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

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

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

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!

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

Yes, I really do think...

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


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

Dad's not in the picture.

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

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.
