Well, she's got homer simpson beat...



BERLIN – A woman who had a pencil lodged in her head for 55 years after a childhood accident has finally had most of it removed, which should end her chronic headaches and nosebleeds, her doctor said today.

Margaret Wegner was 4 when she fell while carrying the eight-centimetre pencil, which went through her cheek and into her brain.

"It bored right through the skin and disappeared into my head," Wegner, now 59, told Germany's best-selling newspaper, Bild. "It hurt like crazy."

ha ha ha
really very quick and clever with the play on words...

she still has the tip stuck in her head though so perhaps she can still get her point across?

I still can't see how anyone wouldn't know if they had a pencil stuck in their head.
