The vocal chord, or vocal fold as it is termed by people who really care about such things, is a legitimate ligament, as Karen H (the H stands for Hoarse), Elena, and Karen M (the M stands for Mi Mi Mi Mi Mi Mi Mi) could tell you. Hooray for the three of you, and hooray for ligaments everywhere!

Reigning American Idol champ Jordin Sparks had to drop a few dates off of her tour, thanks to a vocal chord hemorrhage. And let me tell you, when your voice is hurt so bad you can't even lip sync, you're in bad shape. It's been bordering on painful watching Miss Sparks mouth the words to national anthems and teeny bopper hits alike. And now this? It almost makes me feel bad for mocking her. Almost. Here's today's question:

A human vocal chord is actually:

A) a ligament
B) a muscle
C) an organ
D) skin
E) a tendon
