December 1, 2007: Bottle X-ray

From Reuters:



Reuters provides the following:

Quote:
An x-ray of a glass bottle lodged in a man's lower abdomen is seen at the Nishtar hospital in Multan November 21, 2007. A 60-year-old man came to the hospital to have the Pepsi bottle removed, which he said armed thieves had inserted in his anus before robbing him of two buffalos, Dr. Abdul Manan, a surgeon at the hospital, said.
The Web confirms that the hospital exists, and is in Pakistan.

Years ago I stumbled upon a page of x-rays of men with foreign objects stuffed up their butts. It was an actual medical page, not what you might think. I've wished a few times I still had that link. Funny stuff.

This is the wtf part!


ZenGum  Friday Nov 30 01:56 PM

Complete bastards to do that with a Pepsi bottle.
Don't they know that (buffalo) wings go better with Coke???

Or...

He paid the armed (with a Pepsi bottle?) men two buffaloes to have it stuck up there, and is now suffering (really suffering) from a severe case of buyer's remorse.


lookout123  Friday Nov 30 03:30 PM

wait, wait. this was the plot line for a victim in one of the law and order or other cop shows quite awhile back. man humiliated by having pop bottle jammed up his butt by some guys in a bar after they robbed him.



LJ  Friday Nov 30 05:16 PM

didn't that happen to ray leota's character from goodfellas?
....


henry hill!



Cloud  Friday Nov 30 05:43 PM

oh, sure, the ol' buffalo excuse!



Cicero  Friday Nov 30 05:59 PM

See? People that prefer Pepsi suck!



Elspode  Friday Nov 30 07:30 PM

Having things rammed up your ass is generally frowned upon in Pakistan, so he probably gave them the animals to keep 'em quiet after the fun was over.

That had to hurt



Cloud  Friday Nov 30 11:52 PM

how can we be sure the person is not merely holding a bottle in front?

(kinda stupid question, I'm sure--I can't even tell independently if it's a male or female pelvis)

But I can tell my left from my right! Uh . . . sorta.



Sheldonrs  Saturday Dec 1 03:43 AM

Sort of a pre-frontal low bottle me. lol!!!



Cloud  Saturday Dec 1 10:55 AM

bad boy. bad, bad, boy!



ZenGum  Saturday Dec 1 11:00 AM

Good one Shels, I can't ... cap ... that.



BobT  Saturday Dec 1 11:01 AM

Holy COW

no...not cow...BUFFALOS!!!!

"had inserted in his anus before robbing him of two buffalos "

How about "I wonder if it was a cherry coke?" That's why they call it POP!


ZenGum  Saturday Dec 1 11:08 AM

The whole thing was caused by the robbers imitating some badly misunderstood movie dialogue.

"You mother-copulater, I am going to cap some pop in your ass!"


EDIT Dammit Sheldon, you spoiled my joke by one lousy minute!

Maybe he misunderstood the old "I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy" thing. You know: I'd rather have a bottle inside of me...

love it.


Cloud  Saturday Dec 1 10:18 PM

I would like to point out, that as much fun as we are having with this, that this must have been the result of a horrific assault (assuming the news story is accurate), and that the theft of two buffalos, as funny as it sounds to us, may have deprived this person of most of his net worth, and the ability to harvest his fields, leaving the person broken and destitute.



Bryden  Saturday Dec 1 11:59 PM

But can he get back the 5 cent deposit on the bottle?



tw  Sunday Dec 2 12:18 AM

What ever happened to Jerry Pentacoli and his gerbels?



Pie  Sunday Dec 2 12:41 AM

(Sorry, Cloud, I guess you'll have to be disillusioned by the rest of the dwellars.)



Cloud  Sunday Dec 2 01:00 AM

yeah, y'all are just soooo sensitive!

Kumbulu  Sunday Dec 2 04:46 AM

There are a few things on this x-ray that don't look right or even human (apart from the bottle, obviously). There's a straight line and other unusual shapes that shouldn't be there.



It almost looks as if they've left the bottle in the Pepsi carton it came in, then x-rayed it on top of the man's stomach.



classicman  Sunday Dec 2 04:06 PM

I am certainly not a radiologist, but it looks like the bottle is above all the other images in the x-ray.

That's just how X-rays work, they can't show depth position.
However, it is certainly possible that the bottle is on top of, or even underneath, the patient. We just cannot tell from an x-ray.

I also noticed the shapes Kumbulu points out, and while some (the soft blurry patches at the top right, eg) are probably just soft tissue, the hard straight-lined shapes intersecting and to the right of the bottle have me very puzzled. I don't take them as being suspicious, though - if you were faking this shot why would you throw in a bunch of extra junk?

And Cloud is very right - if this is real it is a horrible, terrible thing. Most of the time I keep myself desensitized to the horrors of the world. They are so many and so bad that they'd be quite overwhelming and drive me to despair. Humor is a defense. I just have to guard against apathy and cynicism, though.


xoxoxoBruce  Monday Dec 3 11:49 AM

I would think it would look more like this.



glatt  Monday Dec 3 11:57 AM

Artificial hip joint too.
