There are stories from 1970s Pakistan of a fetal messiah. A pregnant Indonesian woman traveled there, claiming her embryo to be a salvific imam. Charles Cameron relates one awesomely disturbing technological aspect:
[D]octors of Jinnah hospital, Karachi conducted an examination. The doctors recovered a small tape recorder from her womb. [emphasis added]
Another, "more plausible" account describes something a little different:
It was revealed that the holy woman was not even pregnant with an Azan-reciting messiah but had a recording device tied to her body.
A fine retro tale. Are there any similar digital stories?
