  • Woman who used potato for contraceptive hospitalized

    This is a public service announcement. Ladies, don't try this at home.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/ar...#ixzz3F5rID0Mn

    The story was covered by Colombia Reports, a large news website in the country.
    It claims the unnamed woman told doctors: 'My mum told me that if I didn't want to get pregnant, I should put a potato up there, and I believed her.'
    The discovery was made when the woman, from the central Colombian town of Honda, went to hospital complaining of abdominal pains.
    When a nurse examined her, she found roots from the potato that had grown.
    However after removing it, doctors confirmed there would be no lasting damage to the woman's health.

    I wonder if she developed any maternal instincts for little spud and got to take it home?

        At least she didn't end up pregnant; people that stupid shouldn't have children.

          So, would you like that mashed, boiled or fried?
          It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.

            Depends on how long she left it in. Sounds like they mashed it to get it out.

              The purported case of a potato growing in the unnamed woman's vagina is attributed to "local news reports," but all media mentions trace back to a single article on Columbia Reports. Most notable is the story's exact resemblance to a decades-old urban legend regarding the use of potatoes as contraceptives among rural women due to insufficient sex education.

                The story failed to report she used Yams on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

                            Well said. My first thought when I saw the subject line: "Stupid people shouldn't reproduce, but that might not be the best way to guarantee it."
