Drip, drip, drip, drip: Hillary's incontinence--make that a double!
Like emails, Medusa's physical woes are a gift (/s) that keeps on giving--in this case involuntarily. What is double incontinence you ask? Okay maybe you didn't ask, but I will enlighten you anyway. Double incontinence, when applied to bodily functions, means the lack of control of urine and bowel--it's a twofer.
First, some pictorial evidence suggesting the existence of this malady--which I admit is speculative.
There are many more images available on the Internet--e.g., Google images. No folks, that is not a snake in her britches. This object is seen on many pictures of Medusa's rainbow of pantsuits. Check it out for yourselves.
Now, for all
posterior posterity to see is a sign parents of young children know well--but this one is in an expensive outfit:
Sorry, gentles, there is just no polite way to describe this blob, if we are to maintain any semblance of PC. Even I am at a loss to describe poopy pants in a genteel fashion.
Ewww! How gross! Yeah, but some aspects of homeostasis are plain unpleasant.
A little more about incontinence, which can be confusing. (And if you think this is confusing wait till next essay which give scientific evidence to support my admittedly speculative comments). The following description applies to with bowel or urinary bladder incontinence.
Incontinence simply means lack of control. Getting away from sphincters there is emotional incontinence manifested by inappropriate laughter (or cackling)--or sometimes involuntary crying.
The next bit of definition is not well-understood by many people, unfortunately including physicians.
Incontinence can mean loss of retentive control. For instance, urinary incontinence--but actually that term as usually used only applies to one type of urinary incontinence, and should be better termed "involuntary urination". The other form of urinary incontinence is urinary retention, which means inability to empty the bladder. So think of it like this": Urinary control is kinda like a garden hose. It can be locked in the open position (involuntary urination) or in the closed position (urinary retention).
The same analysis also holds true for bowel control. When the "hose" (lower alimentary canal) is locked in the open position, you have fecal incontinence ("poopy pants"). When the hose is locked in the closed position, you have obstipation (which is a way of saying very, very bad constipation).
Now, as much as I am often fond to say Hillary is full of shit, the actual opposite is true--she can't hold it in.
Another adage, "being full of piss and vinegar" is only partly true. The vinegar is retained but the piss runs down her leg.
I hope you enjoyed your little primer on the nether works of human physiology.
