Never Ever Lick An Envelope!!!‏


One day a lady licked the envelopes and postage stamps instead of using a sponge. That very day the lady found a cut on her tongue. A week later, she noticed an abnormal swelling on her tongue. She went to the doctor, and they found nothing wrong. Her tongue was not sore or anything. A couple of days later, her tongue started to swell more, and it began to get really sore, so sore, that she could not eat. She went back to the hospital, and demanded something to be done. The doctor took an x-ray of her tongue and noticed a lump. He prepared her for minor surgery. When the doctor cut her tongue open, a live cockroach crawled out!!!!

There were cockroach eggs on the seal of the envelope. The egg was able to hatch inside of her tongue, because of her saliva. It was warm and moist.

This is a true story reported on CNN.

Hey, I used to work in an envelope factory. You wouldn't believe the things that float around in those gum applicator trays. I haven't licked an envelope for years. I used to work for a print shop (32 years ago) and we were told NEVER to lick the envelopes. I never understood why until I had to go into storage and pull out 2500 envelopes that were already printed and saw several squads of cockroaches roaming around inside a couple of boxes with eggs everywhere. They eat the glue on the envelopes.

PS: This is a hoax, Hahahaha...

even without doing research, there are various inconsistencies in this email.

How did the cockroach egg get INSIDE her tongue when she simply licked it? Did the egg have incisors and cut her tongue open and sneaked inside?

If you have seen a cockroach egg before, it's quite big about 1/2 to 1 cm in length. VERY OBVIOUS if it was on an envelope.

Furthermore, EACH EGG can produce up to 52 it wouldn't be just 1 cockroach.

Lastly, if it was really reported on CNN...LINK?

Simply a google of the title leads me to THIS. The whole thing is a hoax...

If anyone's interested, please read: STOP FORWARDING STUPID EMAILS

Cheers! :D
