AdolfOliverPanties: It took a team of 50 doctors to remove a pencil jammed into the brain of a 19-month old girl.Must have been one fark of a big operating theater.
sno man: Hold my pencil tiny doctor.
Mugato: I was going to be snarky and ask what color the pencil was but it was orange.

FloydA: If only the kid had been carrying a concealed colored pencil of her own, she would have been able to defend herself.
Boonaroo: FTFA . . . . She is expected to make a full recovery.Minus an eye.
Philbb: Beerguy: MmmmBacon: Ban colored pencils!That doesn't go far enough, ban toddlers!Your position goes to far, we should just ban toddlers!

AppleOptionEsc: beautifulbob: And nothing of value was lost. Even though it ran through both hemispheres doctors say nothing vital was damaged. Future air head for sure.I ain't no medical doctor (and I'm sure I'm missing the joke), but (from my limited understanding)the reason a bullet does such horrendous damage to the brain is because the shock-wave is about the size of a fist.
