Imagine if you will a man walking into a doctor’s office and saying, “Hey, doc. Why do I always get headaches?”
“I don’t know. Are you married?” the doctors asks.
“Then it must be that knife sticking out of your head.”
Okay, that’s not exactly what happened in a hospital somewhere in China recently, but it’s close. A Chinese man, Li Fu, went to a doctor about his frequent battles with migraine headaches, so the physician decided to take x-rays where he quickly discovered a possible source for the headaches, a four inch knife blade lodged in Li Fu’s brain.
It seems Fu was attacked and robbed by an assailant three years earlier. The robber took his wallet, but left the knife blade in the Li Fu’s head. The medical personnel who examined him immediately after the attack somehow overlooked the head wound and sent Fu on his way. In their defense, they were sick the day they covered the “knives in heads” section in medical school.
The knife blade has been removed and Li Fu is on the mend. The guy who attacked him must be freaking out, however. You gotta figure if you bury a knife four inches deep in somebody’s head, he’s going to die, or at the very least, slip into a knife-in-the-brain induced coma. You probably never thought it was possible that all he’d get out of the deal is some headaches.
One last note – My marriage does not give me headaches. It was just an easy joke. Please, don’t stab me in the head with a knife, honey!
