Stuck Up! is a new book by two psychiatrists and an emergency physician examining 100 x-ray images of strange foreign objects that have, er, made their way into people's bodies, such as bronzed baby shoes, a knife, a Barbie doll, a cassette tape, an extension cord, and, yes, the iPod seen above right. It's nice (I guess) to see the same territory explored in book form. "I fell on it. I swear."
And for instant gratification, might I suggest Cynsa Bonorris's classic Rectal Foreign Bodies page on The WELL, delighting the curious since 1997!
