Ruth Bader Ginsburg Is About to Have More Ribs Than She Can Count

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.

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!
