We are almost up to unveiling the absolute best blogs of the past year – almost. The top 3 will be revealed next week. Right now, I want to touch on 2 stories that are just so outrageous, you’d probably think that I am just making them up to shock and entertain. Sadly, my imagination is not quite this good. I couldn’t make up these stories even if I tried. Regardless, they are certainly worth a read.
Cross-Dressing Laundry Detergent Thief: “I’ll Surrender…Once My Breast Implants Heal”
This was my first post of 2010, and it set the tone for a great year. Lots of outrageous stories to report in the wacky world of plastic surgery, and this was by far one of best. I think the title pretty much says it all. But just in case you need a little more information to entice you to read the actual post…
I won’t reveal all of the details of this story here. You’ll need to read the initial post for that, and I highly encourage you to do so – this story is nothing short of unbelievable. A cross-dressing man in Charlotte, North Carolina was a fugitive from the law after stealing $48 of laundry detergent from a local Family Dollar store. Once he found out he was wanted for Grand Theft: Laundry Detergent, he promptly called the police to inform them that he was currently recovering from breast augmentation and would turn himself in as soon as he had healed.
Hmm. Maybe he was more than just a cross-dresser. Perhaps a bit of a transsexual? Maybe a bit confused about his gender identity? His name, Mitchelle (not Mitchell, not Michelle, but somewhere in between) seems to indicate that this might be the case. I guess the typical gender neutral names like Alex, Casey, Jamie, Taylor, etc. were too boring for him.
There are plenty of other interesting twists to this tale, including his poor choice of getaway car, an attempted murder, and the utter ineptitude of Charlotte police when trying to track down a 5’6”, 230 pound man with breast implants. Get my point? This one is a must-read.
Woman’s Breast Implant Stops Bullet
Yes, the Implant of Steel – foiling the plans of bad guys everywhere. I’ll bet you never thought getting a boob job would help you survive a shooting. Well, it turns out that in at least one case, a saline breast implant was just as good as a bulletproof vest.
The poor woman was the innocent victim of an unbalanced (read: crazy) husband who did not take his wife’s request for a divorce very well. He came to the dental office where his wife worked and shot up the place. Too bad the wife didn’t have breast implants. Maybe she would have survived the shooting. But luckily, our heroine had the Implant of Steel, ensuring that she would live to see another day. And it gave me a pretty good blog post in the process. Again, another must read.
Next week, I’ll reveal the top 3 plastic surgery blog posts of 2010. If you think these were good, you have no idea what you are in store for next week.
