“Dead Butt Syndrome”: surprisingly, not a euphemism.

It must also be a euphemism. I mean, come on.

Someone Author Jen Miller is going to regret being this clever honest on The New York Times‘ Well blog:

Hold the tuba. My butt’s not really dead. It can’t be revived with defibrillator paddles, but it can be fixed.

After her post title pulls you in, it is kind of a let down from there as she explains what is essentially just a running injury with a funny name. But, she manages to conclude with equal verve:

[I]f it’ll revive my butt, it’s worth every leg lift and crunch.
