Corruption is so systemic in Zimbabwe, one of Africa’s poorest countries, that a local hospital charges mothers-to-be $5 every time they scream while giving birth. That’s according to an extensive new report from Transparency International on corruption around the world, which also notes that a staggering 62 percent of Zimbabweans say they’ve paid a bribe in the past year.

it's a shame they don't use the same system on tennis players.

You got that right! Maybe $3.99 a scream, but $5 dollars? Come oooooonn!


Seriously though, if they're gonna do that crap, the women giving birth ought to charge the doctor for delivering the baby. In this way, they can make their money back.

I'd charge the doctors more for just being ignorant.
