once was a little girl called Margret who got a pencil stuck in her head.
is not a funny funny real news story, this is a funny peculiar news story.)
reports we saw on Ananova, quoting the BBC, don't say how this actually happened.
German girl was just 4 years of age. The year: 1952.
removed a large part of the pencil at the time, but decided it was too dangerous
to operate because the pencil was lodged too close to the brain.
left a 2.1cm portion of the pencil embedded in soft tissue behind her nose.
years she suffered nosebleeds and headaches until, now, 59 years of age, medical
advances meant they could take a calculated risk and remove it.
doing well and no longer has headaches and is getting her sense of smell back
