Man Stunned After Pulling 17ft 'Alien' Tapeworm From His Anus
A man in Thailand was stunned when he realised the cause of his stomach pain was a 17ft tapeworm - which he had to pull from his rear end. You can watch footage of the writhing worm here, you depraved beast:
Duangchan Dachyoddee had been suffering from stomach ache on Monday at his home in Nakhon Sawan, in the northeast of the country - so he plonked himself down on the toilet, as you do.
But the 34-year-old was alarmed when he felt something moving against his skin, and when he looked between his legs, he saw the long, yellow worm stretching down into the water.
The discovery scared the s*** out of Duangchan, who shot up from the toilet. At this point, he realised the creature was hanging from you know where.
The taxi driver proceeded to tug the worm from his back passage, eventually removing all 17ft (five metres) of it.
Duangchan said he thought the derriere-dweller was an 'alien'.
He said: ''I couldn't believe how long it was. I kept pulling and it was still stuck in my bottom. When the whole worm came out I measured it and it was five metres long.

"I thought it was an alien. It was disgusting. That thing had been living inside me for a long time.''
Duangchan took the parasite to the doctor, with medics identifying it as a beef tapeworm, or taenia saginata.
They told him that it came from eating raw meat, which isn't too surprising given that his favourite meal is 'Key Neua', a spicy raw beef salad dish that is popular in the Isan region of northeastern Thailand.
The eggs of the tapeworm are believed to have been in the raw meat, which subsequently hatched in Duangchan's intestines. As such, medics have warned him that there is likely to be more of the stomach squatters inside his gut, but they have prescribed medication to kill them off.
Duangchan isn't best pleased by the thought of more worms living it up inside of him, however, he has at least been feeling a lot better since he got the big boy out of him.
He said: "My stomach has felt better since the big one came out. But I still feel a bit sick knowing that there are more worms inside me.
"The doctors said it would be a few days before I start feeling better."
