Irony, thy name is (wo)men

Near the end of this article, comes this odd bit of news which they rightly label...


We were also captivated by the unusual in 2004. In Britain a man sued a hospital and a surgeon claiming he had gone in for a heart operation and came out 'gay'.

The patient, whose name was not released, entered Leeds General Infirmary for a heart-by-pass operation. During the surgery doctors had to take out part of a large vein in his leg to replace a section of blocked artery in his chest.

To get to the vein, the surgeons made an incision in his leg, but failed to notice the tattoo the man had on his leg that declared "I love women".

As he came out of the anesthesia, the heart operation a success, he noticed the scar on his leg.

When doctors had sewn it up, the inadvertently left out two letters on the tattoo. It now says "I love men".
