Yes, it's back. Didn't think you'd get away with three weeks without a Fuckwit making an appearance now did you?
It's a well known fact that kids love to see what will fit up their nose. I once tried putting a corkscrew up the dog's nose but had the good sense to leave my own well enough alone. My nephew firmly lodged a pea that was only discovered three weeks later when his rancid breath began to raise suspicions and my other nephew managed to have his eardrum pierced by his big sister who decided poking a pencil in the offending orifice to see if it would emerge on the other side might be fun.
A toddler in China went a little further.
According to the boy's mother, the toddler, Li Jingchao, age 14 months, was playing with the chopsticks in the family kitchen and wedged one clear up his nasal passage and into his brain.
Turned away by the small local hospitals that we not prepared with technology or equipment to safely remove the chopstick, Li's parents had to drive 10 hours north to Beijing to receive treatment for their little guy.
Fortunately, despite the neurosurgeons' concern that removal of the chopstick could lead to internal hemorrhaging once removed, causing possible paralysis or even death, there was very little bleeding after doctors extracted the implement from Li's brain and an ensuing infection was his only serious side effect and is being successfully treated with antibiotics.
Apparently the doctors in Beijing were not surprised by Li's incident. They have extensive experience removing chopsticks from eyes, foreheads and necks. (Foreheads! That's some force required to stick a chopstick through yer noggin!)
At least you can't blame a toddler for not reading the instructions:
Makes my mother's advice to go and play on the motorway with a bread knife seem rather complex. She could have just given me a chopstick!
What unusual implement have you stuck where it doesn't belong? Keep it clean . . I might be fond of the 'magic' word but this is a family friendly site!
Well my leave is officially over and access to you and the internet will depend on the constraints of work and life generally. It's been a grand 2 weeks on all networking media and I've thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't feel left out if I don't post or visit as frequently, I'll catch up eventually. Have a great weekend folks. Hot weather is forecast for us so I might finally have my second dip of the season . . .under cover of darkness of course, you never know when those Greenpeace fanatics might be lurking and attempt to rehabilitate me into the wide open ocean!
