Uterus: (Yew-Tur-Us), N, A curse word meaning “not a corporation.”

Apparently, the children in the GOP party in Florida are offended that a Democratic state Representative uttered the word “uterus” on the House floor:

During last week’s discussion about a bill that would prohibit governments from deducting union dues from a worker’s paycheck, state Rep. Scott Randolph, D-Orlando, used his time during floor debate to argue that Republicans are against regulations — except when it comes to the little guys, or serves their specific interests.

At one point Randolph suggested that his wife “incorporate her uterus” to stop Republicans from pushing measures that would restrict abortions. Republicans, after all, wouldn’t want to further regulate a Florida business.

Apparently the GOP leadership of the House didn’t like the one-liner.

They told Democrats that Randolph is not to discuss body parts on the House floor.

Hell, how do these men propose to regulate women’s uteri (because they’re happy to do that) if they forbid even speaking about them?

Now, I’m not sure if the Republicans made this stink because Randolph’s truth-telling about their fondness for corporations made them uncomfortable, or they simply think men should not listen to their wives (Randolph got the line from his wife).

But I’m guessing I wouldn’t last long in Florida’s House without censure.
