Icky Pics!

I saw a couple of icky news pics and couldn't resist posting them!

The first comes from al-Reuters, so take it with a grain of salt... ;)

A python sits on a road after swallowing a pregnant ewe in the village of Kampung Jabor, about 200 km (124 miles) east of Kuala Lumpur, on September 5, 2006. The six-metre reptile weighing 90 kg (198.5 lbs) was too laden to move, making it easy for firemen to capture it, said a local daily newspaper. Picture taken September 5, 2006.

Our next pic, which is truly disturbing, comes courtesy of the AP:

This image provided by the Direction of Penal Centers of El Salvador shows an x-ray taken of one of four prisoners at a maximum security Salvadoran prison in Zacatecoluca, 35 miles southeast of the capital of El Salvador. Four cellular telephones were found in the intestines of as many prisoners in El Salvador's maximum-security prison, authorities said Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2006. The discovery happened Tuesday at the prison in Zacatecoluca after suspicious prison officials took x-rays of each of the prisoners, prison spokesman Jaime Villanova said. (AP Photo/Centros Penales)

I want to figure that there are two possible routes the phone could've traveled to get in, and only one to get out. Smuggling one of those bad boys in has to be worth some serious prison favors, despite the smell that must permeate the thing!

As long as it's high-tech polyphonic "Hit Me Baby, One More Time" ring doesn't give you away...
