I think it means that after having a hysterectomy, you may be happier, as you no longer have any fear of getting pregnant. That's "No womb and no cry". Still think there's no such thing as an incorrect interpretation, Mike?

I'm curious. If you sign a release before appearing in front of a camera, are you releasing your rights to the image or are you actually releasing the producer, photographer, etc. from their responsibility to compensate you for the use of the image? I wonder if you don't often see "...release my rights to...", but are more likely to see "...release [insert name here] from..." How are these documents usually worded?

Grave accent? Really? Not in French. Why would the accent, if preserved, be changed in type? That doesn't make any sense. Perhaps your source (or your recollection) was in error?
