We’ve all heard tales of male athletes (most notably baseball players) injecting themselves with steroids, HGH or whatever in order to improve performance. Well, here in Tampa some ladies are ill from taking injections to improve something else. The women heard about Sharhonda L. Lindsay by word of mouth.
For $12.50 per injection, Lindsay would give them the buttocks boost they desired.
What they didn't count on: pain and suffering.
The women, Andrea Nicole Lee, 30, and Zakiya Thema Teagle, 33, have been hospitalized since Jan. 29 with internal injuries, Hillsborough sheriff's spokesman J.D. Callaway said.
Lee, he said, is in serious condition. She paid $500 for 40 injections. Teagle, he said, is stable. She paid $250 for 20.
Now sheriff's deputies are looking for Lindsay, 32, of 9827 Blue Palm Way.
I really need to get out more. It never occurred to me that A) women would want a bigger butt and B) they would let a complete stranger injected them in the rump with God-knows-what in order to get one. And if you wanted a bigger butt, wouldn’t a half gallon of Rocky Road be a cheaper and safer alternative?
At least Mark McGuire knew Jose Canseco when they were injecting roids in each other’s rears.
