A Real-Life Homer Simpson Moment

Fri Aug 10, 2007 7:08 pm

I'm sure some on here know the Simpsons episode where Homer has a crayon removed from his brain and turns into a brainiac until he decides to return to his former life as a blissful boob.

Turns out that things like a crayon in a brain do actually happen: AFTER 55 YEARS OF PAIN:
German Woman Has Pencil Removed From Brain


Quote:
A pencil lodged in your brain has got to hurt. A German woman who fell on a pencil 55 years ago has just had most of it removed from her head in a complex operation. But the tip will remain in her brain for ever.

 Wow!
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Do you think she has a sharp personality or is she quite a blunt person? I wonder if the marks the pencil has left on her brain can ever be erased?
