A guy needs this like he needs a hole in the head

Squirming Fly Larvae Pulled From Man's Head
Doctors thought the strange, bleeding bumps on Aaron Dallas' head might be from gnat bites or shingles. Then the bumps started moving.

A doctor found five active bot fly larvae living beneath the skin atop Dallas' head.

Dallas said he likely received the larval infestation while on a trip to Belize this summer. Bot fly infections are not uncommon in parts of Central and South America.

Definitely one of those better him than me stories. Let's take a bet, how long before we all stop feeling our scalps for bumps.

Doesn't this deserve an "animal kingdom jihad" headline?
