The seven dwarves of menopause

Dave Wieneke pointed out that images of Disney's Seven Dwarves are circulating along with an apparently popular meme naming the seven dwarves as menopausal symptoms. Of course Disney doesn't own "seven dwarves," but as he notes, a lot of times the list is accompanied with that particular Disney image. My quick Google found it back as far as 2006. Wieneke found a pharmacy ad reproducing the Disney dwarves; here's a hand-embroidered sweatshirt doing the same. It just goes to show that even Disney can get overwhelmed by a meme.
