People never stop being stupid, and that means that there's no shortage of foreign bodies that somehow wind up inside humans. Don't believe me? Check out 15 of the craziest images below.
1. This one shows many needles snapped off into the neck of a person addicted to heroin.

3. This gives a whole new meaning to the term "butt plug." (I had to.)
4. Are you sure you got everything before you closed him up?
5. That's not where that goes!
6. Two friends were eating ice cream when one startled the other. She wound up swallowing the entire spoon!
7. This poor little girl thought these magnets were candy, and now they're everywhere.
8. People sure do like sticking stuff that doesn't belong there up their butts.

10. I'd say that's too close for comfort. Yikes.
11. This looks photoshopped but holy crap it still makes me shudder.
12. This historical medical image shows self-mutilation using graphophone needles.
