MULTAN, Pakistan (Reuters) – Fateh Mohammad, a prison inmate in Pakistan, says he woke up last weekend with a glass lightbulb in his anus.

Wednesday night, doctors brought Mohammad’s misery to an end after a one-and-a-half hour operation to remove the object.


“Thanks Allah, now I feel comfort.

“We had to take it out intact,” said Dr. Farrukh Aftab at Nishtar Hospital. “Had it been broken inside, it would be a very very complicated situation.”

He swears he didn’t know the bulb was there. “I don’t know who did this to me. Police or other prisoners.”

The doctor treating Mohammad said he’d never encountered anything like it before.

If you have read this far… you can probably think of something funny to add to this ridiculous story. My thoughts are if poor Mohammed had a way he could have turned on the light bulb, the surgeon would have had an easier job seeing what he was doing.
