saturday may 31

today i was at the very back of the streetcar when i thought i noticed a pregnant woman standing toward the front of the car. i craned my neck to look around the people standing in front of me to see why no one was offering her a seat, and realized that what i'd believed to be the pregnant belly of a shorter woman was actually the out-of-this-world butt of a much taller woman. as i leaned back into my seat, it occurred to me that "her ass is pregnant" is probably already a rap lyric, but a quick google search showed that this song was as close as any mainstream rapper has come to using that sort of imagery. i suppose, as that joe budden lyric exhibits, the synecdochical nature of the word "ass" could make it confusing.
