When It Hurts To Laugh!

Where's the Joke?


Kong Lin, 27, was using a pair of scissors to clean his teeth after eating a meal when a friend told a pretty funny joke. Kong couldn't stop laughing and he ended up swallowing a pair of 4-inch scissors.



"A picture is worth a thousand words."







Apparently, Kong Ling tried to cough up the scissors but the points got stuck. He was rushed to a hospital in Putian, China where surgeons were able to extract the scissors in about 30 minutes. See Daily Mail for more.

Confucius Says - "Man who picks teeth with scissors while laughing at funny joke ends up as Joke!"

Intrepid Says - "I want to hear the joke that was so Funny it made him swallow 4-inch scissors."

Logic Says - "If he was using the pointed end to pick his teeth wouldn't the scissors be facing the other way? Downward?


(Don't let this happen to you!)

I like a lot what you write, but it makes it very hard to read the fact that the background is black, can you change this? Sorry to ask.

You sure Mr Lin was Chinese Mr I, not Irish??

Sometimes you feel that you have

All the wrong sort of air in your lungs

And you just want to cough it up.

That is pretty bad, but it could be worse, http://dickstersrandomthoughts.blogspot.com/2008/08/dont-try-this-at-home.html

And keep those screwdrivers out of your ears too!

Screwdrivers? I always thought you were supposed to use paperclips to clean out your ears. Those curved ends can really pick up the wax :-)

I hadn't had time to read about this, but saw the headline. OUCH!

Hmmm... is he still deciphering his way around Japan? Or did he wander back over to the Hawaiian Islands and accidentally on purpose lose his return ticket?

Jane Turley said...

Heather - I'm thinking he had another "car key" episode!

Heather Dugan ("Footsteps") said...

Jane,
I trust that you're prepared to paddle to the rescue if necessary? The waterproof survival kit should include dark chocolate...

Jane Turley said...

Heather - If chocolate is involved I'm prepared to tow him by his Speedos whilst he reclines on his back leisurely reading a newspaper and sipping Martini. The keys will be safely ensconced under my bath cap. (The one with with big rubbery flowers which matches my knitted costume.)

I feel the Love... You two are wonderful. Thanks for the support! (sent via morse code by an LED flash light from somewhere in the Carribean)

Heather Dugan ("Footsteps") said...

Well Jane... Thankfully, it appears he's not suffering too much. I'd still keep that bathing cap at the ready in case he suffers a sunscreen emergency.

Jane Turley said...

Good Heavens Heather! Do you think Mr I is lacking in the hair department? Let me imagine what he looks like wearing my bathing cap....hmmm... I'm visualizing Bruce Willis with rubbery flowers on his head... hmm that's kinda cute!

Oh gosh, now I can definately see the plot for a new Die Hard Movie...

A lavender bathing cap? Not quite my style but perhaps a good idea. A clever disguise!
