Working in a hospital will undoubtedly mean nurses and doctors see some really odd injuries. You'd imagine, though, that none get as weird as sex toy related admissions.
Doctors at Wrexham Maelor Hospital in North Wales got what I'm assuming was a bit of a shock when a girl came to them with a vibrator stuck up her arse.
Emma Phillips, from Wallasey, Merseyside - the lovely place that's full of characters and I call home - pressed down on her stomach to find that her boyfriend Lee had hid the toy in her anus, still buzzing away.

"We were looking around the bed in case it had fallen out," the 24-year-old said. "When I leaned on my stomach I could feel it vibrating - it was stuck low down and at one point was even wedged behind my hip."
Of course, as I know all too well, those Woolybacks from across the Mersey are inventive folk, which Lee epitomised.
"He tried a kitchen fork handle, which we won't be using again, and said he could feel it at one point but that it was too far up - it was a goner," Emma said. "He tried barbecue prongs too but after a certain point - after an hour of trying - we knew we're going to have to go to hospital. We were both a bit shocked."
Luckily they saw the funny side (I don't think there's another side to it, to be honest) but did realise she needed medical help. Because they'd been drinking, neither of them could drive to the hospital, so they had to call an ambulance, which prompted a very awkward phone call.

The doctors took x-rays to see where the vibrating toy was - which is an x-ray I think we'd all like to see.
She was taken to have an operation, where a camera was placed down her throat and the surgeon pressed on her stomach before manually extracting it. MANUALLY. EXTRACTING. IT. She was asked if she wanted to keep the vibrator for future pleasure but she passed on the offer.
Her boyfriend Lee isn't actually too bothered by the whole ordeal, and is just having a laugh at his missus's expense.
She said: "Lee's not been scarred by it - he just thinks it's funny. I think he should have one up his bum and take one for the team."
It's a good thing that the pair could see the funny side, but I reckon it's never going to be a bedtime story for her two-year-old girl's birthday. Maybe an embarrassing, drunken story to tell on her 18th birthday.
