Look Ma! I Skewered a Ship Through My Mouth!

From the website:

A Thai man carries a model of a ship,by a skewer through his cheeks, while participating in a parade during the vegetarian festival in Phuket, Thailand, October 28, 2006.

What? How is this connected to a Vegetarian festival? Link

If you actually bothered checking what the Phuket Vegetarian Festival is all about you'd understand the connection. While I do have a problem with using the wording "self-torture" this page is a good read to demystify and explain what the festival is all about (and how the cheek skewering and other body rituals are only a part of the whole): http://www.phuketvegetarian.com/phuketvegetarian-eng/phuketvegetarian-history.htm
