Scissors stuck in man's throat
Vladstock, Russia (DE) – A man was trying to remove his own tonsils when disaster struck. "I thought he had the hiccups, so I crept up behind him and scared him. I feel really bad," his wife told us. Unable to pay for the tonsil surgery, the family was also unable to pay for the scissor removal surgery. "The scissors are still stuck in his throat, we are hoping one day we get them out," said his wife. In an effort to earn the money, the family is traveling the Russian countryside as part of a sideshow act. "People pay many rubles to see a drunk man with scissors stuck in his throat," the wife said.
