Hauling Like A Brooligan
ugh! this image i will not be able to rid in my head all day now!
Is the world ready for Holby City Uncensored?
Lurking somewhere on the net is a forum for A&E workers where they swap stories of the bizarre insertions they've encountered, and the patients' explanations for same… not an urban legend, I fell across it in a Google search one time and have never seen it since.
But how vividly I remember one nurse's account of the bloke who came in with an empty jam jar wedged up his arse, and how they got it out…
The process involved sliding a stick into the jar and then piping wet plaster of paris in to set it into place. Once the plaster had set, they were able to use the stick as a handle and work the jar out.
One drawback for the patient. As plaster of paris sets, it generates heat…
Oh dear! I wonder what kind of novel/story/screenplay you must be researching now, Steve, to have turned up such information during your research! 😉
It was an innocent search for “gas explosions”, honest.
It certainly wasn’t the kind of gas explosion I was looking for…
Looks like you’ve found a plot for the season finale for THE ELEVENTH HOUR. 🙂
It probably won’t surprise you to learn HOUSE used this phenomenon as an element in one episode.
