No, this is not an early Halloween trick. A Chinese man named Ho Lung said he was playing a silly game with his friend, which apparently went horribly wrong, and he somehow managed to get a knife stuck in his head. As you can tell by the photo, it almost looks fake; the guy does not seem to be in distress, and there is no visible blood or wound. The doctors in the emergency room did not take it seriously as they thought he was faking, but it took a three-hour procedure to safely remove the knife.

Lesson of the day: don't play silly games with knives.
