This guy made a faux pas about periods on Twitter and will always regret it


COMEDIAN AND WRITER Jack Howards could never had foreseen the floodgates (sorry) he was going to open when he tweeted this:

There were PLENTY of people lining up to set him straight.


You see Jack, honey, a woman’s period can last for 5-7 days. A sneeze at any time during that WEEK (yes, WEEK in all caps) can cause an unstoppable torrent.

Now, where’s that Blood Coming Out Of The Lift In The Shining GIF?

Oh yes, there it is.


Oh and hey, try sneezing after you’ve squeezed out a couple of kids, JACK.

To be fair to Jack, he has admitted his ignorance, and has now agreed to join forces against the treacherous sneeze.
