Your search for the perfect holiday gift is over. A new book, ‘Stuck Up!: 100 Objects Inserted and Ingested in Places They Shouldn’t Be,’ [Amazon: $12.99] contains photos of over 100 x-rays of the very strange things people have put inside themselves.

The book, by doctors Marty A. Sindhian, Murdoc Knight and Rich E. Dreben, is meant to encourage people to get over the embarrassment and seek treatment when they “accidentally” end up with something, like a cassette tape or a Buzz Lightyear doll or an iPod, lodged inside of them. The items displayed in the book were mostly inserted through the rectum or by mouth, but some are found in the nose and even the urethra, if you can imagine that without doubling over in sympathy pain.

It’s also an interesting look at the many excuses people will come up with to explain how these things ended up stored where no man-made objects should ever go. People swallow wedding rings to hide them from potential partners. People claim they tripped and fell on the objects and they somehow ended up lodged in their you-know-where. And those who aren’t creative enough to come up with a good story just admit it was for sexual pleasure.

The book is a hilarious visual journey into the insides of adults (and children) who insert and swallow random objects for fun, to see what will happen or because they were drunk and it seemed like a good idea at the time. But doesn’t everything?
