Dr. Dong and The Case of The Urethral Jump Rope

An X-ray showed a rope with four knots stuck in the narrowest part of his urethra with 10 centimeters dangling out of the urethral opening.

A middle-aged man had a skipping rope successfully removed from his bladder and urethra after he had inserted it for sexual pleasure, a newspaper reported today.

A urologist surnamed Dong in Yichang City, Hubei Province, said the surgery was complicated because the green plastic skipping rope had knotted.

The skipping rope was 1.1-meters long and 4.4-millimeters thick.

    I'm really confused by "had knotted". Did this somehow happen after the insertion? That's some party trick...

    Related: the English-language sites I can find describing Han-dynasty jade burial armor (this one has a nice picture of Liu Sheng's set) don't seem to mention this, but it was relatively common for the suits also to come with a set of nine jade plugs in order to make sure that the body's 九竅 ("nine apertures") were securely sealed.
    One of the best things about passing this factoid along is watching people's faces as they silently count their apertures.

    "Yo, I must have, like, fell on this jump rope? And it like drove itself into my urethra?"

    I've read a fair number of doctor and EMT reports that said "the patient reported he slipped and fell on a bottle."

    A very conveniently placed bottle, of course.

    I hate it when that happens.
