Today's blog was going to be about the escalation in 'Eastern' Europe - The Yanks having refused to ratify the Arms Control Treaty, the Russkies don't see why they alone should abide by it now.
Does this seem a coincidence considering the news this week that the Japs have agreed to pay in Euros for their Iranian oil?
Let's just hope so.
Still, worrying stuff.
So, rather than make you all miserable, a little bit of a Horror Story from the medical journals.
But be warned - you might be miserable if you are very fat and like putting strange objects up the chimney.
As we know, not all American women are like Baywatch Babes.
Anyone seen the zapper for the TV?
'500 lb. woman from Illinois was examined in the hospital.
During the examination, an asthma inhaler fell from under her
armpit, a dime was found under one of her breasts, and a remote
control was found lodged between the folds of her vulva.'
What can you say?
Kinky or Perverted - ya pays yer money.
Bum burner or suicide bummer?
'A World War II veteran came into a London clinic with a
hemorrhoid problem. One painful pile would often hang down from the man's anus and he was in the habit of pushing it back up with an artillery shell. On this occasion, the shell got stuck.
Doctors were going to remove it but the man told them the shell
was still live. So the hospital called in the army bomb disposal
squad, who built a lead box around the man's anus to defuse the
shell so it could be removed.'
