Fucking hell, I hope this isn't real.
I hope, like that fake David Schwimmer post, it's just a hoax designed to provoke people like myself. Nothing more.
If it is real, then I'm not sure where to start.
This video, believed to have been taken in China, shows doctors removing a live eel from the body of a patient,
I'll let you watch first and we'll re-group after.
How about that then? Did you feel like I made a big deal out of it, or did you stop halfway and turn to your co-worker and say 'ah, fuck that'?
The man, 49, had been treating his constipation with folk remedies rather than over the counter prescriptions like anybody else would.
One of these remedies included inserting an eel up his arse.
He originally told doctors that the eel had swam up inside him. Pull the other one, mate.
Presumably right as rain now, the man did suffer a punctured pancreas during the whole ordeal.
'Yuck did it just slip in and got sucked up?' one commenter asked. 'Poor eel what a shock it must have been to see where it was going and are they not slippery and wriggly so how did he manage it? Maybe he put some bait up there to lure it lol.'
Another said: 'If you're constipated the how the ell can you get an eel up there? A normal person would take laxettes or prune juice, not abuse an innocent animal.'
One person focused more on the animal than the man, saying: "Be glad for the eel...It must be feeling a whole lot better after being found dead in THERE...I realise it is dead but anything would have to feel better after that...You could be forgiven for thinking so.'
The moral of the story: don't ever, under any circumstance, put a live eel up your bum. Even if it means saving all your family's lives. Just say no, guys.
