Another Myth Exposed

I found this posting on a website the other day and just have to share it.

I was discussing with O. the signifcance of people who are born with three nipples. We went over the people we had known who had had three nipples. He told me he knew a boy when we was growing up who had nine nipples. Apparently, his mother had used a vibrator when he was still in the womb and the vibrations had caused him to have extra nipples. I commented that at least his mother wasn't stressed out which would have caused some other possibly more serious symptom in the boy.

People, that theory is not worth the pixels it's printed on. Vibrators do not cause moms to give birth to extra-nippled babies. If that were the case, then we would not have seen people with three nipples (or nine!) before 1902, the year the first vibrator was patented. And we'd have a lot more people walking around with happy moms and a third nipple. Or a ninth...
