Headline of the week – maybe of the year


I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read this headline:

I mean . . . huh???  At first I though this had to be a parody or satirical “news” site – but no, it’s a serious news outlet for and in New Jersey.

I’m not going to embed the news report here.  You can click over on that headline to read it for yourself.  Suffice it to say that the details are as gory as you can imagine.  Frankly, I wouldn’t have believed it was physically possible, but clearly I’ve lived a sheltered life.

I presume the victim (or perhaps he’s better described as the perpetrator?) isn’t married . . . because if he was, I’d love to be a fly on the wall and listen to him trying to explain that to his wife!



  1. The victim is the chicken, not the dude.

    Saw the headline and that's as close to the story as I want to get.

  2. I just skimmed the article.

    The number of absurdities is incredible.

    Apparently you can treat a chicken for ptsd- who knew?

  3. Well, SOMEone has to give those highly stressed ER folks some levity. I say pin a medal on the doofus. Right after the cluckstraction, that is.

  4. I was slightly suspicious when the article stated he had not yet regained consciousness yet had a photo of an individual in bed looking at the camera. Pixelated with the "witness protection filter" but most likely conscious.

    So I went image searching for whatever else was out there.

    Snopes has declared it to be a fake and points to a satire site article of the same: https://worldnewsdailyreport.com/indiana-egg-farmer-transported-to-hopsital-with-a-live-adult-chicken-stuck-in-his-rectal-cavity/ and notes that the same photo was used at this other story: https://dailynewsreported.com/sun-glasses/700lb-man-dies-after-spiders-hatch-in-his-belly-button/

    The question now is whether a writer at the New Jersey Brief swiped a 'too good to resist' story (it happens in the industry) and published it under her own name, and is about to get a big case of 'egg on face' embarrassment.

  5. I have oft seen the advisory to NOT read the comments. Sometimes I have done so anyway. In this particular. not will I heed the advice to not read the comments, I will take the precaution of not even reading the article.

    Mind, it's not that I am unaware (or even unpossessing) of perversions, but a creature, yes even a monster, must have some limits!
