(Newser) – A Chinese chef with possibly the worst friends in the world died after a live eel shoved up his rectum as a prank when he was passed out drunk gnawed through his guts. Doctors mystified by the man's abdominal pain and anal bleeding cut him open and were astonished to find the 20-inch eel, which had died but not before doing considerable damages to his insides, Shanghaiist reports. The patient died after 10 days in intensive care. Police are investigating, and the "friends" are likely to face charges.

Man, how drunk do you gotta be to get a Eel shoved up your ass and not know? And, how much skill does it take to shove an Eel up someones ass? This whole thing seems impossible. But the facts don't lie i guess.
