Woman Coughs up a Giant Hairball

November 26, 2007

I generally don’t like to disgust people, but this was one of the biggest WTF moments I’ve ever had.  Apparently some 18 year old chick coughed up the giant hairball pictured below.

That’s a 10 pounder right there.  Old girl had a habit of eating her hair, and at some point it stopped passing through her system.  It backed up to the point where she had constant stomach pain and had lost 40 pounds.  That thing is 15 inches long and 7 inches wide and deep.  How was there even that much space in this chicks stomach?

The really crazy thing, is thinking about how much hair she had to lose or pull out to get to this point, I mean I know rastas that don’t have that much hair on their head.  Did she harvest it from friends?  Is she the only person in the world that is happy when she sees a hair in her food?  Was she licking cats?

Apparently she has recovered after the surgery, but after this, I’m expecting chicks to start eating hair as the new weight-loss technique.  Wig watchers, Weavy Craig.  They should be cropping up any minute now.
