    But she was joking about the circumstances Friday, a day after doctors successfully removed the 3 ╝-inch nail from Dante Autullo's brain.

    "Dante says, 'I want it to make a necklace out of it,'" Glaenzer said....

    Another one?! What's up with that? This is the story from 2005 about a guy who thought he had a toothache.

    Bessie's article says the 2005 incident was the second time it happened in the same Denver hospital.

    I'm glad I don't own a nail gun. I need a nail in my brain like I need another hole in the head. <---- Me trying to dislodge the nail if it ever happens to me.

    I really don't get how that happens. Can't they feel it going in?

    My first glance at the X-ray pic and I swear my brain thought "Homer Simpson" and "DOH!"
