Goldfish Gets Brain Surgery

In Melbourne, Australia, an apparently regular occurrence is taking plaice (pun intended) – a fish surgery. Dr. Tristan Rich at Lort Smith Animal Hospital operated on a goldfish named George to remove a large tumor.

To prepare for the surgery, Rich had George swim around in a bucket of water laced with anesthetic to knock him out, the hospital explained in a Facebook post. A spokesperson from Lort Smith told NBC News the surgery cost about $300 AUD and, despite how unusual it seems, it’s not the first of its kind.

Woman Addicted To Eating Mattresses

The TV show ‘My Strange Addiction’ seeks to find the most obscure obsessions – chocolate and cigarettes just won’t cut it here. So during their two-hour premiere event, viewers were introduced to Jennifer. For more than two decades, Jennifer has been eating mattresses. She said that she ate about a square foot of mattress each day.

“I start out with the good stuff. The good stuff to me is the pillow-top itself,” Jennifer

She admittedly only eats until she reaches the springs, or when it ‘starts to smell funny’. Doctors have advised Jennifer that she would die if she continued – to her surprise. While it was a serious health matter, themattresseatingwoman2 Philadelphia Inquirer’s David Hiltbrand couldn’t resist joking, “We would have thought a steady diet of mattress would make you drowsy.” She has since vowed to stop at the concern of her family.
