I hope this isn’t true. if it is, it’s yet another example of a story that can be told by starting with the words a Romanian man, and it also means that Viorel Firoiu, after eating cherries and becoming plugged up, decided to have a few drinks and thenplug himself up a bit more with a hammerhead he thought he could use to dislodge what was ailing him.
Not surprisingly, this technique failed. But not being one to give up, he decided that the best solution would be to cram another one up there to see if he could knock the first one loose. Yes, this too was a failure and he eventually had to go to hospital to have them professionally removed.
No word on whether or not he was listening to the I know an old lady who swallowed a fly song while all this was going on.
