jejunum

We should feel more pity for our guts.

I often forget that my intestine isn’t the bad guy in my life.

Poor intestine is attacked and damaged every day by our crazy immune system.

So I’m here to say: Sorry for blaming you esophagus, stomach, duodenum, jejunum, ileum and colon.

You’re such brave guys.

I love you.

Don’t give up fighting.

Project: “empathise with your intestine” part I
Science Scunday: Jejunum

Jejunum: interjection. 1) Used to break the news to a person named Junum, as Junum is rather unlucky.

Person 1: “Jejunum, I don’t know how to tell you this, but that steak you ate was your uncle Harry.”

Junum: “I KNEW IT!”

Jejunum: n. 2) The middle section of the small intestine in most higher vertebrates, including mammals, reptiles, and birds.

Doctor 1: “Jejunum, I don’t know how to tell you this, but that steak you ate is lodged pretty tight in your jejunum.”

Junum: “I KNEW IT!”
