Gauged piercings have always weirded me out. I think it’s because they look so weird and saggy when you take out the plug. That, and the fact that they are generally a mistake that you can’t undo. One problem that I didn’t think people with gauged piercings would have to deal with, however, is getting a pet stuck in the hole. Apparently, that didn’t occur to Ashley Glawe either.
When she found herself stuck in the position of having her pet snake, Bart, lodged in her earlobe, it took emergency room doctors a load of Vaseline and a small knife cut to safely extricate the serpent from her head.
I’m sure there’s a lesson to be learned here, but I’m not sure that anyone who would get themselves into this position would ever learn it.
