Headline That Made Me Want To KMS

This morning, whilst scanning through my usual RSS feeds, CNN managed to throw another news curveball my way, by means of a catchy headline: Surgeons remove healthy kidney through donor's vagina.

Um, first off OUCH! Secondly, the article contains many WTF moments:

-"Removing the kidney through a natural opening should hasten the patient's recovery and provide a better cosmetic result," Montgomery said. (cnn.com)
Cosmetic result?? What does that even mean? OUCH!

-"If you asked our patient, she said it was like getting a tooth removed." (cnn.com)
OWWW! What a horrible analogy. Let me go die now.

*Writer's note: KMS = kill myself
