Stuck Up!: 100 Objects Inserted & Ingested in Places They Shouldn’t Be is a book that takes a look at 100 real objects that somehow ended up in the human body, with the humorous anecdotes behind them. Psychiatrist Rich E. Dreben, M.D., emergency room physician Murdoc Knight, M.D., and forensic psychiatrist Marty A. Sindhian, M.D. authored Stuck Up! and used actual medical X-rays and stories, though they brought on graphic artist and photographer Jennifer Hale to slightly tweak the images to make the foreign objects more recognizable to readers. Huffington Post has posted an online gallery of some of the X-ray images.
A very funny collection of 100 X-ray images showing foreign objects ingested or inserted into human bodies, accidentally or on purpose.
The human imagination truly knows no limits. Without it, there would be no great art, no advances in science and technology, and no extreme sports. Without it, we’d also be deprived of the many insights into human nature that we get out of witnessing other people do shockingly imprudent things and then try to rationalize them. Stuck Up! capitalizes on this human capability of coming up with creative applications for everyday (and not-so everyday) items way beyond their designated uses, and features 100 X-ray images of foreign objects inserted into human bodies, accidentally or on purpose.
