article imageOp-Ed: Man dies after friends insert eel into his rectum

By Kim I. Hartman     May 6, 2010 in Entertainment
The China Sun is reporting the death of a Sichuan chef after his friends apparently slipped a large eel into his rectum, killing him in a prank gone horribly wrong. He died from massive internal bleeding and a police investigation is underway.
What happened to the good old days when the worst things that could happen to a passed out man or fraternity brother would be having your pals pranking you with the chocolate syrup squirted in the back of your shorts? Humiliating but survivable.
According the Shanghaiist , a man has died after an eel inserted into his rectum gnawed away at his bowels, causing agonising injuries which were eventually fatal.
The 59-year-old man, a chef, was reportedly taken to a Sichuan hospital complaining of abdominal pain, dehydration and a great deal of anal bleeding. He was soon diagnosed as being in a severe state of shock.
Doctors obtained permission from his family to undertake an exploratory laparotomy. Cutting open his innards, they discovered a 50cm long Asian swamp eel lodged in his rectum.
Though dead, the eel had apparently already wrought havoc on his innards, biting its way through his intestines prior to dying. Internal bleeding and infection rapidly set in.
He was reported to have eaten a lot of eel the previous day, but otherwise doctors had no idea how the creature had got there. His condition quickly worsened.
He lingered for 10 days in intensive care but eventually succumbed to the injuries and sepsis.
The likely cause was eventually established - he had apparently been drinking with friends, and had passed out. His friends had decided it would be amusing to insert a live eel into his anus whilst he was comatose.
Police have reportedly begun an investigation.
No motive has been established at this time. The question everyone wants to know is "how" did they get the eel up his butt? Were there gerbils involved?
Who volunteered to create a gaping hole large enough to insert an eel? Is this a practical joke gone awry or murder? How drunk do you have to be to not wake up when a 50 centimeter long eel is inserted in your body? Was this a stupid foolish prank or some suppressed homo-erotic tendencies being displayed? Bestiality fetish fan or not "That's a lot of eel for a little China man or a grown up gay man or any man for that matter except maybe a cowboy from Brokeback Mountain.
An internet search of news reports and blogs on the death of the Chinese man who's friends took the art of pranking to a new and bizarre level brought up a few interesting, funny or just plain weird stories on drunken partiers and their drunken friends.
One man named Orca Bay told readers of
Some of my college wrestling teammates went on a sports exchange tour of Japan and the guys didn't exactly behave well.
During one night of particularly hard partying, the heavyweight wrestler from a rival college passed out first. The other guys dropped his trousers, slumped him over a sofa so his bare butt was sticking up, and stuck American and Japanese flags in his (bleep). They then took pictures. They called them the "Mount Suribachi pictures."
He reportedly woke up hours later on the floor with the flags still in his rectum. He was pretty dour and mean for the remainder of the tour.
The electricmuskrat said this one tops the old peeing in people’s mouths while they are sleeping college fraternity prank which definitely put the ust into disgusting.
Dave Chappelle even got into the discussion when he commented saying "you cannot pass out around white people, because they always do some borderline gay shit when the guy is asleep, like stick carrots up each others butts."

The folks at said "If you're hanging out with people who have a penchant for stuffing things up your :bleep: bum when you pass out drunk you need to run DO NOT WALK to a new group of friends" and I tend to agree with them on this display of pure idiocy.
You can't blame good booze for bizarre behaviour, there must be more behind this news report. Will keep you posted as the investigation continues.
