Heavy Metal Cure for Constipation

48-year old Viorel Firoiu of Orlea, Romania, admits he was drunk when he tried to cure his constipation by sticking a hammer in his rectum. He went to a hospital where x-rays revealed not one, but two hammerheads inside!
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 hammerheads had to be removed surgically. http://www.austriantimes.at/image/7802/news/Around_the_World/2009-07-22/14921/Heavy_metal_cure_for_constipation

I'm both relieved and grateful that he didn't appear to use any CLAW hammers. No way you gettin' one of those out except with a scalpel.

But hey, he's got a great story to tell.

I agree Miss Cellania. The people who do these things to themselves might as well just tell the truth as to what really happened. It's more embarrassing to make up a story that's worse than the truth than to just tell the truth.

Anyone who has worked in an ER will tell you, they've heard every kind of explanation. Remember the priest who said he was hanging curtains in the nude and fell backward on the counter and that's why the potato was up there? In all honesty, there are only two reasons people put strange objects up their butt: 1. sexual stimulation, and 2. smuggling.

I agree with Frau and Geekazoid. This had nothing to do with constipation. Both of my brother-in-laws have worked ER and said you wouldn't believe the stuff men stick up their butts! I have never heard of women doing this. It's a weird fetish of some kind and men make up the most unbelievable excuses/explanations when they get them stuck and have to have them removed. Geesh.
