Watch as a doctor grabs hold of a tapeworm with a pair of tweezers and starts pulling...and pulling...and pulling.


To be completely honest, I enjoy a satisfying pimple-popping or blackhead removal video from time to time. The tapeworm that doctors just pulled out of this man's nose in Australia, though, takes things to a whole new (and disgusting) level. Tapeworms are parasites that absorb nutrients through their host. The number-one way people become infested with tapeworms is by consuming raw beef, pork, or fish. Most often, they are found living in animal intestines, but to the astonishment of medical staff, this one took up residence in a man's nasal cavity.
