The internet, or at least some small corners of it, has been left utterly dumbstruck by the story of a woman who purportedly paid $20,000 to have a third breast attached.
"Why did she get it done? Is it real? Is it a hoax?" These are all questions that many people have been striving to answer.
In the beginning
There were two. Two breasts that is. But then there were three. Jasmine Tridevil (not her real name), appeared in a YouTube video showing off her spare 'boob' behind a specially-adapted bikini bra and made frequent posts on her Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Those videos prompted an interview on a local radio show, in Orlando, Florida last Tuesday - 16th September.
She told the Real Radio station that she spent $20,000 ("every penny I have") to get the surgery done so she could both appear "less attractive to men" and on a reality TV show.
Tridevil said she had asked about 50 doctors to perform the surgery and none of them would agree as it would be a breach of ethics. However, one surgeon eventually relented, on the condition that she sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Then there's also the fact that medical professionals would have to carry out a psychological assessment of someone before carrying out such a surgery.
What happened next
Although Jasmine was emphatic in her interview with The Sun, telling the paper: "This is not a fake." and even claimed that she may get her two pre-existing breasts reduced to fall in line with the middle one.
