We’ve all done stupid things when we’re drunk I guess, written texts to former flames, gotten into the stupidest of bets with friends or taken on ‘truth or dare’ questions which we really shouldn’t have.
But when it comes to stupid, this Chinese man in Nanchang University hospital claims the prize.
In the video, you can see doctors managing to remove an eel that had gotten stuck up his anus as he was drunk. Firstly we would like to know what he was drinking, secondly, we would like to know how anyone manages to get that animal stuck up your ass.
The 40-year old came into the hospital complaining of severe abdominal pain and was taken in for X-rays when the doctors found the eel had already gotten up to his stomach. The swamp eel, which is a delicacy in coastal China, was drugged and eventually removed from the man’s body (who is now recovering in hospital).
The performing surgeons stated that they believe the eel was inserted up his anus deliberately but even though they know the whole story they have so far refused to share it with the outside world not to shame the poor man too much.
China has a reputation when it comes to extracting eels from human backsides apparently.
Just in April of this year, a 49-year-old Mr Liu had a similar eel removed from his anus which he had put there “to cure constipation.”
This happened in South China’s Guangdong Province.
And in May, a man from the Sichuan Province in south-western China was treated in a similar case, but there the eel had been inserted by friends of his as a practical joke.
