The Left Reverend Doktor Baron Grim

For more on "the dreaded candiru" I highly recommend the Venture Brothers' episode "Are You There, God? It's Me Dean".



Self proclaimed arch-nemesis of Dr. Venture tries to use "The Dreaded CandirĂº" to dispatch our heroes and gives a wonderful expositional speech describing this creature "with a penchant for swimming up a man's urethra."


Most of the reports concerning the candirĂº are still anecdotal and dated. But no one is volunteering to test out their veracity.

Also, I believe the term 'candirĂº' is Portuguese and not Spanish. Carnero is the Spanish version.

I'll change that CZsmiley - ok

I always thought the word "spectacular" was a *good* word - until I read this Entry in PR. But reading "the pain is spectacular" it kind of fitssmiley - erm because I can't imagine a worse pain (and I've survived childbirth, I still would prefer that to one of these in the wrong place)smiley - yikes
