back to article NZ bloke gets eel stuck up jacksie

A New Zealand hospital refused to speculate last week on just how one patient managed to get an eel stuck up his backside. According to the New Zealand Herald, the unnamed bloke walked, or perhaps slithered, into Auckland City Hospital's A&E department in need of an urgent jacksie eel extraction. A swift X-ray and scan …

Eel meet again

Let's say goodbye with a smile dear,

Just for awhile dear, we must part

Don't let this parting upset you,

I'll not forget you, sweetheart,

Eel meet again,

Don't know where,don't know when.

But I know Eel meet again, some sunny day.

Keep smiling through ,

Just like you always do,

Till the blue skies chase those dark clouds, far away.

But I know Eel meet again. some sunny day

Eel meet again, don't know where, don't know when. but I know Eel meet again, some sunny day. Keep smiling through , just like you always do, till the blue skies chase the dark clouds, far away.

And I will just say hello,

To the folks that you know,

Tell them you won't be long,

They'll be happy to know that as I saw you go

You were singing this song.

Eel meet again,

Don't know where, dont know when.

But I know Eel meet again, some sunny day.

"The eel was about the size of a decent sprig of asparagus"

Re: "The eel was about the size of a decent sprig of asparagus"

It was only when they described the eel in terms of the size of a piece of asparagus that I fully understood. It's the only measuring system I know.

Re: "The eel was about the size of a decent sprig of asparagus"

Yes, I originally pictured it as being the size of an under-developed sprig of asparagus. Knowing, as I do now, that it was actually the size of a decent sprig changes my whole outlook on this story.

Re: "The eel was about the size of a decent sprig of asparagus"

Sounds to me like the Asparagus is a standard measurement for doctors extracting foreign objects from human orifices. Probably along with the Banana, Gerbil and Cucumber.

"Say Pete, could you give me hand with a 2.5 Asparagus patient?" Cue smirks from medical employees and puzzled looks from nearby civvies.

It's always a laugh

going for a drink with some A&E doctors ... best two I heard of was a guy who turned up with a raincoat, and as he was trying to book in, muffle the woofs from under the raincoat - somehow a dog had bitten and wouldn't let go.

And I never understood how a lightbulb could get up there without breaking ....

Someone's Been Watching Too Much Genki Porn

A friend who works in A&E once told this kind of thing is pretty common. Well not eels, but bars of soap and dildos after someone "slipped in the shower"...

Re: Someone's Been Watching Too Much Genki Porn

Aww... c'mon: Don't rag on the guy. It was clearly a genuine accident.

Clearly an eel climbed onto his loo-roll. The guy didn't see it was there when he tore some off for a wipe, and then - mid-scrape- the thing just slipped on in there.

Clearly this kind of accident could happen to anyone. It's unfair to simply assume that he wanted his prostate tickled.

Re: Someone's Been Watching Too Much Genki Porn

According to one nurse, patients often give the story "I was getting out of the bath, when I slipped and fell on X and it went up my..." only to tell a different as the aesthetic kicks in before the procedure to remove the foreign object. The only bloke who stuck to his story when going under had a tennis ball (?!) stuck where it shouldn't be.

Re: Someone's Been Watching Too Much Genki Porn

Yes, I knew an A&E doctor once. He had dozens of them.

...had to change my trousers and sat on a crate of cucumbers whilst doing so, which broke under my weight...

...sat down in the bath rather suddenly unaware that the extra fizzy bath bomb hadn't completely dissolved...

...accidentally fell onto the (designer slimline) shower head, which had to be unscrewed as it wouldn't come out without tearing...

But the one that took the biscuit was the guy who needed a parsnip removed. His excuse?

"I shoved it up my arse for a cheap thrill, OK?"

The sixth Google suggestion to the search 'What does an eel' gives: What does an eel do?

I'm more worried about, "Have students write and illustrate their own stories about an eel," depending on how many young students have read THIS story.

Hey, there's got to be some weirdo on the internet who'd find that erotic. If Rule 34 says "there is always porn of it", there ought to be another rule that says "and somebody is fapping to it".

Re: 'This has to be a first', admits hospital insider

Pretty sure I read about this happening to a guy in China some years ago - in Private Eye's "Funny Old World" section (so may not be true).

However, the circumstances were a bit different. He was a cook and had got massively drunk with his "buddies". After he passed out they thought it would be a jolly jape to stick a spare live eel up his fundament. Unfortunately this eel was bigger than the one in NZ and had teeth. Neither eel nor human survived.
