How is it funny? It's.....confusing. What do tampons have to do with abortion? Shouldn't she be wearing like syringe earrings or forcep earrings?

--Honey, you got the wrong tampons.

--But those are the ones I always get.

--I know but I need something big and showy for TV

:giggle1:


Now if she had worn red rags, I would have changed my position, but since she wore tampons, not so much #missedopportunities

It's probably related to recent banning of tampons from the Texas senate building or wherever it was.

Yes, tampons are no longer allowed in that building. I heard Texas is gonna ban tampons from all state buildings.

Yes, because women were planning on throwing tampons to protest the abortion bill. So the question still stands - what do tampons have to do with abortion?

Yes, I know the story.

To who? To you or to the people using them to protest? I suspect these are two very different things.

At the risk of sounding crude, I think she's just trying to tell the world she's one big c***

Well, you want something noticeable and controversial and petrified fetuses would have been over the top. She could have gone with vaginal wands, but with MSNBC's ratings they probably could only afford the tampons. Besides, with most men a tampon is pretty much identifiable with the evil vagina monster.

It is good to see MSNBC practicing the art of trolling. If most people are ignoring you make sure someone else cannot help but get your message into their view.
