An 88-year-old Frenchman is recovering slowly but surely after having an 8-inch long, 2-inch wide World War 1 explosive removed from his rectum. The surgery was a success, but we'd like to point out that somehow this isn't even the craziest part of the story.

After the man turned up at Hospital Sainte Musse in Toulon, staff on hand had to take extra precaution. On the night of the patient's arrival, bomb disposal personnel were called in. A full evacuation of the emergency room area was also performed. The bomb squad then gave word that there was "little possibility" of the device actually exploding inside of the man.

A hospital spokesperson stated, "When in doubt, we took all precautions." Hey, better safe than sorry. With his explosive a**hole under control, doctors still had to perform surgery on the kinky man to remove the massive shell.

Good lord. That thing was inside of someone's anus. I don't use this word lightly, but I am flabbergasted. How is this man still alive? And at 88 years of age? Life is too fragile. Find a new kink. No need to get the bomb squad involved every time you want to get off.
