Man Eats Glass Champagne Flutes and Household Lightbulbs

First there was the woman who eats couches, now there's Josh, a Wooster, Ohio man who is hooked on eating glass household products. His story aired last night on TLC's My Strange Addiction, and, like most, we watched with an odd hybrid of shock and sadness. In the four years since he's been doing this, Josh has consumed more than 250 lightbulbs and 100 Champagne flutes, explaining that "it was kind of scary at first." "It's not like I feel anything, it doesn't hurt when I eat glass or anything," he adds, later admitting to having cut his lips and the corners of his mouth a few times. He's also gotten glass shards stuck in his gums.
