A scientific study carried out recently by doctors at the Institute of Advanced Bioscience has revealed a coin inside the ear of 5-year old participant Ben Giles, who was said to be delighted at the finding.
The study, which was conducted as a randomised controlled double-blind trial, has stunned the scientific community with its key finding that a small child had a coin in his ear when he didn’t think he had a coin in his ear.
“Coin!” giggled Mr Giles after the shiny brass piece of metal was plucked out of the side of his head. Professor Mandel, MA PhD, who was tasked with measuring the results of the trial, is said to have immediately recorded the event by making a small check on his clipboard next to a heading saying ‘Was there a coin in the boy’s ear?’.
At time of going to press, the Institute of Advanced Bioscience was said to be planning a follow-up experiment to measure the population density of doves hidden in top hats.
