23 November 2008 - be warned this week. [More:]i'm not linking to it, but be warned. there is an extremely extremely gross secret this week involving a breast - which sounds nice but REALLY ISN'T. i only caught a slight glimpse of it and i'm ill now and want to yack.

i know there are other post secret readers here for sunday morns... it's like goatse - once it's seen, it can't be unseen.
What's that supposed to even be? What is the myth behind what appear to be bb shots in a booby? Gross, to be sure, but what the hell is it?

it's a breast with maggots.

i can't confirm the above link, i'm grossed out enough already but someone posted that on the facebook postsecret page... it's an urban legend.

PostSecret is so full of trying-too-hard-ers.

its a photoshop merge of a lotus seed pod and a breast...I have seen it before but it still gives me the heebie jeebies
posted by meeshell 23 November | 12:15
the lotus seed + breast thing positivly screams photoshop to me, and thus does not give me heebie-jebbies.

If that were a real rash that boob would be all red and swollen.

That lotus thing is old but I can still barely stand to think about it. *shiver*

I breast with maggots? bb gun shots? I didn't spend too long looking at it, but if it's meant to be holes or something, it fails badly, IMHO. I thought it was a load of piercings or something. It looked all kinds of fake, so I just moved on.
posted by TheDonF 23 November | 14:12
yeah, not so scary here. I'd likeo to see 'shop that image so little bunnies are popping out of the holes.

I think there's an actual phobia name for this, isn't there? Something about certain kinds of visual patterns? I wish I could recall what I've read about it. I know that pic gives me chills that are almost physical.

Aha... trypophobia. Googling phobia lotus breast brought up a bunch of results.
posted by loiseau 23 November | 14:21
Aaargh. I didn't think it would bother me, I know it's only a photoshop, and I don't even have breasts... but my skin is still crawling from the lotus-seed-breast thing.

Maybe it's all the eczema I had as a child.

I was tempted to go have a look by the people here saying it's not so bad. They are very, very wrong.

Very creepy. I have dreams not unlike this.
posted by DarkForest 23 November | 15:49
I saw that last night and I couldn't figure out what it was. Didn't give it a second thought. Now I'm grossed out.
posted by ThePinkSuperhero 23 November | 15:58
loiseau: there's actually a NAME for that condition?! Here I thought I was just being bizarre!

A friend on LJ has an animated version of that. ANIMATED. urgh.
posted by divabat 23 November | 16:23
Ok, well this convinced me not to search for it. Hopefully I won't run across this accidentally, like I did with goatse. *shudders*
posted by desjardins 23 November | 18:06
Yeah, I was totally grossed out when I first saw it last night, though I knew it was fake, and I've tried to avoid thinking about it. Eww.
posted by unsurprising 23 November | 19:53
Uhm, I watched the real live maggots removed from boobies video in teh Snopes link without being terribly grossed out so my gross-out-o-meter is probably broken. (I was more fascinated, maybe I should have been a doctor)
posted by dabitch 24 November | 06:49
Is this something I would have to have boobies to be grossed out about?
posted by kyleg 24 November | 10:21
It's one of those photos that you'll be glad to have seen the once, when you can sufficiently prepare yourself, so that you aren't stunned into catatonia when you encounter it accidentally.

Sorry, regular Postsecret users! Hope you snap out of it soon!
