I suppose she also swallowed.
A 63-year-old South Korean woman was shocked to learn she "became pregnant" with 12 baby squid after eating a portion of calamari. The story -- definitely giving new meaning to the term "Octomom" -- was detailed in a scientific paper authored by researchers at the Kwandong University College of Medicine.
Here's what happened: The unnamed woman, who we will refer to here as "New Octomom," said she was eating a portion of whole squid when she felt an extremely sharp pain in her mouth. She told doctors she could feel something in her mouth, which she described as "bug-like organisms."
"She did not swallow the portion, but spat it out immediately," the researchers wrote. "She complained of a pricking and foreign-body sensation in the oral cavity."
After the woman was hospitalized, doctors discovered "baby cephalopods" -- tiny pods covered in a cementlike material to make them stick -- attached to the inside of her mouth. The pods, which covered her gums, tongue and cheek, were filled with an "ejaculatory apparatus" and sperm, with the apparatus discharging the sperm very forcefully.
That's just a little fresher than I prefer.
I fantasize about my dogs having jobs. I pretend that both of them are window cleaners and their kennel is their first starter home. I think the bigger dog is trying to bump off the smaller dog so he can have the kennel to himself. I know I have a problem, but don't animals have to earn a living too?
Dogs may not be our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.
A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
The more I see of humans, the more I admire dogs.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
The dog is a gentleman, I hope to go to his heaven, not man's.
