In a story sure to provide nightmare fuel for the ages, an unnamed man in China’s city of Guangzhou decided on a quite unconventional approach to remedying his constipation.  Having heeded “the word on the street”  he inserted a half-meter long eel up the Back Nine.  A reminder:  eels have pointed jaws, sharp teeth & move in waves which makes them very efficient at moving through sand, mud & pebbles.  The one removed by surgeons from this man’s stomach had a head the size of a ping pong ball.  How much intestinal material do you think this thing had to slither through & damage before it reached his STOMACH?  According to said dumbfounded surgeons, this thing had made “a mess”of the guy’s abdominal cavity & they were amazed he survived.  Guess who’s going to add a LOT more fiber to his diet?
