“Scrotum” has in fact made 96 appearances in the Times since 1970, although apparently without a single showing between October 6, 1970, and November 7, 1980. (“Penis,” by contrast, arose more than 1,200 times since 1977.) A mere eight of the “scrotum” citations appeared in lede sentences, but one of those, from last April, seems to have beaten Bosman’s citation to the status of Rosetta “Scrotum.” In a dispatch from Haiti on lymphatic filariasis, a tropical disease that causes a grossly enlarged scrotum, science reporter Donald G. McNeil Jr. got “scrotum” onto A1. Bosman — who we should note is a friend of Daily Intel’s — can take some solace, though: She made it to “scrotum” in three words; McNeil needed 33. And now we’re now done talking about Times scrota.
