This is coolbert:

It is with much trepidation and apprehensiveness that I make this blog entry.

Warning: if you are easily offended by material of an adult and frank nature that might be distressful please hit escape now,

"Man With WWI Explosive Lodged In His Rectum Sparks Bomb Scare, Hospital Evacuation"

“'An apple, a mango or even a can of shaving foam, we are used to finding unusual objects inserted where they shouldn’t be,' one doctor declared. 'But a shell? Never!'”

"The case left doctors shell shocked."

"A French hospital was partially evacuated Saturday after a senior citizen arrived with a World War I artillery shell lodged in his rectum."

My guess would be that this artillery round was still alive and active and could spontaneously detonate given the right circumstances with disastrous consequences for all.

"The 88-year-old patient visited Hospital Sainte Musse in Toulon to have the antique explosive removed — but instead sparked a 'bomb scare,' French publication Var-Matin reported."

Each year in France at least a dozen or more French farmers are killed when plowing their fields detonating unexploded artillery rounds that have lay dormant and under the soil for a period of over 100 years now.

But this particular 88 year old man for shame now - for great shame!!
