Monument to be erected to an enema in southern Russia

MOSCOW, June 16 (RIA Novosti) - A statue is to be unveiled to an enema at a health center in the southern Russia's town of Zheleznovodsk, the center director said on Monday. The 1.5 meter-high bronze monument, weighing 350 kilograms (771.6 pounds), portrays "three angel-like children carrying above their heads a big
pear-like enema," Alexander Kharchenko said.

Yep, the kids names are Jabum, Kolum and Rektum.

"This will be the first monument to an enema in the world," he said, adding that the initiative to erect the monument was proposed by the center's administration, where hundreds of similar procedures are carried out every day.

"It is high time a monument to an enema was erected," he said.

The director added that most health centers around the Caucasus Mineral Waters, a renowned Russian spa resort, provide enemas as part of medical treatment for stomach problems.

In late January, an incident with an enema in another Russian military health center in Pyatigorsk, in the North Caucasus, attracted large-scale public attention.

Now this gets a little crazy, it sounds like an enema got high on crack and machine gunned a bus full of kindergarteners on their way to the zoo.

A nurse used a rectal bulb syringe to inject peroxide into the rectums of 80 patients, including Russian officers and their families, after mistaking the substance for water. The incident led to 17 of the patients being hospitalized. Hydrogen peroxide, which can be used to bleach hair, should not be ingested as it could damage the stomach and other organs.

But everyone of them loves being a blonde...
