Here's a really disgusting series of articles about a man who repeatedly threw up snakes! (I found this while looking for my Longwell family in Pennsylvania, though I don't see a connection for this man to my tree.)

Isn't this a crazy story? I'm wondering if he really had some kind of parasite like a tape worm? Strange!!!
