Don't count the Chinese out though. Below is the x-ray of Huang Chen's (19) lower torso, still with the remote intact. Read the details.
A Chinese student appears to have been the butt of a somewhat strange prank following a nasty incident with a remote control.
Nineteen-year-old Huang Chen mystified medics when he turned up drunk at Hunan Hangtian Hospital in Changsha, complaining of unexplained pain from his rear end.
While being examined, the tipsy student turned over in bed, and inadvertently changed channel on the ward's telly.
Astonishing X-rays later revealed that the teenager had a TV remote control lodged up his backside.
Police say it was a part of a prank played by flatmates on Chen when he collapsed after a boozy night out.
"We didn't know what it was to start with. There was a little bit of blood but he didn't say anything about a remote control. We couldn't quite believe it when we saw the X-ray," said medic Dr Wei Lung Zhi.
"He will be fine in time but the remote was a write off," he added.
