Today’s WTF moment in the news comes out of Austria. Appearantly a man in Orlea, southern Romania ended up pretty constipated and took a unique set of steps to deal with it.
Dr Cristina Bontescu, spokeswoman for the local hospital where he turned up at the emergency unit, said: “He was a bit drunk and said he had been eating cherries that had left him badly constipated. He said he had a few drinks to dull the pain and then came up with the idea of poking a hammerhead up his backside in the hope of sorting out the constipation.“But the hammerhead got stuck and then he came up with the idea of using a second hammerhead in order to try and get out the first – but then he lost the second one as well.”
The doctors ended up having to surgically remove the hammer heads. It just goes to show that sometimes being anal-retentive really can be a hazzard to your health. [Heavy metal cure for constipation]
