ASK DUNDERBRAIN! – Eggplant Parmesan and Labor…

Chastity Writes:

What is the deal with the eggplant parmesan and inducing labor? Is this real? Im gullable. But im willing to make this recipe soon!

Dear Chastity,

I did some reading up on this and although it’s an old wive’s tale many people have seen results from it.  In Cobb County Georgia, a restaurant called Scalini’s is known for their baby poppin’ Eggplant Parmesan.  In fact, their walls are decorated with over 300 pictures of babies said to have been assisted into this world via their hearty fried vegetable.

After a little prowling around I found that it wasn’t actually the dish itself but the basil and oregano in the marinara sauce.  I’m sure the fact that Eggplant Parmesan is an extremely heavy meal and after consuming there really isn’t much room left for a baby to hang out can’t have too much to do with it…

I also read that stimulating your nipples (gigggle gigggle) can help pop your kid out.  I know a lady that shoveled gravel until she went into labor.  Or just do it the old fashioned way and offer the kid $10 to bail.

    Yep, you’re gullible. I’ve eaten aubergine(egg plant) and parmesan many a time, and never have I given birth.

    Oh gawd, do you know TIRED I am of hearing about pregnancies and who’s been so blessed to gain 70 lbs. and every nasty little detail and then the precious little thing appears and we all solemnly bow as a beautiful glow fills the room ….

    Not that I’m jealous or anything. That’s a whole ‘nother story.

    Just my opinion ~ and ya can’t rip me up, Justin, because I know where your mother lives!!

    And just wondering ~ don’t you just LOVE Adam Lambert’s music??? 🙂
