Room With A View

You know what I hate? When a friggin worm starts living behind your eye for 9 months. I really friggin hate that. An Iowa man was a tad concerned when he  noticed two spots on his left eye were beginning to  obscure his vision. He toddled off to the hospital to be told it was some  friggin worm using his eye as a bachelor pad.  No worries, the doctors got out their weapon of choice and zapped it with a laser. OK, the worm wasn’t giving up without a fight, requiring another round of laser  zapping before it would die. John Matthews isn’t sure if it was a worm he picked up holidaying in Mexico or a raccoon roundworm he caught while turkey hunting. Ewh.

Forget Swine Flu Try Raccoon Roundworms

Raccoon Roundworms

Gotta wash them hands!

Warning to all parents, do not let your children touch or eat raccoon feces under any circumstances. Two cases of Raccoon Roundworm have been reported in New York City leaving one teenager blind in one eye and an infant brain damaged. Ewh, evidently the worms lay eggs in the feces and once those little suckers hatch they can travel throughout the body. I haven’t a clue what raccoon droppings looks like so I suggest you just don’t touch or eat any poop, just to be on the safe side.
