Lemonjello
Orangelello
Female

What do these words have in common?

They were all names found in a maternity ward nursery in Detroit in the 1980’s.

Female is pronounced fee MA ley.

They stopped indicating ‘Male’ and ‘Female’ on the footboards of the little cribs that face the nursery window as a result. Some mothers thought the hospital issued the name to the baby.

Lemonjello? Yup, Lemon Jello.

It’s not a racial thing, however, it’s a stupid thing. Here in the town I live in reside Kirk Douglas Sullivan and Marilyn Monroe Sullivan, along with Brandi Cherry Gustavson, and a boy with a middle name Allowishus. All white.

Her parents want to get an early start on pushing that porn/ poledancing career, it seems!
