(warning: the following post is of some considerable ick factor)
My niece was born via C-section, as were her older siblings.
My brother was in the delivery room for her birth. He got a look inside when my niece's mother was reopened.
"What's all that white stuff in there that looks like popcorn?" he asked the doctor.
"Oh, that's the normal, protective layer of fat," he replied.
My niece's mother is as thin as Kate Moss. "Well, scrape it out while you're in there!" she said.
The doctor repeated himself. "Normal, protective layer of fat."
I love repeating that story.
