And This is How We Make Fertility Drugs…

Seriously, this was the excuse the bomber used?

A man who admitted a plot to blow up New York City subway stations with bombs planted in backpacks told his uncle that chemicals and other apparent bomb-making elements were “to manufacture a fertility medicine,” according to court papers.

You may be wondering what substances could possibly be used to create both bombs and random fake fertility drugs.  Apparently the answer is “gallon-sized bottles of toilet bowl cleaner” and nail polish.  You know, standard follicle-stimulating substances.

And he had to pick fertility drugs?  He couldn’t have been working on a cure for cancer?

Damn. All that money spent on Gonal-F, and all I needed to was head over to Walgreens? I’m always the last to know everything.

Linked to this on my FB page for all my infertility veteran peeps. Thanks for the laugh this morning!

Oh jeeeez. Truth. Its always stranger than fiction. Unbelievable.

silly man…we all know, thanks to you, that fertility (well, fertility related at least) drugs are made from porcine intestinal mucosa. That’s way more natural and healthier than toilet bowl cleaner and nail polish, though definitely harder to come by!

That is an excellent idea. I will start manufacturing immediately.

Oh come on, like you’ve never wanted to light your progesterone supplements on fire?

So to get pregnant I only need to drink a bottle of OPI and chase it with a drink from the toilet? No wonder dogs seem to have such big litters! 😉

Leigh, that made me literally LOL. Thank you.

I wish he’d have shared his secret recipe with me! Would have saved me a shit ton of cash.

Someone should have told him that if he would just relax the subway will blow up by itself…

11 Marissa { 04.23.11 at 10:38 pm }

Because Follistim is the bomb.

That last comment has to win a Comment of the Year (or at least of April’s ICLW) award!!! BigP’s Heather – brilliant!

I’m so freaking twisted that I laughed out loud after reading the snippet from the news. What a fucking moron.
