You Won't Believe What Sparked This OR Fire
Woman who claims the gas she passed set her genitals on fire loses case against her surgeon.

A woman who claims that she set fire to her genitals when she broke wind during hemorrhoidectomy lost the malpractice lawsuit that she filed against her Boston-area surgeon.

The incident happened in June 2005. The woman said that she suffered burns to her anal, vaginal and perineal areas, resulting in an infection, according to court documents.

The case began routinely enough. Her skin was prepped for surgery with an alcohol-based antibacterial solution.

The surgeon inserted a saline-soaked surgical sponge into her anal canal, placed a stitch with a chromic suture that was packed in alcohol and then used an electrosurgery pen to start dissecting her hemorrhoids.

During the electrosurgery, the woman contends that she "passed flatus and a fire ignited near her perineum," according to court documents.

I'm sure that the medical review board will get to the bottom of this.

LOL!

This is true. As it is, she and her lawyer will be the butt of many jokes around the courthouse.

I know I'm British and therefore ignorant on such issues, but may I ask, which bit of the lady is the lady's "cookie"? :confused:

Her muffin.:o

And pray tell, which bit is the muffin?

If it is what I think you mean, I am very saddened to hear that the poor lady's "muffin" was inflamed thus.

Muffins should be warmed gently, ideally by hand, and not subject to direct flame.

It's funny how baked goods describe the intimate parts of a woman, muffin and cookie being the obvious examples. I suppose that with the right inflection, crumpet, sweet roll, cream bun or just about any other pastry could double for that particular entendre, including the word pastry.

I'm still laughing. I'm sure many people can get behind this lady.
I'm sure that they will get their asses all fired up about it.

Believe it or not, it CAN happen. If they are using pure oxygen, along with electrical equipment, even static electricity could ignite flatus..don't forget that part of it is akin to methane, which is flammable.

It can happen.

It can happen.

A good cigarette lighter can light "flatus", even through jeans.

Don't ask me how I know this. I just do. :D

Yes, but it is highly unusual. The attorney who took this case must be a real bottom feeder. :D

hospitals should be required to put up signs for visitors and patients...for their safety. And of course, hospitals should only employ non.....uh.......non................ anti fiber employees.:)

it could happen.
