Weird World News: Woman pee addict spills story, North Korea loves triplets and vasectomy doctor serves slices

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: This week’s Weird World News round-up takes aim at people ingesting and breeding in the name of addiction, state approval and for the promise of pizza.

Woman addicted to drinking own pee

A 53-year-old Colorado woman has been addicted to drinking her own urine for the past four years, it emerged this past week.

Photos of the woman – identified only as “Carrie” – were posted showing her knocking back a pint-sized glass of her golden juice.

Her intake reportedly can be as much as 2.3 liters per day. Carrie guesses she has swigged back more than 3,000 liters in her lifetime.

“I drink almost all the urine that comes out of my body. It tastes like water to me,” she reportedly said.

It gets weirder.

Carrie also puts urine in a ‘Neti pot’ and drinks it nasally, and occasionally drinks it through her eyes using – you guessed it – an eye cup.

There seems to be no limit as to how far Carrie will go to get her daily intake of her urine – she even rubs it on her skin and brushes her teeth with it.

It has not been reported what kind of mouthwash Carrie uses, although we predict it will also be homemade.

North Korea loves triplets

NORTH Korea’s state news agency claims the birth of the country’s 415th set of triplets this week is thanks to the mother’s regimented diet of honey – and the loving care of the state.

Happy mother Kim Sun Ok, who works in a shoe factory, and father Kim Kyong, who works in a liquor factory, were showered with gifts and loving care from the state, at the behest of former leader Kim Jong-il.

Apparently, it pays to have a trio of tots in North Korea. Milk, honey, blankets and other goods are among the range of gifts dished out to mothers expecting triplets in the nation.

“Flowing into her body were honey tonics including the royal-jelly honey and the barren-wort honey and various kinds of nutrients,” Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.

KCNA reported that North Korea’s first triplets were born in 1947.

Doctor offers free pizza with every vasectomy

A BUSINESS-savvy Massachusetts doctor is celebrating America’s “March madness” college-basketball season by offering a free pizza with every vasectomy.

Evan Cohen, manager of Urology Associates of Cape Cod, said his patients will be able to order their favorite pizza and watch sports while they recover from their operations, The Telegraph reported.

Millions of men and women take sick days off work in March to watch the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s basketball tournament, which is on non-stop for the month.

Vasectomies usually take between two days and a week to recover from, so many men see March Madness as a good time to recuperate at home – and watch basketball. March it turns out is the most popular month for vasectomies in the state.

It is not known which pizza company Doctor Cohen will order from.

Remember to tune in next week for more of the Phuket Gazette‘s Weird World News round-up.
