If you thought Kim Kardashian's QuickTrim was bad, an Iowa woman recently bought a tapeworm on the Internet and ate it in a bid to lose weight.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, she got sick and went to the doctor, who was so stumped that he had to call the state health department for guidance.

The agency told the doctor to have his patient de-wormed by way of a special medication that kills the parasite. Yes ... he had a woman de-wormed.

Dr. Patricia Quinlisk, medical director at the Iowa Department of Public Health, recounted the incident in an e-mail to public-health workers Thursday.

The image of a mom breastfeeding while practicing yoga naked went viral awhile back. Now, the subject of that photo, Amy, is speaking out in its defense.

Amy tells BabyCenter that the photo was not staged, like many thought it was. She really does do this regularly, and unapologetically at that:

"The truth is we were living on a small community in Hawaii where our land was clothing optional and yoga was/is a necessity!" Amy said.

"I was just doin’ my daily flow when the little sweet pea came to sneak a suckle."

Amy said she chose a "simple life" in her 20s, focusing on what she believes are core values and traveling with minimal commitments.

Take note, THGers. Here is what we've learned about 911 this month:

Do not call if McDonald's messes up your order.

Do not call if the cable goes out, even during a Breaking Bad episode.

And do not call if you are in need of a pen, something New Hamphire resident Jeanie Dufresne discovered the hard way this week.

As explained in the following video, Dufresne angered an operator for making just such a request over the weekend, getting herself arrested for the THIRD TIME THIS MONTH for using 911 in an inappropriate manner.

The 66-year old told authorities each time that she just wanted someone to talk to. Darn. This story just went from funny to sad...

Former Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has broken some very personal news about himself:

He's gay.

The actor made this public reveal while simultaneously taken a stance against Russia's anti-homosexual legislation, which bans any sort of "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations."

In response to an invitation to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, Miller wrote a letter that has been posted on the GLADD website and which reads:

"Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I must decline."

Bradley Manning was sentenced on Wednesday to serve 35 years in a military prison for turning over more than 700,000 classified files to WikiLeaks.

It has been called the biggest breach of secret data in the nation's history.

Judge Colonel Denise Lind sentenced the 25-year-old low-level intelligence analyst to less time than the 60 years military prosecutors had sought.

Manning could have been given up to 90 years, some experts believed, but will be eligible for parole in a decade, after serving one-third of his term.

The motives of Michael Brandon Hill, the suspect in Tuesday's Georgia elementary school shooting, remain a mystery as officials try to establish what provoked him.

No one was hurt when Hill, 20, entered the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur, Ga., with an AK-47 assault-style rifle.

Authorities say Hill shot about six rounds at law enforcement personnel who raced to the school, but surrendered peacefully when they returned fire.

It wasn't his first alleged encounter with police officers. In December, Hill "threatened to shoot" his brother, Timothy Hill, Timothy told NBC News.

The threat was in December, just two weeks after the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., which left 26 people dead, 20 of whom were children.

We suppose this is at least a better reason to call 911 than your cable going out.

A Naples, Florida resident is under arrest today after his mother called the authorities to report that her son was keeping a baby alligator in her bathtub.

Sean Lewis, 45, was reportedly keeping an eye on the creature for a friend and created his own little aquarium in the bathroom, replete with a cinderblock for the animal to lie on and a lightbulb to serve as the sun.

After several days, however, Sean's mother grew irritated by the unwelcome guest and called 911 to have her kid booked on charges of alligator poaching.

You simply must listen to that 911 call in the following video:

A bus driver in Florida's Broward County School District incurred the wrath of parents after dropping seven children off Monday ... in the wrong city.

The students, ages 10-13, were supposed to be dropped off close to their homes, minutes away from Forest Glen Middle School in Coral Springs.

Instead, they were dropped off at a gas station in Pompano Beach - several cities and at least 20 minutes east - on their first day of school.

The students realized something was amiss, but to no avail. They reportedly told the bus driver that he was going the wrong way, but he did not stop.

Student Samantha Cisneros attempted to put her dad on the phone with him, but the driver said he could not talk while driving, according to NBC 6.

A teenage girl has been hospitalized after photos of her giving oral sex at an Eminem concert in Ireland last weekend exploded on the Internet.

Guy at Concert

The girl, who according to reports is 17, was shown on her knees giving fellatio, while the man receiving it raises his arms in a sign of victory (above).

We've cropped the image, but that's the photo in question. In a second photo, she is kissing the same man as he reaches up her skirt (below, also cropped).

In yet another, she appears to be giving oral sex to someone else.

The graphic pics quickly went viral, and the girl unwittingly became the latest target of brutal cyber-bullying, including with the hashtag #slanegirl.

Nicole Peate is a foodie.

But she's now saying "OWIE!" after the bite of something called the "Kids in America Burger."

The item is offered at Liverpool's Almost Famous and consists of three patties, pretzels and candied bacon, making the Taco Bell Waffle Taco sound appealing.

Crazy Burger

"I tried to eat it with a knife and fork and couldn't," Peate admitted to BBC. "I couldn't open my mouth fully—it felt like I had cramp in my tongue, then I started to get an earache and a headache.

"The next morning, I felt really, really ill. The whole side of my head was hurting, then it started to feel like it was in my jaw and I knew I'd dislocated it."
