A doctor recorded this video of possibly the grossest, largest, most painful looking splinter I've ever seen in my life.

The foot's owner, who is unnamed, said "I had a splinter in my foot for 3 weeks. No one could find it and no one believed me, until now."

I can only imagine the reason it was recorded was to prove to his friends that he did, in fact, have a giant splinter in his foot.

WARNING: ABSOLUTELY NASTY VIDEO. YOU WILL WANT TO VOMIT.

It's gotta be a few inches long, and how the thing hid in his foot for that long is beyond me.

I just wish there was more of a story to go along with the video because it really just brings up more questions than answers.

How did it get there? How did nobody else see a 3" long splinter in the poor guy's foot? How much force did it take to shove that thing into his foot?
