  3. LOL! I remember the last time we had liver for dinner when I was a kid. Dad hated it, so when Mom served it we all got a lecture on the function of the liver (and its assorted parasites and afflictions). The dogs ate well that night.

    HOWEVER, the door swung both ways. We also got treated to tetanus shots on a regular basis, since Dad had the pleasure of tending to a patient with tetanus. I think he was a little over-diligent about it. Got our asses whupped if we ran around without shoes on, too.

  4. 85,

    How could you?! You're inciting murder against bug kittens(formerly botfly larvae)! Murderer! Murderer!

    I'm still waiting for an apology and a formal denunciation of the way this human being was treated from FETH, Flies for the Ethical Treatment of Humans.

  6. [shudder]Brings back memories of when I was in the Peruvian Amazon with a medical team - doing research for a book. These little bastards are incredibly gross. We had one guy whose botfly was burrowing down toward his chest bone, and the doc had to go in after it and dig it out. All we had was some lidocaine. It turned out to be a bloody mess, and I had nightmares for a long time after that.

  9. Doctors must practice how not to say 'eewww
    nasty!' before a procedure like this.

    I'm a dr mom so of course I could carefully pull one of those critters out if I had to, but yuck.

    And one last comment, is there nothing that duct tape can't fix?

  11. I'm never going outside again. YUCK!! That's just nasty. I did like the creative use of duct tape, though.

  12. Duct tape, aspirin, super glue, and baling wire ... most useful substances on earth. Oh, and WD40. My husband is always spraying that on things.

  13. Those kids had to have been really, really stoned to have had that detatched, science-experiment like reaction. Were they using a roach clip to pull that thing out? Not.Normal.

  14. I have killed so many mosquitoes tonight! I have three very itchy bites on my feet. And I just watched a thing on bot flies on television last night. My skin is never going to stop crawling!
