Your nomenclature is lame

((ludicrous limerick challenge))

Right there in the medical compendium

Says old docs called a pussy “pudendum”

But why choose a name

Whose root-word is “shame,”

And denounce the very place that they came from?

    Your last line is an echo of what my mother used to say (to my shock!). "What are you doing? Trying to see where you came from?" Great limerick!

    ya it is weird how they called it that. Sacral 2 to sacral 4 is the pudendal nerve-innervates privates. But ya comes from latin word shame-good one

    This is so good from top to bottom. From the Title to the picture to the five lines that knocked it out of the park. Such a great use of words.

    Ok, not only did you powerfully articulate this in such few syllables… but then you found the perfect picture to use!
