Hope you haven’t finished a large meal recently.

Crazy things happen in 2’s.

A day after we found out about that rugby player who discovered his opponents tooth embedded into his forehead, a much more stomach curdling story along similar lines has emerged.

Look away now if you fell squeamish at the mere thought of an infestation of fly larvae INSIDE YOUR HEAD! Oh wait, I just told you right there.

Eeeep!

Yes that’s right.

According to media reports:

A man in the United States who had recently been on a trip to the Central American nation of Belize discovered five active bot fly larvae living near the top of his skull, which were living in a 2mm to 3mm-wide pit under his skin.

“I’d put my hand back there and feel them moving. I thought it was blood coursing through my head”

“I could hear them. I actually thought I was going crazy.”

Aaron Dallas from Colorado was initially told that he was suffering from the shingles, but after a continuation of unusual feelings within his head, he went back for a further examination, and his doctor Kimball Spence made the spine shivering discovery.

“It was pretty obvious that something was going on”.

“There was an open pit. You could see a little activity, not necessarily the larvae, but a fluctuation of the fluid in the pit,” Dr Spence told media.

Yipes! watch a man have a South American bot fly removed from his back!

Just imagine having those living in your skull…

Shock & Horror: Beauty pageant winner stripped of title for “fake braids”

The Calgary Sun reports:

A newly crowned Bolivian beauty queen was stripped of her title after judges discovered she had worn fake braids during a pageant celebrating Aymara Indian fashions.

Mariela Mollinedo was chosen from 14 contestants Friday night for the title of Cholita Pacena 2007, an annual event that features the elaborate style favoured by La Paz’s Aymara women, known as “cholitas.”

But after the contest ended, judges discovered Mollinedo’s long black braids — an essential part of the cholita look — were extensions.

An absolutely disgraceful act on the behalf of Mariela, totally deserved to be stripped of her title. I mean, how dare she wear hair extensions?! A truly abhorrent act.

“Oh, by the way, I was being sarcastic”

Meanwhile, in the home of the modern day beauty pagent

It was announced that Miss New Jersey was allowed to keep her title, despite photos arising that show her acting “not in a ladylike manner.” Oh dear!

See photo’s here! (you’ve likely seen worse)

Sweetheart Amy Polumbo said that she wanted “to thank God for getting me through this.”

Sigh…Life’s tough being beautiful.

Penguins hitch rides north of the border.

How did the penguin cross the border? The question has vexed biologists ever since a Humboldt penguin, native to South America, was found off the coast of Alaska in 2002.

Now they have a likely answer: The flightless bird hitched a ride on a fishing boat.

“Penguins are kind of cute. People like them, and they’re pretty easy to pick up,” said Dee Boersma, a conservation biologist at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Boersma and graduate student Amy Van Buren looked at a series of possibilities for the out-of-place seabird and concluded the boat ride is the best explanation.

They speculate that other penguins spotted in North American waters, although very rare, may also have traveled by fishing boat.

A study on the Humboldt penguin’s trek is published this month in the Wilson Journal of Ornithology
