Milkmaid of human kindness
BANGKOK: You won’t find many 71-year-old women bragging about their bosoms, but a fortune teller in Bangkok recently invited reporters to squeeze her breasts to prove that they were filled with milk. And not just any old milk. The woman, whose chest measures an impressive 38 inches, claims to have an abundant supply of “supernatural” milk that can ease pain, cure paralysis and ward off black magic. The woman, Pissamai Trapsukhorn, is a fortune teller by trade. But rather than read palms, she peers into the future by studying the lines on the soles of her clients’ feet. She also encourages them to drink her still-flowing breast milk. K. Pissamai said that she is a fallen angel who was cast out of heaven for having casual sex with another deity. She was reborn into the world of mortals in order to redeem mankind’s sins, like a Thai version of the character “Q” from Star Trek Next Generation. The foot fortune-teller helps out humanity by offering her magic breast milk to drink, though it was not reported if the elixir is provided free of charge. When the milk stops flowing her life will surely end, she says. “I realized that I had supernatural breasts after I had my last child, at age 50, and I continued lactating. I sought the advice of a foreign dharma master who I trust, and he explained to me that I had supernatural breasts,”K. Pissamai said. K. Pissamai steeps the leaves of the sema plant in boiling water before adding the magic ingredient. She always performs a chanting ritual when she pumps the precious fluid from her bosom. It was not reported if would-be clients were allowed to partake of the milk in undiluted form by suckling. Asked to explain the seemingly inexplicable, a doctor at Chulalongkorn Hospital said mammary glands usually stop producing milk two or three years after childbirth. Most women stop lactating altogether sometime in their 40s. A lactating 71-year-old must have unusual hormones, he concluded.
