The Grossest Thing You Will Read About Today

This is all sorts of messed up so I’m just gonna dive right in. A midwife in China is accused of sewing a woman’s anus shut during labor? Why? Because she was allegedly unhappy with her tip. First of all, you have to tip a midwife? Is this standard practice around the world? Weird. Also, disgusting. According to reports, before the woman went into labor, her husband tipped the midwife the equivalent of $15, which, if tipping your mid-wife is a standard thing, sounds pretty cheap to me too. But I digress. So, the victim says she was told by the midwife that she was going to alleviate her hemorrhoid pains, but instead says the pissed-off midwife sewed her anus closed using a needle and thread. The midwife told investigators that she did treat the patient’s hemorrhoids but that she did not stitch her no-no hole closed. Where I come from, anuses don’t stitch themselves, so I’m dubious. Also, I am grossed out and am going to go barf now. [Life of Guangzhou] Keep reading »

A deep sea diver. A zombie with a shovel and a chicken drumstick. And even a kick-ass robot! But all of those minifigures — and more — apparently have tiny little yellow LEGO penises. (OK, not really. But they are all boy LEGOs.) The only two that are women are a cheerleader and a nurse.

Geez Louise. I’m actually shocked there’s no secretary or waitress. Keep reading »
