Why not administer worm capsules, with worms in them, to humans as a way to lose weight? Surely there is a sanitary way to get the worms where they need to be w/o having to rub your hiney in the dirt! It will be the greatest diet tool ever.

Already been done in the old days before they figured out medicine.
Nothing like wiping your ass and pulling out a friggen worm. It happened to my brother when he came back from Asia
A few countries still sell the things

World record tapeworm -


Tapeworm (Longest) ----------------- Sally Mae Wallace of Great Grits, Mississippi, holds the record. On Sep 5 1991, doctors extracted 37 feet (continuous) of tapeworm from Sally. "About after 20 feet of that thing had come out of my mouth," Sally told us, "I just knew I had the record. I was really filled with joy."

Don't worry about that VooDoo, we'll find a fat guy to test it. Or maybe Rosie. Or Oprah when she tubs up again. My God, what an endorsement that would be!

1920s-2000: The Tapeworm Diet
Advertisements for tapeworm pills first emerged in the 1920s. Since then, a number of famous women, from opera singer Maria Callas to supermodel Claudia Schiffer, are alleged to have tried this revolting eating plan. Here’s how it works: the tiny parasite lives in the intestine of the host, helping to consume her food. The result: you are hungry all the time but still able to remain rail thin , however much you eat. One urban myth that circulated during the early eighties claimed that a woman taking a ‘miracle diet pill’ lost such an alarming amount of weight in just a few weeks that her doctors decided to get to the bottom of things. When they opened these mysterious pills to investigate the contents, they were greeted by the head of a tapeworm

Dupe? That was a joke....Hell, I'm serious. Sure there are a few little details to work out. Like teaching the worms to stay put. I could see where these guys could be a serious sex turn-off.

That would probably bring an end to the requests for pooper pics.

You can buy worm medication for humans from the drugstores in Asia. They don't call it the Turd World for nothing! I heard about an evil concoction that was supposed to be gulped down like Pepto, and it'll flush your insides out completely including the worms.

you can buy worm meds for humans on Ebay as well. I've been considering putting some in the bug out bag just for good measure

I see our invention as some sort of freeze-dried, timed release, encapsulated, genetically manipulated worm eggs. LOSE 50LBS. OR WE SEND YOU 3 FREE GUT STAPLES! How could it miss?

It sounds like a great idea!
Did you ever see the Futurama episode where Fry eats an egg salad sandwich at a truck stop and it turns out to made from worm eggs?
Friggin' hilarious!

They did this in the late 1800's. Sold weight-loss medications that were just tape worms inside a small piece of chocolate.

Swindle - did it work?

Excuse me darling while I push my worm back in, I am on a new diet you see and...........

There was a Twilight Zone or Amazing Stories episode similar to this.

Basically, if you were an alcoholic, this guy had a cure. But there was NO WAY to back out.

So you take one pill and your done.

From now on, you can drink as much as you want, and not get drunk. You loose any of the "buzz" of drinking.

In the pill was a parasite, that absorbed all the alcohol in your system.

Now, you can one of two ways, keep feeding the worm and let it grow slowly over time, or go cold turkey, making it go into a dormant state (and thus swearing off the booze forever).

Good show!

Feed em some SKOAL, it's cheaper than the vet

No. No. No. We don't want no stinking cat worms. These can't be your everyday run of the mill worms. We've got to have designer worms. Genetically engineered to stay put and only grow a certain length.
If this doesn't work I'm working on a trachea-like tube that would stick out of your throat. Got a few problems to work out with that one.
