A new University of Iowa study confirms what many women have long suspected – that pregnancy permanently changes the size and shape of a woman's feet.

News you can use? Well, it was certainly a new one to me.

I think that was just an excuse for a researcher with a foot fetish to get his rocks off on the government dime.

They had to do a study for this? Of course it can be dangerous to ask any pregnant woman a question. Especially if it suggests that a part of her body is getting bigger.

Bang on, cindy. To paraphrase The Blog Himself, one should never say anything to a woman that might suggest you think she is pregnant unless you see a baby coming out of her at that moment.

...unfortunately, a certain nurse forgot that rule in recent weeks, eh cindy?


Yes I did Jeff. I was shopping a few weeks ago and asked a cashier when her baby was due. She nicely informed me she wasn't pregnant. I immediately remembered Dave's advice and I will NEVER make that mistake again. I tried to make it better by telling her my daughter was pregnant so I just assumed everyone was! btw, my daughter isn't pregnant.

Before I forget, *SMACKS* Jeff for pointing that out.

Another excuse for women to buy shoes. Do they really need one?

That's why they sell those pointy Rosa Kleb shoes: so women can kick you to death if you mention that their feet have gotten bigger.

So pregnancy changes the shape of a woman's feet? To what? Are we talking duck feet, here? Or hooves? Come on, define your terms.

Yeah, I didn't "know" that one of our nurses was pregnant until she walked into the department with a live, screaming baby.
Talk about an elephant in the room...
Ooh, maybe I shouldn't have said that.
