According to the Bible, Eve was made out of Adam’s rib. Now, people are offering up ribs to another epically important woman: Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
After news broke that the Supreme Court justice had fallen and broken three of her ribs, the internet funneled its collective anxiety about the justice — and the future of the Court — into an internet meme. Quickly, social media users began to offer Ginsburg their own ribs.
I hereby donate all of my ribs and organs to Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my ribs. And my kidneys and a lung. And anything else she needs. She can even have my husband on Thursdays.

Ginsburg will soon be a human built only out of ribs. She is Ms. Rib. She has her foot on the neck of the McRib.
But seriously, a couple of broken ribs probably won’t slow Ginsburg down. Whenever I think of her, I think of that woman on 30 Rock who says that she’s getting stronger every day.
Get well soon, RBG!
