bottle-blonde backsides

memo to all nursing staff: from now on, hydrogen peroxide may be used as hair bleach, mold remover or as a disinfectant. It may not, however, be used for an enema.

This mistake was not made once -- but seventeen times, according to Itar-Tass news agency.

It seems that seventeen tourists visiting a health resort in Yessentuki, Russia were the unfortunate recipients of hydrogen peroxide enemas administered by a nurse. All had to be treated at a local hospital.

In trying to explain how such a mix-up could be made, representatives of the health spa noted that water and hydrogen peroxide look alike.

seventeen of them???? you'd think that the foaming backsides and pain of the first sixteen mighta given them a clue.
