I was told that "The Night of the King's Castration" was composed by the "ladies" of the University of Chicago law school, in response to a challenge by the men that they couldn't come up with anything really obscene.
My sister attended the University of Chicago, though she went to law school at Illinois Institute of Technology. But she doesn't know if the immortal words came from the U of C.
Sophonisba P. Breckenridge, one of the first women on the faculty of the University of Chicago said, "It's what's between a person's ears that counts, not what's between her legs." And that I'm sure of.
