Ouch: A fish found its way into a teenager's penis in India, eventually swimming up the boy's urethra into his bladder. The boy claims the fish, thought to be a small member of the Betta genus, "swam" into his penis while he was cleaning an aquarium in his home and, while holding the small fish in his hand, decided to go to the bathroom. Following the forced fish entry, the boy began developing pain, dribbling urine and acute urinary retention. The 2cm by 1.5cm fish was eventually removed by doctors using a rigid ureteroscope, a tool normally used for removing bladder stones. [The Sun]

My husband said this kid probably saw something on the learning channel about the penis fishes, and decided to see if it was really true.
