Not a very bright idea.

To the list of places I'd rather not fall asleep in, add Pakistani prisons.

MULTAN, Pakistan (Reuters) - Fateh Mohammad, a prison inmate in Pakistan, says he woke up last weekend with a glass lightbulb in his anus.

Mohammad, who is serving a four-year sentence for making liquor, prohibited for Muslims, said he was shocked when he was first told the cause of his discomfort. He swears he didn't know the bulb was there.

As a sidenote, I really like the fact that Yahoo News has a photo slideshow devoted to this story. 'Cause, you know, some readers might not know what a light bulb looks like.

It looks as though he has a wristwatch on his femur, too. :)

It does look like a wristwatch on his femur!

Maybe it's a clue . . .
