      Are you kidding me? Truth really is stranger than fiction. And funnier.

        I thought this was going to be about David Newman again.

          Oh My.  Our daughter when she was 2 or so had stuck a small object up her nose which isn't completely uncommon.  Had to go to the ER to get it removed.

              Last night a prisoner cracked my hardened enured indifferences born of 30 years working in ER.  A self-mutilator, he had carved a fistula through his ant. abd. wall into proximal small bowel.  The undigested cole slaw and corn from lunch were egressing onto his lap. Predictably he complained about the pain from  removing the tape over  absorbent dressings.

                That is indeed impressive.

                  Saw a psychiatric patient recently who somehow managed to shove a toothbrush up his nose (brush end first), through his cribiform plate and into the contralateral frontal lobe of his brain!  He was just sitting there with about 1-2 inches of the handle still hanging out of his nostril.  Needless to say he went on to develop some pretty nasty brain abscesses after it was removed.

                    A few years ago, I saw a guy in the ER whose girlfriend tried to shoot him up with heroin but couldn't find a vein. She then tried to shoot it in his penis and lost the needle in there. When I came in to introduce myself and my specialty, he said "how did you get into this, man? That's a weird profession." Real rich. Coming from a guy with a needle in his ************************.

                      Wow, and for years I thought "needle ************************" had an entirely different meaning.

                      Bi guess my winner during my years of er practice was a rectal can of Pepsi. I could understand a bottle, but a can? I heard the can was punctured during the surgical removal and it sprayed all over the o.r.
