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.
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?
