Alison Brierley is preparing to welcome a new life into this world by feeding herself creatures that have just violently left it. But before you go calling this British mother-to-be some kind of deranged hillbilly nutjob, ask yourself, ladies: Is this any weirder than craving peanut butter and pickles? What's that you say? It's much weirder? And we should shut the hell up because we have never and will never know what it's like to carry a human being inside us? And stop calling you "ladies"? OK, valid points.
