Iranian woman 'gives birth to frog'
BBC ^ | 27 June, 2004

Posted on 06/27/2004 10:34:03 AM PDT by traumer

An Iranian newspaper has reported the controversial story of a woman who claims to have given birth to a frog. The Iranian daily Etemaad says the creature is believed to have grown from larva to an adult frog inside her body.

While it is unclear how this could have happened, the paper carries quotes from medical experts who say there are human characteristics to the animal.

It has been speculated that the woman, who has not been named, unknowingly picked up the larva while she was swimming in a dirty pool.

The woman, from the south-eastern city of Iranshahr, is a mother of two children.

The "so-called frog", as the newspaper puts it, has yet to undergo precise genetic and anatomic tests.

But it quotes clinical biology expert Dr Aminifard as saying: "The similarities are in appearance, the shape of the fingers and the size and shape of the tongue."

Medical history recounts stories of people who believed they had frogs - or even lizards or snakes - living and growing in their bodies.

One of the most famous was the 17th Century case of Catharina Geisslerin, known as "the toad-vomiting woman" of Germany.

When she died in 1662 doctors are said to have performed an autopsy, but found no evidence animals had ever lived inside her body.

No, the frog is a parasite to her. It is like picking up worms. She did not give birth to it. She is insane.

Little Kermit Ahmed Akbar is being trained right now to jump into a crowded bus and detonate his vest of explosives. He will be met in paradise by 40 tadpoles. No comment from Miss Piggy.

You can laugh if you want to, but this backs up something Mark Steyn pointed out a few months ago; people in the Arab world believe all kinds of wacky things. Steyn's column was about a widely-held belief that men were having their genitals shrunk by text messages sent to their cell phones.

And this kind of thing would be funny except for the fact that they also think that Jews drink the blood of Arabic babies and stuff like that. Somebody who thinks she gave birth to an amphibian is a lot less funny when she's wearing a suicide belt.

Uh no. The human body is a very inhospitable environment.

Tapeworm yes, frog no.
