Do women have an extra rib?
I asked this question while eating BBQ Ribs at Memphis Barbeque last night
because I wanted female baby back ribs!
So, is it true that women have two more ribs than men do?
If so, could this be the origin of the biblical story about how Eve was made from Adam's rib?
The answer follows:
All people have twelve ribs.
The origin of the Adam's rib story isn't known for sure, but some think it may stem from a Sumerian joke.
So, you won't get 2 more ribs if you order female baby back ribs.
