A Crafty Alternative to Eating… What?

Being pregnant, I get the occasional forwarded email from people who find funny – or horrifying – birth stories, or strange pregnancy stories, and so on.  Most of them, I just sort of nod and move on.

But this one… well, it wins, hands-down.

I’m not sure exactly what sort of contest it wins, or what the prize might be, but I do know, beyond a reasonable doubt, that it is a contest I do not want to enter.  So it wins, uncontested by me.

With appropriate nod to Willem, for stealing his line.


  1. OK, that’s just gross. Seriously? Who would actually do that? Wow.

    Thanks for sharing. Kinda.

  2. As I said, YUCK.

  3. ewwwwwwww


  4. oh, creepy. *shudders*

  5. That is really creepy. I just can’t see someone saying “Hey Doc, can you bag that up for me to take home with me for a craft project?” Ewwww!

  6. Oh. My. Gawd.

    But in response to Shannon, I do have a friend who took her placenta home (in a tupperware container, no less) so she could plant it with a new tree they bought to honor their new son. She’s from Mexico, and evidently this is pretty common in her culture. I found the tupperware connection pretty funny though.

  7. gag-inducing. horrifying. yuck.
