Doctors in the Indian city of Mumbai have extracted a 12.5cm-long live worm from a patient's eye.

Now to get rid of the identical one that is loged in my brain after reading that . . .

Eye in Mumbai...
Looking at you
I can read your mind:

Eye bleach, please."

There is no way I'm clicking on that link.

What's the problem? I can't imagine it would eat much.

Brain worms ... yeah. I promise not to post any -- this time.

Hits your eye
In some place
Like Mumbai
That's ...

disgusting. ♪

Did it roll up into a little metal ball and snap shut?


Happy Belated Birthday, Meanie.

good one, betsy - thanks for the earworm...

- um, wait....

Happy BD Meanie!!!!

I studied these types of worms in parasitology in college. They are not natural to the body so they just wander around.

I took the course so I could see gross pictures of things like elephantiasis of the scrotum!

Another global worming problem.
