Recently we had a harrowing experience. Our son put thermocol balls in his nostrils. Even though we tried everything (even vacuum cleaner, though my son didn't allow hearing the sound ), one piece in each nostril went up higher and could not be removed. Finally we had to go to hospital where it was removed under anesthesia. When we countered him on why he did it, he told that Mr. Bean also put them in his nostrils. Though I couldn't recall in which episode he put it, my wife reminded me that he put popcorns in one of the episodes. I used to absolutely hate this guy earlier (simply because my son tries to imitate him and no sane parent would want that) but now the very mention of him makes me boil. I still don't understand, why even 2 yr olds, who don't watch much television, seem to adore him and watch his serials!
