I caught a cold--too much birthday fun this week for sure --and thus no post yesterday.
Too stuffed up to go see Casino Royale's opening weekend, we stayed in and watched SNL. During the fake news segment there was a mention of sperm allergies on the rise [that's my pun not theirs; please excuse it]. The joke was something like, "If you're allergic to peanuts, don't sleep with this guy", they then showed a picture of Mr. Peanut, with a censored strip over his crotch. Yeah kinda lame--reminds me of the stupid Jimmy Carter/peanut jokes in the 70s. Did I just date myself?
Anyway, latex allergies I've heard of, Bo mentions her severe reactions in her blog, but sperm allergies? That's new and scary. And the joke was silly to be sure, but it's so intriguing how and when allergies make it into mainstream news, moreso mainstream late night comedy shows.
