Oh, god, this is so gross.

A guy in Australia went to the ER because he was having severe ear pain. He knew something was stuck in there... he even tried to get it out with a vaccuum cleaner. When he got to the hospital, the doctor was like "Oh, it's just a little cockroach."

They tried to coax it out by pouring oil into the ear, but the roach just burrowed further down the canal until it died. Then the doctor pulled it out and said, "You know how I said a little cockroach? That may have been an underestimate." Apparently it was the largest cockroach the doctor had ever removed from someone's ear.

2) HOW OFTEN DO PEOPLE IN AUSTRALIA GET COCKROACHES STUCK IN THEIR EARS? OMG, no. Ew.
