You know the saying - don't make silly faces because your face might just get stuck like that.
Well, the same goes for putting silly things up your nose.
Isaak Lasson found that out the hard way.
The six-year-old had been playing with LEGO toys since he was three which is around the time when his parents believe he stuck a lego piece up his nose where it remained stuck for three years.
The boy complained of horrible sinus problems, and the parents took him to a dizzying array of medical specialists before one doctor noticed something in his nose.
Here's what the boy told the doctor when the medical specialist asked if he ever put anything up his nose:
"I put some spaghetti up there, but that was a long time ago."
An appointment with a specialist led to a giant ball of fungus being removed with a lego piece in the middle - gross.
Here's what the father said:
"I felt so bad. He was sleeping with his mouth open, trying to breathe. I asked him, ‘Dude, how did that even get in there? We think he bent it in half — it's pretty flexible — and that it opened up once it got into his sinuses."
Even though the sinus problems really made the family worried, the father says they laugh about it all now.
Here's what he said:
"You ask yourself, ‘Am I a bad parent because I didn't catch it sooner?' But the doctors just kept prescribing antibiotics. We just didn't know. It's just one of those weird things," he said. "Isaak thinks it's pretty cool. He said, ‘I didn't even know … this is weird.'"
