Claim: Photograph shows a man who tried to scratch his nose with a power drill.
Examples: [Collected via e-mail, 2001]
This is not a picture of someone who "placed a power drill up his nose" to scratch and itch and "drilled off his nose," nor is any person named Henry Harleny "suing a famous drill company" because the tool he purchased lacked a label warning consumers "not to place the drill up their nose." The picture was taken from an episode of The Learning Channel's television program
