Smoking While Pregnant Brings Woman Fame

Words fail me...



Thanks to one of my readers, Azucar, for verifying that this is indeed a real photo. Read a local follow-up article here. It includes such gems as, "As for smoking while pregnant, she said her doctor told her "it would be good if I cut back, but if I totally quit, it would not only cause stress on me but it would cause stress on the baby."

Surely she is just holding that cigarette for someone, like... maybe the photographer...yeah... that's it...

That just can't be real, it just can't.

I saw the top of that photo and before I even scrolled down I thought "She'd better not be pregnant..." Tell me it's not real?! PLEASE! Even if it is real, tell me it's not... just so I can sleep tonight... blah!

Um, yes, concerned about the possible effect of jackhammers, but not the proven effect of cigarette chemicals . . . hmmmm. I'm really feelin' for her here.

Please tell me this is a joke...ugh, stupid people.

Next to the news headline (upper right corner) you can perfectly read what's probably the best choice for her... after she finish her cigarrette, of course.

Oh, my!!!

That is just too horrid for words!

you're so right everyone gets the "decency" of a cigarette before execution.

Ignorant people never cease to amaze me.

This is SAD...

Lindsay said...

Yeah: there are no words.

Please tell me this is a photoshop job.

AzĂșcar said...

Guess what...it's real.

And it shows that she's getting some really awesome medical advice:

"As for smoking while pregnant, she said her doctor told her "it would be good if I cut back, but if I totally quit, it would not only cause stress on me but it would cause stress on the baby.""

Hey Azucar! Thanks for finding that link!! I really thought it was a prank photo until I saw your post! Yikes.

Oh come on Hollywood, she's trying to keep her girlish figure!

As a visitor to the metropolis that is Roanoke, I can confirm that she is an average citizen there. You should see what the jackhammers have done to some of the residents. She should be concerned. ;-)

Speechless.

Insanity. It's what's for breakfast.

I weep for the youth of America.

Ditto on Sue's comment.

I can't wait for that child to be fifteen...holy smokes indeed.

Samantha said...

Wow. That seems like something from the Onion.

wynne said...

So, am I the only one who thinks this is...oh, just a typical people-type thing to do?

I mean...people are pretty dumb, after all. And funny, to boot.

s'mee said...

Hey Sarah...You've been TAGGED. Details at my place!

(can't wait to hear your answers!)

I don't get some people...
