Hey, Placenta Head!

While waiting for Mrs. Scheske to go through the labor game, Eric talked with the attendant nurses about birthing stories. None of the stories beat the one about the guy who wanted to take the placenta with him. He had heard it was a cure for baldness. Eric asked how it worked (“You fry it?”). The nurses said, “He planned to wear it on his head.”

It turns out Michigan law prohibits anyone from taking the placenta with them. We're not sure how such an issue got in front of the Michigan House, but we look forward to the court battle when the ACLU finds out about this “denial of fundamental liberty" (that's how the ACLU frames all its issues, so we assume this one would be no different).
