    If it was January that would suck. July wouldn't be too bad.

    Was it the month of August or September? I have heard of September getting in people's ears but never August..... :-)

    If it was February, it wouldn't be too bad, especially in a non-leap year.

    My friend's uncle's sister-in-law's dog's cousin's roommate's neighbor got hit in the ear by a week once, rumor has it they died.

    Re: matt holliday's bizarre injury

    While I never had a month fly in my ear I did have a moth fly in my ear earlier this summer. Maybe the most annoying thing I have ever had happen. After about an hour of trying to get it out I gave up and went to the doc. Every time it fluttered around it sounded like a jack hammer inside my head.

    Interesting. Besides the type-o (which is hilarious) that seems like a weird but devastating injury. At first you think "suck it up ***** face" but when you think about it I conclude that a moth in the ear would be awful.

    People ask me why I miss work so much and I always reply... "moths".

    Don't laugh, it's not funny.

    Over 10 billion dollars a year in productivity is lost to moths. They run rampant in our cities, block light from our light fixtures and until this issue is addressed... it's ear muffs for everyone.

    Re: matt holliday's bizarre injury

    I had a fly get stuck in my ear a couple of years ago. It was terrible. It took about 15 minutes to get it out. I can only imagine how bad having a moth in an ear would have been.
