Continuing the "alcohol and rectal foreign bodies" theme, I will add this little story. Early one morning a few years ago, a skinny gentleman came to the ED complaining that he had something stuck in his ass. He was intoxicated, and did not seem that uncomfortable, either with the anal foreign body, or the situation. After reviewing the xrays and talking to the gentleman, it turns out he had the entire attachment to a vacuum cleaner stuck up there. You know, the one that gets into those hard to reach areas in your furniture. His drunk buddies had bet him $40 that he couldn't fit it in. Even on the way to the OR, all he could say is "I won the bet!". Yes, you did.
