Sometimes people find themself in the occurred situation because they try to do things out of common. In this article, we share with you some funny stories from around the world with objects stuck in people's anus. Please don't try this at home because you might end up at the ER and feel embarrassed.
Here are 5 funny stories about some kitchen objects stuck in people's rectum.
- Not Just for Rice Anymore
In Korean culture, some believe that one should never place chopsticks directly into a receptacle, like a bowl, in order to prop up the chopsticks. Such an act signifies death. No wonder North and South Korea always seem so stressed out. This individual had no problem sticking his chopsticks anywhere. In fact, he may have been directly taunting death by risking an intestinal tear or infection by putting these in his receptacle. While the chopsticks in this image are metal, chopsticks are typically made of bamboo or plastic, and, at times, bone, ivory, or wood. An August 2007 article on the China Daily Web site reported that the secretary-general of the China Cuisine Association (CCA) said that China produced and disposed of more than 45 billion pairs of wooden chopsticks annually. The secretary-general estimated that this practice cost the Chinese environment approximately 25 million trees. We’re not sure what percentage of chopsticks is used for the purpose demonstrated in this X-ray, but hopefully those chopsticks are not reused afterward. That would certainly give new meaning to the word, Pu Pu platter.
2. Someone Switched This Patient’s Usual Cup of Coffee with …
We’ve seen plenty of bottles stuck up patients’ rears, but not nearly as many cups, even though they both hold liquids. This is not surprising given the shape of each. Images like the one in the accompanying X-ray naturally make people wonder if a cup can even get all the way up there. Doesn’t the object seem much bigger than the pathway? Basic biomechanics provides the answers here. Most skin and mucosa have certain viscoelastic properties, meaning that with enough pressure and time, one can fit surprisingly large objects through a relatively small, yet viscoelastic, space. Now you know how babies are born! Obviously, this property is finite. There is still a limit as to how large an object can ultimately fit without causing a tear or damage. We’re not sure what the record is, but we’ll continue to keep track of people who try to set it.
3. Which Fork Does Etiquette Suggest You Use Here?
For utensils to be useful for handling food, they must belong and easy to grip. This feature also makes them great for other activities, too. Often, picking the right utensil for specific use can be a difficult task. For purposes such as this, a knife is obviously too sharp and may cause damage, while a spoon could potentially be too dull and thereby not as stimulating. Goldilocks would have probably made the same choice, assuming she did not have any mental issues after having to run for her life from three talking bears. We think a slightly safer choice would have been a spork, although sporks are often hard to come by as they are typically used only by children, who are far too smart to do this. The more important consideration would be the composition of the silverware. Although worse for the environment, we would hope that people choose plastic, disposable utensils for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, this patient and most others choose stainless steel, probably for durability and easy handling. Or per- haps they finally found a reason to break out the fine china. Ultimately, you could summarize this case by saying that when this patient reached for a fork, he took it on the road less traveled, and that made all the difference.
4. Pain in the Glass
The comedian Janeane Garofalo once quipped, “I guess I just prefer to see the dark side of things. The glass is always half empty. And cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth.” Sadly, the accidental ingestion of small pieces of glass is no laughing matter. One patient, while eating a shrimp and rigatoni dinner at his favorite restaurant, suddenly felt severe pain in his throat, followed later by chest pain. After he completed his meal—yes, after—the patient went to the ER, where the physician dis- covered glass in the patient’s bowels and perforation of the patient’s esophagus. These injuries ultimately healed. The patient asked the restaurant to reimburse him his $200 co-pay for the hospitalization, to which the restaurant agreed. We were surprised by this, considering that when we see physician procedures cause perforations, patients typically ask for far more than their co-pay. In this case, he might have at least also asked for a gift certificate for a free meal … at another restaurant.
5. A Fishy Story
It’s the same old story. A patient once explained that he spent a relaxing day fishing in the ocean. He brought his knife along to cut some bait and clean fish. He then continued the story by saying, “I was fishing, and I must have fallen asleep and rolled around on the ground where the knife was. Next thing I knew, I had this knife in me.” Yet another falling asleep fishing and rolling onto a knife story. If you’ve heard one, you’ve heard them all. What not everyone has heard of is how dangerous fish can truly be because of all sorts of special bacteria that come with fish. The bacteria can even spread to and infect the brain, which may be the true reason fish is known as brain food. In fact, seafood comes with so many health risks that if we were to review them all it might make you the opposite of a pescatarian, a person who avoids eating most animals but will eat fish. So someone might conclude from the above that if you want to win the fight against a health problem, perhaps you should have lots of cases that scare people. Maybe after this book we will actually see fewer cases of inserted or ingested foreign bodies … though knowing human nature, quite possibly not.
