The corpse has to be completely taken out of the ground, out of the casket and then jumped over. Anything less and it won’t work.

Today’s story could easily fit the bill of a Genius Idea Friday segment, if it simply were not so sad.

Rural Egypt has the cure to infertility, and it includes digging up the dead.

The recipe to having a bouncing bundle of joy takes digging up a body and jumping over it 7 times. We could be flippant and say, “6 times and you’ll only miss a period,” but Egyptian women are actually paying off cemetery guards to do this in hopes of increasing their odds to have children.

Really. These bribes are turning into big business for those taking the nightshift.

Of course, it is not all dead bodies when it comes to boosting fertility.

If you aren’t sold on corpse moving, in Egypt, you might also be prescribed a rolling-around-on-rocks method, where you get a pile of jagged rocks and roll on them clockwise 7 times to increase your fertility.

Again, it has to be 7 times. An extra one or two rolls won’t help your chances of getting pregnant.

What say you, PDers? How long do you think it will be until Obamacare starts designating graveyards to use, or rocks with extra sharp edges?
