This is worth a Facebook share for sure.

Pro tip: never use a fish as a tampon.

Meade said...

In other words: a menstruating bicycle needs a fish like a man needs a slap in the face.

EDH said...

"You smell amazing. What is that?"

"I think it's just sweat."

Bob Boyd said...

Especially a perch.

"In other words: a menstruating bicycle needs a fish like a man needs a slap in the face."

The recommended slapping is, of course, fish-slapping.

Meade said...

Slap sticky.

Bob Boyd said...

"a menstruating bicycle" or menstrual cycle

dbp said...

By pure coincidence, this post appeared right next to an anti-Hillary ad with a scary picture of the woman.

This is actually something that SHOULD be taught in HS health class. All we got were contraceptives and information about STDs. Including some WRONG information, like "You can get STDs from public toilet seats."

Scott M said...

This thread stinks...

Althouse referencing a Monty Python bit...all is well with the world :)

Titus said...

gross.

I saw a bumper sticker in Ptown that said "If little girls are made of sugar and spice, why do they smell like anchovies".

Paglia disagrees about the fishy smell.

I found it Interesting that this article linked to the following story:

Re: I didn’t know what labias should look like,..."

Besides learning that a vulva is not a vagina, women need to learn that "labia" is the plural of "labium," there being no such thing as "labias." Andd once they take the mirror to their dictionary, they can find out that data, strata, errata, and criteria are also plurals.

Had a patient with a lost tampon in med school. One of the few times I've barfed in my medical career.

Michael K said...

I couldn't get the link to work. Was that something about Polish ballet dancers doing the splits ?

Ann Althouse said...

"Paglia disagrees about the fishy smell."

Yeah, there's this way Paglia seems great at the first sentence you happen to read -- like fish on day one -- and by the time you get through to maybe sentence three, it's like that third day of fish and you want it out of here.

Whenever I hit the word "chthonian," I run for fresh air.

Ann Althouse said...

Maybe read out loud with somebody else that you can pause and riff with, but again, you get to the word "chthonian" and you can't say it out loud. No one has ever said that word out loud.

Ann Althouse said...

But I've got to say that when I read that headline "5 Common Vaginal Odors (and Exactly What They Mean)," I was hoping for some deep meaning, something Pagliaesque, not just what disease you might have and how to treat it. That's not my idea of "meaning." I want "MEANING"... as in: What does it all mean? Find the meaning of life.... somehow... through common vaginal odors.

sinz52 said...

They left out one more symptom:

SYMPTOM: Vagina smells like air freshener.

CAUSE: Woman is a moron who is risking irritation or allergy by spraying "feminine hygiene spray" into her vagina.

CURE: There is no known cure for stupidity.

YoungHegelian said...

I want "MEANING"... as in: What does it all mean? Find the meaning of life.... somehow... through common vaginal odors.

When your vagina smells like violets, it signifies an

"....expense of meaning
in a waste of shame..."

Your genitals are now a metonymy for the emptiness of unfullable-ness of human Dasein.

Grab a hand mirror & take a look. "When you stare into the void, the void stares back at you."

Howzzat for "meaning?"

rhhardin said...

Wm. Kerrigan, amazed that feminist Yale published Sexual Personae (example "The reason there's no female Mozart is that there's no female Jack the Ripper"), did say that it badly needed an editor.

Anyway if fishy weren't the normal, how would one account for tuna jokes.

rhhardin said...

You are most sensitive to your own natural odor, and it’s very unlikely that anyone else around you can smell it

You and dogs, according to a former gf.

William said...

Didn't early feminists preach that douches were unnecessary and unnatural? Has that changed? Is this due to the lesbian influence on the feminist movement? I bet lesbians place a high premium on proper feminine hygiene, maybe even higher than men.

FleetUSA said...

Yikes, important health news but I am not sure I needed to know that. One woman I remember smelled like raspberry...I was in heaven.

jr565 said...

Fishy smell is a sign of vaginosis and not just the natural smell? Yikes! A lot of women have vaginosis then.

Or is it an extra fishy smell above and beyond the normal fishy under tone.

jr565 said...

SYMPTOM: Vagina smells like salami.
CAUSE: Woman has been using kilbasi as dildo. Stop doing that.

jr565 said...

"Whenever I hit the word "chthonian," I run for fresh air."
Isn't that one of the ancient gods, along with cthulu, who if you dwell upon too long are driven mad by their unfathomable evil?

Other causes of rotten meat smell - gerbil got stuck.

But remember, circumcision is absolutely necessary for cleanliness issues and males have no right to intact genitals.

If we applied the same ludicrous rationale to women, they wouldn't have a vagina. Disgusting.

But they're protected by law. Hmm...some patriarchy.

Anonymous said...

As long as doctors are getting paid to send foreskins down to the beauty factory to be ground into facial creams for rich old women, I suppose males will continue to have no right to intact bodies.

Women need their beauty products, you know!

Beer!!!

I'll drink to that!

Much more information than we needed.

Fritz said...

I prefer to think that fish smell like vaginas.

Titus said...

This isn't surprising. Lesbians are notorious lovers of everything fish. Go to an acquarium and the place is packed with dykes.

Try a whale watch-can't swing a cat without hitting a diesel.

They abs love eating fish.

Meade said...

OMG — Fritz is a lesbian!

Rhythm and Balls said...

What if it smells like chicken?

But then, doesn't everything supposedly "taste" like chicken?

This is the part where rhardin chimes in.

madAsHell said...

How many animals can you find in a pair of panty hose?

Two calves
Ten little piggies.
....and a fish that nobody has ever found!!

Skeptical Voter said...

Once you're past the smell, Laslo will tell us that you've got it licked.

Titus said...

I have seen dykes in Ptown swooning over porposes. And if a man-a-tee swims by they are orgasmic...I think they are fantasizing about it glazing their cooch.

They are especially inclined to sea bass and sturgeon for some reason.

And if there is a "school" of fish they literally faint.

They like fish more than they like pussy.

lesbians.

tits.

Meade said...

Fish represent babies. Most women want babies. Who can blame them?

What it should smell like:
Hair.

jr565 said...

Talk of pussy and fish and I'm reminded of the Sopranoes dream where Tony realizes big Pussy is the rat because during a fevered dream a fish talks to him and tells him he's the rat. Fish and pussy are always linked.

Maybe sir Spatula is referring to:
"If it smells like cologne, leave it alone"
