It used to be I couldn't think of stonehenge without thinking of the scene in Spinal Tap.

Now stonehenge makes me think of a large stone vagina.

Now a University of British Columbia researcher who has investigated the great prehistoric monument for several years has announced he has uncovered its true meaning

Well, that figures. First they blow off my PhD application a couple of years ago, and now this.

PS--it's a vulva, not a vagina. Using the word vagina to stand for all of the female genitalia kinda misses out some important bits, don't you know. [/one of many imprecise-use-of-language related annoyances]

"...turns out they weren't Druid priests at all, just a bunch of Shriners looking for a good time."

I didn't realize the Observer had turned into the Weekly World News.

Actually, Stonehenge is a many-pronged fork set up by an ancient society of gourmets.

Sometimes a henge is just a henge.

I wonder what archaeologists 5,000 years down the road are going to assume about OUR culture when they unearth all of those kidney-shaped swimming pools in the suburbs - D'OH!

For a carpenter, it's nails everywhere. As for a gynaecologist.......
