Doctors in Australia became alarmed when an alcohol-related gastritis patient became drowsy for no apparent reason. Then his nurses noticed the hand-sanitizer bottles in his room were empty. The patient admitted drinking six 12.7 ounce bottles of alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Doctors were stunned: They say the gel is 66 percent ethenol and tastes “horrendous”.
- Not as horrendous as the hospital food, but it’s still pretty nasty.
- Pretty soon they’ll be pulling people over for driving with open bottles of “Purell” in their cars.
- The patient said he was trying to drink away the memory of a story he’d just read about a guy having sex with three dogs and “possibly a horse”.
