China- A man was hospitalized after trying a bizarre home remedy.
If you're constipated, one of the foods you can try is eggplant--it's high in fiber, water, and antioxidants. Unfortunately, it seems like this dude GROSSLY misinterpreted that advice.
He told the doctors he thought the vegetable could act as a laxative to increase his bowel movement. However, instead of eating it...he inserted it into his rectum. The 12-inch eggplant ended up going up along his intestines before getting lodged in his upper abdomen.
An x-ray also showed that the eggplant had gotten stuck in a diagonal position, which caused inflammation in the patient's lungs. The man underwent surgery and had the vegetable removed whole. [Daily Mail]
On the bright side...at least he wasn't trying to pleasure himself...
