I ain't got nothin' to say about that! I've learned my lesson.
 
2004-01-22 08:41:10 AM  
well, there goes breakfast.
 
2004-01-22 08:42:53 AM  
Baby got back.

She should've tried Atkins first
 
2004-01-22 09:26:34 AM  
One can only imagine what that smells like post-op.
 
2004-01-22 09:47:17 AM  
Check out this article (with pic):

Probably NSFW -- in fact, NSFB (not safe for breakfast).
 
2004-01-22 09:54:29 AM  
Wow. That's just farking insane.
 
2004-01-22 10:03:10 AM  
It's not a Tumah!

It's more like the tumor had the woman removed.

pureobscure, you just joined aarkieboy as Farkers I can trust: if you say NSFB, then it's NSFB. Of course, I'm such a moron that I still look.

*pushes away bowl of oatmeal*

She just let herself go.

Really, unless that damn thing sprung up overnight, how the hell could you let it grow that large?

She looks like one of those rap guys girlfriends.
 
2004-01-22 11:40:37 AM  
I have nothing to say about this. Because if I open my mouth to speak, the vomit collecting in there will surely come flying out.
Uuuuuugggh.

What's with the Brits always having to mix units and work "stone" in as a unit of weight along side kilos/pounds? I just don't get it.
 
2004-01-22 12:02:17 PM  
What are tumors made out of? Not sure, but I think I've seen a couple in beef that I've cut up into steaks. Nasty looking shiat.
 
2004-01-22 12:09:45 PM  
Is the tumor wearing a diaper?
 
2004-01-22 12:19:26 PM  
i wasn't hungry anyway...
 
2004-01-22 12:19:34 PM  
Good heavens -- looks like a person morphing into Jabba the Hutt.

Bet there's some saggy skin after that.

... because, as we all know, cake sellers from Transylvania have a lot of disposable income that they can use to send themselves to the US for proper medical care.

Could someone pass me the brain bleach?

Because as part of the EU we have to use metric, it's just that no-one like it, or has any idea how heavy things in kilograms are.
 
2004-01-22 12:21:40 PM  

That's not a tumor, that her own body giving it to her doggie style.


I wonder how many Aliens are ready to bust out of that woman ?

2004-01-22 12:21:51 PM  
Why do I click? pureobscure said NSFB, but I clicked. Now that thing with the diaper is lodged in my brain. I didn't have to click, he said it was nasty, but I looked anyway and now I'm scarred. Dammit!
 
2004-01-22 12:21:55 PM  
How the hell can she stand up? A sick frail woman with no muscle tone carrying twice her body weight? Impressive.

It looks like a potato.
 
2004-01-22 12:22:55 PM  
I'd hit it. With an enormous spray of vomit.
 
2004-01-22 12:22:55 PM  
My God! It's not an obesity epidemic, it's a tumor epidemic!

/nothin'
 
2004-01-22 12:23:22 PM  
But here's the rumor: Dre is in the neighborhood and he's up to no good!
 
2004-01-22 12:23:36 PM  
A 47 year old woman weighing 88 pounds... that's one small woman.
 
2004-01-22 12:24:11 PM  
Tumor schmumours. My Aunt Jessie... WHAT? Oh, this isn't about gout? Okay.
 
2004-01-22 12:24:28 PM  
OH MY GOD!

Speechless...
 
2004-01-22 12:24:29 PM  
skinink

That's not a tumor, that her own body giving it to her doggie style.

And that was when my brain crawled out my ear, leaving behind a note that said, "I can't take the abuse any more."
 
2004-01-22 12:24:50 PM  
I don't know which was more disturbing, the linked story, or the one on the sidebar about the boy pregnant with his own twin.

Making a note, not to read medical related links at lunch time.
 
2004-01-22 12:25:03 PM  
Especially after pureobscure's link.
 
2004-01-22 12:25:04 PM  
The kids today love the metric system though. It does make more sense though using big round numbers like 100 which are based around water rather than 7 and a half bits to a gander in the imperial system. Oh and the tumor pug-fugly but nice of them to do it for free.
 
2004-01-22 12:25:46 PM  
Curse you and your TotalFark-ness, AnthraxRipple, for beating me to the Sopranos reference!

[bows head in acknowledgement of defeat]

I tried posting this link (but someone beat me to it) with the headline: "Woman has 176-pound tumor removed. Johnny Sack and Ralph Sifaretto unavailable for comment."

/pouts
 
2004-01-22 12:25:57 PM  
I don't know, I think its kinda hot, but I also enjoy sitting in my own feces while wearing womens shoes and giving myself paper cuts.
 
2004-01-22 12:27:00 PM  
That picture is frickin' unbelievable. How the hell did this woman go to the bathroom, or is that what the diaper is for?

/btw- obligatory "the goggles, they do nothing" statement.

----------------------------
I read the article on the sidebar.

I agree 100%
 
2004-01-22 12:27:53 PM  
from the Ananova piece:
"The Discovery Channel agreed to foot the bill for the 250,000 cost of the operation in exchange for the film rights."

Can't wait for that one to show up on TV!
 
2004-01-22 12:28:17 PM  
I think I saw hair and teeth!!
 
2004-01-22 12:28:51 PM  
I extend a hearty thanks to farkers who link to NSFW or B as opposed to just popping it up there.

As for tumors, they can grow farking huge...they're horrible.

/doesn't look at NSFB stuff
 
2004-01-22 12:28:57 PM  
PICS?
 
2004-01-22 12:29:19 PM  
I am proud of myself for not clicking that link. I learned my lesson already. (tubgirl, yeesh)
 
2004-01-22 12:29:42 PM  
it's ok, she had subway for lunch!
 
2004-01-22 12:29:56 PM  
I dunno if this is too gross to not be moderated out, so I'll just note that it's the cellar image of the day today.
 
2004-01-22 12:30:29 PM  
"The Discovery Channel agreed to foot the bill for the 250,000 cost of the operation in exchange for the film rights."

So then I guess they DIDN'T do it out of the kindness of their hearts...
 
2004-01-22 12:31:48 PM  
Wow.
 
2004-01-22 12:34:23 PM  
Was she trying to die? Whas she going for the record tumor?

All I know is that if i had something growing on my back, i would be at the doctor before it even added 5 pounds to my weight.
 
2004-01-22 12:34:55 PM  
WHAT DID THEY DO WITH THE BATBOY LOGO?

they published this on the wrong site, I think

"And that was when my brain crawled out my ear, leaving behind a note that said, "I can't take the abuse any more."

I think that was the funniest thing I've ever read in my life.

i'm still laughing actually
 
2004-01-22 12:35:13 PM  
holy crizap
 
2004-01-22 12:36:34 PM  
I saw the Discovery channel bit on the other lady from somewhere here in the US that had her tumor removed, and at first I thought the same thing - "How the hell could you let it get that big without getting it looked at?" Well the damned thing was almost 100 pounds of tumor and it grew from NOTHING to 100 pounds of tumor in like seven months... she started trying to find a doctor to take it off of her at like 3 months and no one would do it. Too dangerous.

Until the hero doc who did it at 100 lb and 20 hours of surgery.

I can't even imagine something growing that fast.
