This Woman does NOT COUNT for International Women’s Day!

Acadia Einstein

Seriously you can’t let Felicia Farruggia get included in any of the important festivities today.  She is a poor drug-addled soul who was in labor, and, I quote

…demanded to be injected with heroin and methamphetamine before 911 could be called.

The NEW HAMPSHIRE (I put that all in caps so people will realize that drugs are everywhere) woman had a friend who tried to give her the shot once and screwed it up before she finally got it right.  The needle was dirty of course but out of everything in this story that is probably the easiest thing to overlook.

So Felicia had the baby on the way to the ambulance (poor firemen having to deal with all this all the time) and the state said “Bai Felecia” and took that baby away to be somewhere more safe.  Safer places included:

  • A shark’s mouth
  • A burning shack
  • The middle of an airport runway
  • Casey Anthony’s House
  • With Jon Benet Ramsey’s parents
  • The Moon

I tell you this story because I want you to realize that sometimes when people say our country is a mess THEY ARE RIGHT!  So while it is right to celebrate strong women I think maybe someone should try to help more women like Felicia here.

And in a weird but awesome segue way, I assume she is a drug addict which is why she needed the shot.  But MAYBE she was just experiencing a lot of pain during labor and used the drugs for that.  So what’s the segue way?  Well….this week’s episode of Strangeful Things is about Hypnosis which can be used to help pain during childbirth AND to help people get off drugs.

So, maybe we should all listen to the show and try to prevent things like this from happening in the future.  Harambe is dead, folks, which means that is one less safer place we have to put Felicia’s baby until she gets hypnotized.

In all seriousness, help people who need help whenever you can.  And realize that you can do a lot more than you think you can.


I have run the site since 2005. And I have to say I am pretty damn proud of it. I wrote the book Whalewolf (sold on and am not even close to tired so I am just going to keep going. I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in New York and Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Eight years and counting....

    did you…. did you….just use International Women’s Day to plug your podcast?

    Holy shit, you are perhaps the most ~brave~ man on the planet.

    (note: the word “brave” is bookended with “~” so you can substitute it with a more appropriate word. Maybe “suicidal”?)
