He was happy to discover that years of suffering because of a blocked passage was because of a toy dart.

Steve Easton was shocked to discover that, after 40 years of suffering from a blocked nose, the cause of his nasal issues was actually a piece of a toy dart launched in his nose from childhood.

Just a few weeks ago, the 51-year-old U.K. man sneezed out the tip of a toy dart. It was roughly the size of a penny, The Guardian reports. After suffering most of his life from blocked nasal passages and headaches, which he assumed was due to hay fever, he realized the real cause was a childhood toy.

“I started a sneezing fit and it came out of my left nostril,” Easton told The Guardian. “I thought, ‘What’s this? Where the hell has this come from?’ and pulled out this rubber sucker. I was completely blown away.”

      I had an uncle sneeze out a string bean through his nose at dinner once…he claimed it was painful. Still talked about 50 years later.

    I woulda thought he’d have someone look up his schnoz after all these years…like a ENT doc.

    Good thing he didn’t have something up his culo.

    Thankfully, he sneezed out … rather than farting out … a missing toy.

    actually a piece of a toy dart launched in his nose from childhood.

    I hope they meant lodged. “Launched” brings up a whole bunch of other questions.

    I am a republican for the moment: See what socialized medicine can’t do? Sorry, couldn’t resist but really, the guy has to be on top of some stupid list.
