to treat tooth trouble. Hepatica or liverwort was used to treat liver diseases because someone thought the leaves looked like chicken livers. The roots of bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) produce a red dye, so this plant was thought to cure blood disorders.

Is THAT why the ran the study? Really? Because it sounds like you are applying a linkage between the articl and to the study where there is none.

Hey, wait. That says walnuts are good for the brain and clams are good for the testicles! I thought clams were good for the vulva....
Why couldn't walnuts be good for more than one body part? There doesn't have to be an either or on this.

And the article that says things that are good for you look like the body parts they are good for, many only be superficially true (i.e. does the carrot picture REALLY look that much like an eye)it doesn't negate the fact that those foods may in fact still be good for those body parts.

One night I ate a dozen oysters and the next day shot a load so impressive that I thought I had finally acquired a super power. I was certain there is a connection but I have tried many times and failed to duplicate the success.

That's why the producers of bukkake videos spend a fortune at the seafood store.
