Putting the “men” back in menstruation, the Moderna way

Consider me easily amused. Hey, it’s either that, or lose my mind while my clawing eyeballs out.  Two choices.  What would you do? I present a news item from one of the largest American newspapers.  The story concerns an apocryphal side effect of one of the COVID-19 vaccines in circulation.  It’s not the story’s subject…

Everyone’s doing the Pfizer Jig!
