A very funny collection of 100 X-ray images showing foreign objects ingested or inserted into human bodies, accidentally or on purpose.The human imagination truly knows no limits. Without it, there would be no great art, no advances in science and technology, and no extreme sports. Without it, we’d also be deprived of the many insights into human nature that we get out of witnessing other people do shockingly imprudent things and then try to rationalize them. Stuck Up! capitalizes on this human capability of coming up with creative applications for everyday (and not-so everyday) items way beyond their designated uses, and features 100 X-ray images of foreign objects inserted into human bodies, accidentally or on purpose.

“It was a million-to-one shot, Doc.”

“My hands were full.”

“I fell.”

These and many other ludicrous excuses are what emergency room doctors hear every day from patients who check in with various items inserted where the sun don’t shine, stuck in various orifices, or ingested in other ways.

How exactly did that cell phone end up there? Was it on vibrate? And is the rectum truly the best place to store your bronzed baby shoes? It is at least somewhat understandable to find a rectal thermometer in its intended place, but how about your six-year-old daughter’s Barbie doll?

Start browsing this hilarious collection of images – you’ll be surprised at the patients’ creativity and the medical information provided. And: Don’t try this at home.…

User Review  - Brenda Wharton - Goodreads

The X-rays are good for some laughs... But the short paragraphs don't really explain the story or how they resolved the problem of various items stuck in their rear ends Read full review
