A man has reportedly been treated in hospital after medics found a shot glass stuck up his bottom.
Happily the patient – identified as Mr Liu – is expected to make a full recovery – though the circumstances as to how the drinking game accessory came to be lodged in his rectum are somewhat mysterious.
We were alerted to Mr Liu's case via a Chinese TV report posted on LiveLeak on 1 December.

Mr Liu said he was walking home through the city of Deyang when three men in a van pulled over and asked for directions, one late November evening.
He claimed he then lost consciousness and has no recollection of what happened next, a People's Daily report cited by WantChinaTimes claimed.

He says that when he came to, he was kneeling behind the van, with the three men standing next to the vehicle.
An understandably disconcerted Mr Liu rushed home and upon noticing blood in his underpants, hurried to hospital.
X-rays revealed the glass - measuring 5cm x 7cm lodged in his pelvis.
Police are investigating the incident.
