New Orleans Saints fan swallows logo earring

Fri, Feb 5

Remember that nursery rhyme about the old lady who swallowed a fly?

Well meet the young lady who swallowed a Saints logo earring.

That's an X-ray of Florellen Rickard, a New Orleans resident who decided to prove her Saints mania by ingesting the team's logo. OK, OK, so it was actually an accident, but still, that's a pretty impressive show of devotion. After all, lots of NFL teams have round or oval logo earrings -- no problem swallowing those. But the Saints' fleur de lis has all kind of points and sharp edges -- ouch!

For all you Broncos fans thinking about proving your allegiance to your team, just remember what happened to the old lady who swallowed a horse.
