Hey lady...

There's a movement in California to ban the use of children as medical translators. The example case given in the article is a Hmong Laotian woman who was misdiagnosed because her 12-year old son was unable to properly translate the full conversation between his mother and the doctor. After all, how many 12-year olds understand what a prolapsed uterus is?

Which of course brings us to the next question: How does a woman suffer a prolapsed uterus? Why, by having fourteen children! I must quote the former sage, Dennis Miller, who once said, "For Christ's sake, lady! It's a vagina, not a clown car!"
