Holy shit this is a day full of weird news. Have you ever thought about eating your newspaper after you’ve finished reading it? No? I hadn’t either. Butthis woman from Edmunton has nibbled on it every day for 7 years!
Yup, you heard that right. She doesn’t have Alzheimers, there’s nothing wrong with her mind. She doesn’t have any weird iron deficiencies that sometimes give people the urge to eat things that aren’t food. She just likes the taste of it, and it has to be the Edmunton Sun.
She finally got a case of, well, sun-block, when a ball of paper blocked her esophagus and had to be moved down into her stomach with a scope. Now she’s not so keen on chewing on the sun.
What the hell? What in hell would cause a completely sane person to start eating a newspaper? Did she lose a bet and she said she’d eat this newspaper if she lost, ate it, and then thought it was quite delectable? Even more shocking is the doctor’s claim that the Sun was otherwise not harmful to her health. How can that be? Wouldn’t ink be poisonous, especially after eating it for seven years?
Wow. What else can I say? That’s just messed up.
