This Monday’s overdue open thread is hosted by my sweet Three Wolf Moon shirt (Note: Read the product reviews). What will the powers of my favorite internet meme do for maternity care in the U.S. and beyond?

Yes! My holiday shopping is DONE! Thank you, Jill-- you are truly the gift that keeps on giving.

"I went from supine to lupine in less than one second." Ms. Swan, you rock.

In other news, I did doula training last week with Debra Pascali-Bonaro-- awesome. I am now seeking doula clients in NYC, y'all! I will wear this t-shirt and your birth will kick ass!

Should I decide to try for another baby (2 is enough for the moment) I will totally be buying this shirt for my HBA2C, by golly, I can't fail! LOL

Supine to Lupine is awesome, Ms. Swan.

Get your rebozos now - available in sizes 3, 6, 9, 12 or 15 Wolves Moon.

We offer a home-like atmosphere where you can labor in a Three Wolf Moon gown.

In the Netherlands, 90% of women give birth while wearing Three Wolf Moon t-shirts, and their rate of triplets is three times ours.

Find it on etsy - Three Wolf Boob nursing tops with upper left flap panel - having three wolves howl at your boob is shown to boost supply.

I found this prose on a birch bark tablet in a recent archeological dig in Plymouth MA where the Wampanoag once lived and birthed their babies:

"One wolf cries for all the food that will be eliminated from the normal labor suite many moons from now~
The second wolf cries for all the vbacs that will no longer take place at Jordan Hospital located just 8 miles away from this sacred site, and the third wolf cries for the water birth suite they did away with at Jordan Hospital as well. All lament and cry for the future wise tribal members~ who will restore a variety of birth options for low risk pregnant women? Hoooooowwwwwwwlllllllllllllll.

I love all of you.

I just looked at the Wikipedia page again and read this: "German scholar Melvin Haack considers it to be a notable example of a redneck joke."

Wondering how a German scholar decides to study redneck jokes, I searched for Haack. He says in his paper, Redneck Jokes as a Subcultural Phenomenon, that he lived as an exchange student in Atlanta for his research on redneck jokes and calls himself a "zesty linguist." JMT, as a zesty linguist, can you tell me if this thing is real?

Saanen Mother, I'm positive I read that at Plimouth Plantation. Actually, I was the one that found it. I sniffed it out and dug it up while wearing my TWM shirt.

All I have to say is that this t-shirt had better come with some awesome malpractice insurance.

"calls himself a 'zesty linguist.'"

Something is lost in translation. He doens't mean "zesty." He means "cunning."

Smrt Mama... of course! That's probably a common German-to-English translation error. You should contact him.
