A little article my Dad sent me....







A friend of mine recently had a growth in her womb and she underwent an operation to remove the cyst. The cyst removed was filled with a dark colored blood. She thought that she would be recovered after the surgery but she was terribly wrong. A relapse occurred just a few months later. Distressed, she rushed down to her gynecologist for a consultation. During her consultation, her doctor asked her a question that puzzled her. He asks if she was a frequent consumer of chicken wings and she replied yes wondering as to how, he knew of her eating habits.



You see, the truth is in this modern day and age; chickens are injected with steroids to accelerate their growth so that the needs of this society can be met.



This need is none other then the need for food. Chickens that are injected with steroids are usually given the shot at the neck or the wings.



Therefore, it is in these places that the highest concentration of steroids exists. These steroids have terrifying effects on the body as it accelerates growth.



It has an even more dangerous effect in the presence of female hormones, this leads to women being more prone to the growth of a cyst in the womb.

I would think that the steroids would diffuse through the body, so there wouldn't really be a higher concentration in that area.

That story may be false, but chicken wings are still bad for you.

One thing is true, though. Eating chicken wings gives you crow's feet.

Fairies are magical creatures, not animals, so that is still vegan. No big deal!



I would probably eat a fairy. At the very least I would wear a coat made out of fairy wings and use soap with fairy dust in it.

I don't really care about technical classifications so much as proof of a brain and nervous system. For instance, sponges are technically animals, but I doubt if they feel pain, so I don't care what happens to them.



As for fairies, I've met enough of them at Ren faires to agree that they don't have brains and aren't worth protecting.

Maybe we should start marketing fairy wings instead so people will stop eating chicken wings?

No debating the dangerous drugs and hormones part. Just saying specifically that they cause ovarian cysts when there are no studies to back it up is just as silly as my saying eating chicken wings will give you gout.

Actually, it was a uterine cyst, not an ovarian one... but I know what you mean.

If you eat too many fairy eggs a fairy grows in your womb
