Girl or Boy? Exclusive Coverage!

Some time today, if all goes well, we'll post an announcement about the Lentil Sprout's sex.

In the spirit of the primaries, I have decided to blog it the way we've been following the democratic primaries.

First, I'll report an opinion poll so as to provide an illusion of content in the absence of actual news. Here goes:

SEX IS TOO CLOSE TO CALL!
BOY HAS SLIGHT LEAD IN EARLY SAMPLING

A coast-to-coast opinion sample by the parents' families show this race to be neck and neck. In New Mexico, results indicate BOY is in a lead right at the margin of error at 45%, GIRL at 49%, and 6% for Dennis Kucinich.

In Rhode Island, undecided prevails at 90%, with hermaphrodite at less than 1% and Ron Paul pulling a surprising 3% despite being shut out of the debates. Other candidates showing negligible results here include "it's a cat!" and "I'm not old enough to be a grandparent."

The young parents will be leaving for the doctor's shortly, and as soon as the official results are announced, we'll be here providing exclusive analysis and interviews with the parents.

This just in!

Rhode Island's Robert J. Healey, founder of the Cool Moose Party and frequent candidate for governor and lieutenant governor, has presented himself as a write-in candidate for the baby's sex.

"We are TOLD we must choose whether it will be boy or girl. This is a false and limiting choice for Rhode Island. If you elect me as the sex of Algernon and Sarah's baby, I will abolish the position altogether!"

the baby is xy
the baby is not xy
the little one is both xy and not xy
the baby is neither xy nor not xy

Katz!
Spring comes, baby appears.
