My friend Dan has an unhappy beaver infestation.
"Beavers are eating my trees. Grrr," bemoans Dan on his Facebook page.
Some things just have to be gotten through, so let's get this out of the way first thing: How in the hell did the pudendum end up with the label "beaver?"
Of course I can only speak for myself, but I've never known a pudendum that built a dam or ate a tree. I do not believe the organ resembles a beaver. And although many pudenda have surely been "eager," no one can truly say the same of a beaver. Dr. Doolittle notwithstanding, has anyone ever consulted a beaver?
"Yo beaver, are you eager?"
On to Dan's dilemma. It may irk my old buddy, but I'm sort of rooting for Dan's beavers. That tree is clearly adjacent to some water source and those beavers have a dam to build. Sorry, Dan.
