Sarah Palin was rushed to hospital this morning after poking her left eye with a bendy straw.
|Sarah Palin on the way to receive medical attention for bendy straw in the eye injury, earlier today:
An expert in drinking straws tells theVoiceofReason.com that it was virtually unheard of for a grown-up to poke themselves in the eye with a bendy straw:
"That's the whole point of the bendyness. A straight straw? Hundreds of pokey eye injuries every year, but a bendy straw? Unheard of. How easy is it to bend a bendy straw away from your eyes and to your mouth? Very easy. She must have been in a real hurry for a suck of water."
This news comes a day after a contract with Palin was found in a bin in which, amongst other demands, she asked for a bendable straw as a condition of speaking at California State University in June.
