Ug. Now there’s an image I don’t need.
Li Chang, a fishmonger in China, fell in a tank full of eels. The eels were a little freaked by the new person in their tank, and started slithering every which way. A few slipped up his trouser leg, and one of them slithered up his ass! Yes.
So embarrassed was he about this that he got out of the tank and tried to continue working despite the pain. But it became too much and he collapsed. When they took him to the hospital, it took a five-hour operation to remove the eel and repair the damage. They said if he had come any later, he would have died.
Now, the question is do I believe this story? Could an eel that was two fingers wide and as long as a man’s arm just slither up there? I’ve never been in a tank full of eels, so I don’t know. I thought this was a pile of hooey, but the story is everywhere. I guess it could still be hooey, see man playing with donkey and handcuffs.
