    True Story

    Back when I lived in Rapid City, SD; there was this homeless guy that went to Burger King alot. They would usually give him a free burger or something cause... Well... He was homeless. Anyway, this guy had this huge lump on his neck. One winter's day, he slipped on the ice in front of Burger King and they had to take him to the hospital. My grandmother was working as a nurse at the time and happened to be on duty that night. They were really concerned about this lump on his neck (the thing was huge, it was like a fat second chin). As it turned out, the lump was full of maggots.

    I'm eating popcorn, it reminded me of the story.

    my mom was a nurse long time ago...
    she was on duty one night when they brought in a homeless guy who had been kicked in the rear end... no biggie right? WRONG. he stored his money in a bottle that was kept... u guessed it.. up his rear.. so they spent a few hours removing glass from his "backside"

    Re: True Story

    How would you even come up with that idea? I mean, what chain of logic takes place before all the sudden; it becomes clear that that's the best place to store it?

    ...I bet he uses sprocs. :X

    So he got the maggot eggs in his throat from the burgerking? Hmm I always thought a pint of t-bird would kill anything living that it touched.

    It wasn't from inside his throat. It came from the outside while he was sleeping in an alley (they assumed through an open wound of some sort).

    You're justifying his logic?

    ...Is there something you're not telling us? The story was about you, wasn't it? Don't be shy, you're among friends.

    Correct. It is maggots that cause the mess, and eat away at you. And fantastic, i have a lump very close to my neck, thanks for making me paranoid now!

    I actually don't have a lump... but just think of what you've done to those who do... you sadistic young man you...

    I'm guessing the guy only had mean maggots, not the tooth fairyesque ones.
