    Get your butt, and your eye, to a doctor or hospital. Some stuff can be messed with, but not your eyes.

    Once the thing has been removed by a professional, take your butt (and eye) to the hardware stoer and get you some safety glasses AND goggles.

    :shame:

    Oh, and as for your avatar, "EEEK." :haha:

    ER, pronto. Even if you were to somehow get it out yourself (or with Claire's help), you run a big risk of infection.
