Ruling out a brain-eating worm, she must now find other excuses for why her child is stupid.

So she's the one with the brain-eating tapeworm. Isn't it ironic?

Yes, I really do think...

If it were a brain-eating worm, it would have starved to death by now.

She should be more embarrassed about the haircuts she's giving those kids.

The Sun ran out of stupid so had to go digging back to  2019 to pull out a story that just turned out to be a paid promo by an social media PR company.

This seems to be a new twist on the old British record label tradition of sending buyers to stores to drive a song to the top of the charts.

Dad's not in the picture.

He went out for smokes one night, got stuck in a round-a-bout, and never came home.

The Sun put things,...in our bodies.  Made us say lies.  Do things.

If it was a tapeworm that would explain why her kid has shiat for brains.

A baby was reported in a trash can. On further review, it was a taco.

You ever get the feeling that these mums report these stories to The Sun, as a supplement to their Tender coverage?

Maybe it's just the lens, distance, and angle of the photo causing a fish eye distortion.  But,...her eyes look really far apart.

I had a coworker who would make fake boogers out of "spray tack" which is simply aerosolized rubber cement. He would make a goober a couple inches long, then adhere it in one of his nostrils as he faked a huge Aahh-aaahhh-Chooo!!! Then he would leave the rubber cement goober dangling, swinging and bouncing around as he faked obliviousness. It was pretty gross looking even if you knew what was up. And if you weren't expecting it... well that was just hilarious.

Another time, I was as scout camp with a buddy from my drama troupe. We would do improv exercises in class, but he was always at another level. It was almost like being around a pathological liar, except he was just "improvving", not REALLY deceiving people. It was truly amazing to watch.

Anyway, once he was telling a group of people about the high-end steak house his family owned, with a grill so hot you only had to put the steaks on for two seconds on each side.

And how do they deal with tapeworms there? Why, it's simple. You just hang a piece of raw steak I'm front of the guy's mouth, and then when the tapeworm lunges out to eat it, you grab it around the throat and pull it out. All 60 yards of it. So it takes a couple people. Like the one time...

Holy crap, I was dying! It was like watching Sasha Baron Cohen interviewing that DEA guy, without cracking a smile!

THIS is why I never wanted kids. Must have cost the parents or their insurance a cool couple of hundred.

Huh. Could have sworn inside the ear was the place the Sun don't shine. I guess I gotta keep looking.

If you made a 3D 360degree model from that pic you would find it's actually JarJar Binks

this is the reason? you truly made the right choice then because this is absolutely nothing.

Wait till he's a teenager.  He'll be sticking things in other things daily.

That's actually how the protagonist in the Necroscope series attempts to cure a young Wamphyri of her vampire before it fully fused with her.

I'm sure the Necroscope depiction was much less graphic than my buddy Steve's. You could tell by his body language that he, personally, had removed dozens of tapeworms that way.

Bruh...you don't know Brian Lumley's writing style. It rivals Liveleak videos, but artistically.

Not being contrary or anything, but the more ppl who reads his books before he croaks, the more residuals his wife gets, and I tell everyone I can about that series. It'll make you step away to dry heave once you get into them.

I wasn't doubting you, just being funny. Trying to be.

I will check it out.

Do. They're described as like an intelligent tapeworm or liver fluke (and I'm pretty sure they're what the Go'uld were modeled after), and one instance, when a vampire became ascendent over the host (they're partially metamorphic) turned a certain body part into a tooth-edged saw while he was with a thrall.

If you know about the medical origins of the chainsaw, you can picture what happened next.
