Woman confuses 'hydrocarbons' with 'carbohydrates'
on 7/3/2004 (0)
Manicurist Suzie Noonan, not fully understanding what 'carbohydrates' were, made a near fatal blunder in her misguided interpretation of the Atkins diet.
|Hydrocarbons...no, I mean carbohydrates! |
Sitting up and resting comfortably from a hospital bed in Ft. Worth, Texas, Noonan sipped from a cup of ice water and rubbed her aching stomach
"I-I had to have my tummy pumped. It was kinda scary, really. I wanted to lose some weight to look sexier for my job, and I heard about the Atkins diet. I guess I screwed up, though."
It seems Noonan had referenced 'hydrocarbons' on Google instead of 'carbohydrates', and was drinking 2 quarts of 10W/30W Valvoline a day for several weeks. When asked how she could have possibly made such a seemingly empty headed blunder, Noonan recalled
"I flunked out of Chemistry 101 in high school, and ended up in the beauty school program a week later."
Outside of severe acute flatulence, Noonan is expected to make a full recovery.<
