There's already a bum joke thread running...

"But our staff deal with them in a discreet, professional and kind way."

Which is presumably why nurse Trudi Watson talked 'discreetly' to the Press.

This sort of thing is so common, every medical student can offer similar stories - often with much more eye-watering objects being used. The excuses offered are frequently more amusing than hanging curtains in the nude as well.

Like Clapton is God, I question why the nurse could be bothered to relate such a story.

I've heard of a chip on the shoulder, now we have a Maris up the Arris.

Perhaps I've led a sheltered life, but why would one strip off to hang curtains? (particularly when there is a Kung Fu spud behind you!)

My wife qualified as a radiographer long ago.
Her professional journal reported (complete with reproduced X-ray) a "foreign body in the rectum."
This was a 1 lb jamjar.
