Mary Toft

Mary Toft was a young woman in the town of Godalming, located in the south of England. In 1726 she attracted the attention of medical doctors when she insisted she gave birth to rabbits.

A skeptic man-midwife, John Howard, went to investigate. To his amazement, he delivered three rabbits in as many days. The King sent his own physicians, who witnessed the phenomenon. 

Mary was then transported to London.  She went into labour several times, but under constant supervision did not birth any more rabbits. When she was to be surgically examined to determine where the rabbits were coming from, she confessed that she had been putting them there herself when no one was looking. 

Which is disgusting. wtf was wrong with that lady, seriously?

First time to your blog and wow -- birthing rabbits --

What's wrong with the woman? The same thing that's wrong with 9/10 of all the people in reality shows today -- she craved attention and was willing to do whatever it took to get it.
