RETIRED TRUCK DRIVER FOOLS PODCAST HOST
A retired driver writes funny columns to try and fool these podcast hosts into figuring out what’s true and what’s bullshit. So far these guys are doing pretty good, but the retired driver knows he has a lot of bullshit to toss, and these guys are pretty gullible.
That being said I’m sure as he’s reading this out loud for the first time on the show he won’t even realize it’s about them. If that’s the case I will be crying and laughing my ass off. I will say they’re always a pretty good sport about making fun of themselves. So is this a true story or fake?
SMALL TREE FOUND INSIDE MAN’S LUNG
A Russian man who was being operated on for a suspected tumor ended up having a fir tree removed from one of his lungs. The 2-inch tree was found by surgeons when they opened up Artyom Sidorkin, 28. Doctors claim Sidorkin may have inhaled a seed, which then sprouted into a small fir tree inside his lung. He went to the hospital last month complaining of chest pain and coughing up blood. “It was very painful. But to be honest I did not feel any foreign object inside me,” Sidorkin said. Surgeon Vladimir Kamashev said he was sure it was cancer. “We did X-rays and found what looked exactly like a tumor. I had seen hundreds before, so we decided on surgery.” The tree was discovered when surgeons took a biopsy before attempting to remove the man’s lung. “I thought I was hallucinating,” said Kamashev. “I blinked three times as I was sure I was seeing things.”
