Is It True That If You Put A Light Bulb In Your Mouth You Will Never Get It Out Without Breaking It?

so - is it true? Opinions differ (http://www.blurtit.com/q699712.html), but we've been fighting the urge to try since last night already :sad:.

We don't have those types of lightbulbs anymore. Just the squiggly ones ...

I've had to pull a few out of people's other end, but I've never been asked to see one for a bulb stuck in the mouth.

Why would you want to put a lightbulb in your gob?

A decent vindaloo, yes.

A matured limousin steak cooked rare, yes.

Any number of good vintages of claret, burgundy or regional wines, yes

A decent single malt, yes.

A lightbulb? :hmm:

this thread takes me back about 25 years. You know how you might show off your new toy/phone/radio/computer/sports equipment etc to visitors to your home well, my b.i.l. was a newly qualified obstetrician when we visited him and my sister in their new home. After a while the urge was too much for him and he left the room only to re-appear a few minutes later brandishing his recently purchased forceps, all in very shiney stainless steel. To the embarasment of my sister he went on to explain that he was looking forwards to using them for their intended purpose any time soon. It seems that during the previous night, when he had been on call at the local hospital, he was called upon to deliver a lightbulb from the back passage of a neighbour. The chap had already managed to break off the metal part with the thread and then had nothing to grip.

Made my eyes water.

I am reminded......

A man walks into a bar with a monkey on his shoulder. The bartender says "Hey you cant bring pets in here!" The man replies "don't worry, he's trained. He wont mess anything up." The bartender agrees to let the man and his monkey in. While the man sits down, the monkey hops on the bar and eats a cherry, then jumps on the pool table and swallows the cue ball whole. Furious, the bartender says "get your monkey out of here! I cant have him eating things like that."

A few days later, the man enters the bar again with the monkey on his shoulder. "Didn't I tell you to get that monkey out of here?" The bartender asks. "Its okay," the man says. He wont do it again. The monkey hops on the bar, grabs a peanut, shoves it up his ass, pulls it out, then eats it. "What the hell is he doing?" asks the bartender. "Measuring." the man replies. "You would measure too if you had to pass a cue ball."

When I worked at the local hospital, my friend who ran the photographic department showed me a photo of an x-ray of a chap's rear end containing a pint milk bottle.

It seemed it had been his sexual partner for some time, until it went in too far for him to grip http://images.ibsrv.net/ibsrv/res/src:www.pprune.org/get/images/smilies/eek.gif

This wasn't him Vulc was it?

Well, you just have to turn everything dirty... no surprise of course.
No, nothing like that - just a simple question: can one get the bulb out of one's mouth, or is it some trick with the jaw bone? Where's Mac-know-all-the-knife?
It's a joke about 3 professors trying it, and a nurse getting hiccups (of laughter), and then the surgeon who could not resist.
That's us, without being surgeons. :sad:

Why would you want to put a lightbulb in your gob?
because I'd (we'd) like to know if it gets stuck! :8

I used to know a drunk who would regularly eat light bulbs. He'd chew them up and swallow with no apparent effect, including the bayonet cap. He ate pint pots as well - even the heavy tankard type.
The guy was an idiot - twelve pints of cider a night. Gypsy in the flat roofing trade. I had to drop him one night when he took a swing at me.
Last I heard of him he'd fallen off some scaffolding into a tar boiler - went in head first. He was saved by his mate who jumped off the scaffold (breaking his own leg in the process) dragged him into a neighbours fish pond....
Lucky b'stard got away with just one small burn scar on his forehead - the rest of his skin recovered OK.

What do you expect from "vulgar" types? http://images.ibsrv.net/ibsrv/res/src:www.pprune.org/get/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Doctor, looking carefully, "This is very, very serious, but don't worry, there's light at the end of the tunnel."

I know, it's a ,modified Iceberg lettuce joke.

If you DO break it pulling it out - you can always EAT it, perfectly safely !

Thanks for those updates Slash & Milo.

Imagine in that first piccie from Milo if that thing had an accidental discharge - would it mean that the guy would go off half-cocked? Would certainly by one almighty balls-up.

On the other hand, if it was a woman it would be a complete dis-arsed-her.

Edited to add: Milo, I am impressed :rolleyes: that you found that site :eek: BTW - it refers to objects found in assholes. Do you think they are referring to the orifice or the person :D:D

Just tried it with my mini-maglite bulb. No problem.

What....in your mouth or in your bum Magnus? :confused:

1st Feb 2013, 13:17
Gob, Slash, just the gob. My bum's for egress, not ingress (or congress, for that matter).

1st Feb 2013, 13:32
Lit or unlit?

What about modern energy efficient bulbs, Fluorescent tubes, LEDs?

Although, technically (as my Dad's an Electrician), it should be "Lamp"

Why did the halogen light?
Because he saw the Edison Screw.

1st Feb 2013, 18:53
I have an active imagination - but for the life of
me I just can't picture Thomas Edison screwing!


1st Feb 2013, 22:16
Wrong, Slasher - he had six children!

Nah mate - I meant I can't mentally picture him having sex!

2nd Feb 2013, 06:06
Nah mate - I meant I can't mentally picture him having sex!...but you tried???:eek:

3rd Feb 2013, 17:21
Dear me, Slasher - I shall never order another Edison Screw bulb again without having a chuckle!
