Thread Name: Origins: Beans in my Ears (Len Chandler)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Beans in my Ears?
My neice managed to put a peanut waaaaay up her nose, necessitating a trip to hospital for removal.

And you know those cotton bud things - Q-Tips in the US? - well, a certain adult* of my acquaintance - despite advice from *close* family members and all exhortations on the packaging (DO NOT STICK THESE WAAAAY INSIDE YOUR EARS, YOU DOOFUS!!!)... managed TWICE to lose the tip of said item necessitating trips to medical practitioners..

So it does happen, and not just to kids.....

(OK... it was me....)
