Diary of a Mad Black Woman

I keep seeing these ads for a movie called "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" that looked like it could be funny. Here's a quote from a review of it that I found on rotten tomatoes:

"An awful hybrid of Big Momma’s House and The Burning Bed – two films that go together like peanut butter and pubic lice."

We did the eye today. There's a bunch of muscles that pull your eye in different directions. One is the "superior oblique" which turns your eye laterally (away from your nose) and ironically inferiorly (down). In England this muscle is called the "tramp" muscle because a "tramp" there is someone who is "down and out" on their luck, almost like a hobo. Or as Ms. Forest said "the word tramp doesn't have the same meaning of a woman with loose morals in England."

So we are doing oral cavity today. We're supposed to look inside each others' mouths and see features we can't see very well on the cadavers. I go over to hear Ms. Forest at about 5, and since she knows my name, she asks me to open my mouth wide so she can point out features to like 15 people standing around. Well the first thing she says is "Wow! Your uvula is huge! What interesting anatomy!" I of course start laughing, and then everyone crowds around to see it. Then I fling my tongue up and she says "Wow, your deep lingual veins and submandibular duct openings are quite prominent too!" I had no idea.

(By the way uvula is the hangy thing in the back of your throat. It means grape in Latin)
