Invasion of the Body Snatchers (This is Not a Hoax!)
September 28, 2011 § Leave a comment
“This is not a hoax–it is happening to women everywhere every night.” So read a recent e-mail circulating the internet and sent by a friend (S.E., you shall remain nameless). She must have thought I needed this information, or that I resembled this information or that I needed to pass along this information. And so I am, unashamedly, as it concerns important information about missing body parts, a conspiracy of replacements, and thievery of the highest order.
It starts off, “You’ve no doubt heard of people who have been abducted and had their kidneys removed by black market organ thieves.” This used to be joke, an urban myth, until I actually read of a case (was that in a thriller/mystery or was it on the news?). Anyway the woman in the e-mail reported that her thighs had been stolen as she slept and replaced with someone else’s. The new ones had the “texture of cooked oatmeal” and she doesn’t know what happened to hers.
Her derriere ́was next. She knew it was the same thieves as they “took pains to match my new rear end to the thighs they had stuck me with earlier.” The problem was, her new (ahem) rear end was attached at least three inches lower than her original.
Two years ago she realized her arms had been switched. One morning she was fixing her hair and was horrified to see the flesh of her upper arm swinging to and fro with the motion of the hairbrush.
When her neck suddenly disappeared and was replaced with what resembled a turkey neck she decided to tell her story. But the scariest moment came when she was lying in bed and realized that her breasts had disappeared! She jumped out of bed and was relieved to see that they had just been hiding in her armpits as she slept. She now keeps them hidden in her waistband. The same thieves came into her closet and shrank her clothes!
This is not a hoax. Warn your friends. It may happen to them, it may happen to you.
Anybody out there know anything about the disappearance of our original body parts? If something similar has happened to you, do tell! By the way, this blog does not contain pictures to protect the innocent.
