Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Doctors at a Colombian hospital performed surgery on a woman who swallowed more than $7,000 in U.S. $100 bills during an argument with her husband.

The 28-year-old woman told doctors at the Hospital Universitario de Santander in Bucaramanga that she was suffering from severe stomach pain after swallowing between $7,000 and $9,000 in U.S. $100 bills.

The woman said she had raised the money by selling household electronics and had been planning to use it for a trip to Panama, but she swallowed the cash out of spite when her husband demanded a cut of the money during an argument.

"The patient was taken to surgery. Two operations were performed at the gastric level, at the exit of the stomach and at the disc part of the intestine," chief of surgery Dr. Juan Pablo Serrano told Telemundo's Al Rojo Vivo news program.

He said surgeons successfully removed $5,700 in bills that were in salvageable condition.

"The rest, which were palpated in the tract, were advanced into the colon and were expelled in a normal way," he said.

Police said they are currently holding onto the 57 $100 bills removed from the woman's stomach until investigators can verify she wasn't attempting to smuggle it illegally.

Bizarrely,
Lewis

Customs officials in Arizona said a woman attempting to cross the border from Mexico disguised $45,000 worth of heroin as her buttocks. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said the 47-year-old woman, a U.S. citizen from Arizona, was referred for further inspection when she attempted to cross the border from Mexico to Nogales in a pedestrian lane. The woman was searched and investigators discovered she had nearly 3 pounds of heroin, worth more than $45,000, strapped to her backside inside her pants. The woman and the seized drugs were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.

*----- Another Stupid Karate Record Falls -----*

A martial artist in Pakistan added to his collection of world records by smashing dozens of coconuts using his head. Black belt Muhammad Rashid set a new Guinness World Record for "Most green coconuts smashed with the head in one minute" by slamming his head down and bursting 35 coconuts. In order to set the record Rashid was required to use his head to smash each coconut until they began to leak milk. Video shows the martial artist as he grabbed each coconut with both hands and sent his head crashing down with a mighty blow until they began to burst. Rashid is the founder and president of Pakistan Academy of Martial Arts and holds several other martial arts world records including "Most drink cans crushed with elbow in one minute." His new unofficial title is now "Ol' Coconut Head" Rashid.

Lewis, The person shaving the cats is probably tired of them coming around and crapping in his yard, have the same problem here in CA. People leave their cats running around the neighborhood crapping everywhere and think nothing of it, maybe this person is doing something about it. At least they are not harming them physically I guess. -Gary

Interesting story about the shaved cats. I wonder if it's just another version of a shaved beaver. -Scott
[That's 'stuffed' beaver. Didn't you ever watch "Naked Gun"?]


LEWIS; Your story about 21-year-old Yomna Fouad who let guys take her home for sex and then robbed them when they slept reminds me of a USN hillbilly boatswain's mate 1st class who took a babe home from a bar and then fell asleep in bed with her. The next morning she was gone and so was all the money from his wallet. This happened in Pensacola, Florida. Such women are probably fairly common at bars where military personnel and businessmen come looking for a good time. -R.S.
