People get so crazy with fruit.
I'm sure you regularly read Free.Republic.com. Freepers make the Tea Partiers look like socialist anarchists. I once wrote an unflattering comment about them that provoked 500 replies and quite a few on Rick Santorum's site too.
Among recent outrages is this report:
The latest effort to recruit abortionists relies on stealth and fresh fruit. Using a papaya as a uterus, medical students learn abortion techniques under the guise of "miscarriage management."
Granted, the story is pretty damn weird, but not as weird as the conclusions drawn by the site. Even though the papaya's use has utterly no connection to ingestion of the fruit, the story triumphantly concludes this way:
In some places, the relationship between papayas and pregnant women has long been an uneasy one. In some regions of Asia, it was commonly believed that papayas were dangerous for expectant mothers, and modern research has shed light on the reason: unripe papayas contain a type of fruit latex that can induce uterine contractions and potentially cause a miscarriage.
And among the comments:
Well, why the hell not. They teach kids to put condoms on cucumbers, don't they?...So, to these ghouls, women are no more than pieces of fruit.
Researching the site, I have found no complaints about bananas.
KILL IT!! Love you guys!
