LEGO Found in Boy's Nose ... 3 Years Later

Six-year-old Isaak Lasson has been dealing with sinus problems for the past three years, and doctors finally figured out why: He's had a LEGO piece stuck up his nose all that time. "I felt so bad," dad Craig Lasson tells "He was sleeping with his mouth open, trying to breathe." But, on many occasions, doctors simply put Isaak on antibiotics; finally, last month, a doctor realized the child had a foreign object in his nose.

The doctor asked Isaak about it. His response: "I put some spaghetti up there, but that was a long time ago." You may want to skip reading this next part if you're eating: A specialist later pulled a ball of fungus out of Isaak's nose, and inside was a LEGO tire. "I asked him, 'Dude, how did that even get in there?'" his dad says. "We think he bent it in half—it's pretty flexible—and that it opened up once it got into his sinuses." Isaak has been feeling much better since the tire was removed. (More strange stuff stories.)
