Snopes.com rumor has it.
Mini rant or opinion.
I refuse to help internet urban legends, so I am posting this. I encourage everyone to save http://www.snopes.com/ to check questionable emails.
I get lots of email fws from lots of friends and family.
On occasion I actually check it to find out if something is true. That is if it seems rather weird. BTW sometimes one gets by me.
So when I found an email that contained the following I immediately went to Snopes.
I didn't include the picture with this anyone wanting to see it go to http://tinyurl.com/cpaj5.
First of all let me warn you that the picture and the movie peg is COMPLETELY, UTTERLY, STOMACH TURNING, HORRIBLY DISGUSTING!!!
You need to see it to understand why you must wash undergarments before wearing. Read the story before you click on the images.
Guys tell your wife, sisters, girlfriends. girl cousins wash bra before wearing.
It has been reported that this is happening in Zimbabwe as well,
please make sure you iron your under garments before you wear them and
make sure that your clothes are ironed when they are dry and not damp.
The picture is horrible, but I felt that I should share with you.
After anthropologist Susan McKinley came back home from an expedition
in South America, she noticed a very strange rash on her left breast.
Nobody knew what it was and she quickly dismissed it believing that
the holes would leave in time.
Upon her return she decided to see a doctor after she started developing
intense pains. The doctor, not knowing the exact severity of the
disease, gave her antibiotics and special creams. As time lapsed the
pain did not subside and her left breast became more inflamed and
started to bleed. She decided to bandage her sores however as Susan's
pain grew more intense she decided to seek help from a more certified>
doctor. Dr. Lynch could not diagnose the infection and told Susan to
seek the aid of one of his colleagues who specialized in dermatology
whom was sadly on vacation. She waited for two weeks and finally was
able to react the dermatologist. Sadly, a life changing event was
about to unfold during her appointment. To Miss McKinley's surprise,
after she removed the bandages, they found larva- (insects the
wingless, immature worm-shaped form of many insects that develops into
a pupa or chrysalis before becoming an adult insect) growing and
squirming within the pores and sores of her breast. Sometimes these
wicked creatures would all together simultaneously move around into
different crevices. What she didn't know was that the holes were in
fact, deeper than she had originally thought for these larvae were
feeding off the fat, tissue, and even milk canals of her bosom.
