Here we go again!

First it was fertility waterfalls (made famous by Nicole Kidman), now it is fertility statues?

Ripley's Believe It or Not! has this exhibit of some statues, and apparently over 2000 women claim to have become pregnant after touching these statues! The fact that the statues are placed in a place called the "Odditorium" speaks for itself, no? 

I'm wondering if I'm cuckoo enough yet to fax them a copy of my palm!! 

Myrtle Beach, anyone?

Here are some of the links:


There are many more articles out there. If you just google "ripleys fertility statues" you'll be amazed at the number of results it throws up! 

I'm just stupefied at these stories! Don't know what to make of them! Now, if they said they could CURE infertility, then it would be a whole different story, eh?

I KNOW!!! I am just waiting for one of my friends/family members to suggest that I go touch the statue. I can't believe people REALLY believe this crap!

Interesting...I grew up in Myrtle Beach btw. I knew I should've went to my 10 year high school reunion. lol Over the years, I've heard lots of cooky stories, but to actually hear one from Myrtle Beach, wow.
