People Are Just Getting So Damned…Weird

I’m sorry, I just don’t get this at all

A mother fears a burglar has eaten her son’s placenta after it was stolen from her freezer, alongside frozen meat.

Auckland mother Loralie Burns said she received the disturbing news from her former landlord on Saturday.

The 35-year-old recently moved houses within the suburb of Sunnyvale, but her washing machine and fridge-freezer were still at the old property.

A thief ransacked the vacant house, rifling through kitchen cupboards and making off with the contents of the freezer: Some meat that was due to be thrown out, and a Tupperware container holding something far more precious.

“My mind’s still blown,” Burns said. “In the freezer was some meat that was supposed to go in the rubbish, and a plastic container that has my placenta in it.”

Burns kept the placenta after giving birth to her now-5-month-old son, Dante. She said it had huge sentimental value, and her family had planned to bury it somewhere significant.

Why in the name of hell would you have that in your freezer?

Just no.

    This story will no doubt, launch the next crazed anti-Trumper initiative. Produce Trump’s placenta.

    Ugh. That’s worse than keeping the baby’s first turd.

    If it was that “precious” – why didn’t she take it with her?

    I don’t get it at all, either.

    The woman teaching the useless childbirth classes at the hospital for my daughter’s birth loved to end every class with reminders to look up recipes for placenta on the internet.

    I spent a lot of time looking for the laws forbidding cannibalism in Texas. Apparently there aren’t any.
