Since the Age of Exploration gave way to colonization of the Americas, folks living in our neck of the woods here in the U.S. of A. have feared travel back to the Old Country.
They feared crossing the ocean on a sailing vessel, a steamer, an ocean liner. It is a big ocean. (Remember the unsinkable Titanic)
They feared flying over the Atlantic in a dirgible (Remember the Hindenburg)
They feared flying over the Atlantic in an airplane because anything can happen.
But mostly they feared trying to get by in a language they could neither speak nor understand. That, and they use different money over there!
In recent years, though, more and more Americans are venturing abroad. Seeing the sights, the art, the scenery, the architecture that Europe is so justly famous for.
But all that will end soon. Because there is something new in Europe to fear.
Vaginas. Yup. Vaginas. Big ones. At least that’s what I read over at Talking Points Memo
