A woman has swallowed $7,000 in a bid to hide her money during a fight with her husband.

The unnamed woman reportedly ingested rolls of $100 bills, according to surgeons who removed the money from her stomach.

After surgery was completed, the woman spoke to Colombian news station RCN, where she revealed the money had been saved up for a vacation she was planning with her husband, which she had to sell several electrical household items to be able to afford.

Surgeons were able to remove 57 $100 bills from the woman's stomach, and Juan Paulo Serrano, director of surgery at the University Hospital of Santander in Spain, said the majority of the bills were extracted through a gastronomy through the stomach.

Juan also claimed the remaining bills would need to be passed through the woman's colon.

And the surgeon says that because the bills were not wrapped or packaged in any way, it is unlikely the woman was carrying them for any kind of illicit transport, and instead believes it was simply an "act of desperation".

A man living with a full-sized 16-stone pig thought he was buying a micropig.

Pathadon Taesankul from Bangkok met the adorable piglet at a wholesale market near his home, and instantly formed a bond with the farm animal after the shop owner assured him the black and white creature was a pygmy pig and wouldn't increase in size all that much.

The 25-year-old hardware store owner parted with around PS70 for the piglet, and after bringing the new pet home to his wife, the pair decided to call it Junior, because of its small size.

However, eight months later the couple are now living with a full-sized 16-stone farmyard animal after it turned out the little piglet wasn't a pygmy at all.

Pathadon and his wife still love their pet pig though, and say the animal is "really intelligent" and wouldn't dare let him go.

Pathadon told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Junior is really intelligent and knows when it is time to 'go to work' and when it's time to go to bed.

"Many people come to my shop just to see Junior. Although I wouldn't have bought him if I knew he would get this big, I couldn't let him go now. He's part of the family we love him."

A Tesco shopper has been left horrified after she found a rude message printed on a hot cross bun.

Lisa Sheehan was shopping for the seasonal treat at her local supermarket in Sheerness, Kent, when she found the particularly crude bun which was marked with the words 'I want your sex'.

The shocked shopper immediately took a snap of the X-rated bun which was found in the Bridge Road store last Tuesday - and put it on Twitter, where she claimed the sight put her off eating the fruit bread snack.

She wrote: "Shocked to find this at the bakery in Tesco Sheerness! Put me right off my teacakes!!! (sic)"

The supermarket chain has since responded to Lisa's shocking discovery, claiming the fault lies with an employee who got "too creative" during their last day on the job.

A spokesperson for the store said: "One of our colleagues was a little too creative in the bakery on their last day in store. This item was not intended for sale and we are sorry for any offence caused."

Scientists have claimed that men often think they are right due to high levels of testosterone.

Behavioural scientists at Caltech in Pasadena have reportedly discovered that the stereotypical male trait of stubbornness comes from the hormone testosterone, causing them to make "snap judgements".

Colin Camerer, a scientist who worked on the study, told Elite Daily: "What we found was the testosterone group was quicker to make snap judgements on brain-teasers where your initial guess is usually wrong. The testosterone is either inhibiting the process of mentally checking your work or increasing the intuitive feeling that 'I'm definitely right'."

In order to reach their conclusion, scientists gave one set of participants extra testosterone and one set received none, before giving them a series of math problems to solve.

The results showed those with extra levels of the hormone got 20 per cent fewer correct answers.

They also answered their questions in less time than the other test group, and took longer to arrive at the correct answer once they were told they were wrong.
