Which one does not belong?

One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn't belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?

So here's a list of objects - guess which one does not belong and why:
1. Paper
2. Razorblades
3. Television antennae
4. Umbrella
5. Pencils
6. Doorhandle
7. Shards of glass
8. Paperclip
9. Wooden spoon
10. Tampon
11. Eggs
12. Coat hanger
13. Remote control
14. Mobile phone
15. Hairbrush

Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
Did you guess which thing just doesn't belong?
If you guessed this one is not like the others,
Then you're absolutely...right!

OK, I give up ... didn't get it right, and couldn't figure out why! Enlighten me please?

OK, I went with the tampon, as the only thing on the list you EXPECT to find in a certain body cavity (this being an ER blog and all...).

I couldn't figure it out! I thought the phone would be, er, rather more phallic in shape and a lot less dicey than, say, shards of glass?

Well, the phone is the only item that comes with a vibration mode...

Have you been to Pattaya, Tym?

obviously got it wrong as i thought that shards of glass didn't have a purpose as the others were useful in their own way.

The only thing I can think of, though I'm probably way off base here, is that the mobile phone is the only one which cannot be used (or which you have not yet seen used) as a home abortion kit...?

Hi everybody, thanks for being so sporting and playing along! You all get prizes for guessing!

The list is made up of objects that I have had to extract/attempt extraction from various body orifices.

Not the mouth.

I have rather been expecting to see a mobile phone at some point on a pelvic x-ray, since, as angry doc pointed out, it has this handy vibration mode. But I have been sorely (ahem) disappointed.

People are surprisingly protective over their mobile phones (rather more careful with them than their own bodies!).

By the way, anyone who guessed 'Coat hanger' or 'Television antennae' gets kudos too - these were removed from a Very Unexpected Male Orifice. Cross your legs, boys.

jadeite: Door handle was the most impressive one. It even had it's fixings and screws and everything.

I know it's been said already, but some things just cry out to be said

DOOR HANDLE?!?!?!?! wtf?!?!?!

Out of curiosity, was it a door knob, or a door handle?

wahj: It was a door handle, the kind which you have to press down to open the door. Yes. I too was very impressed by the tenecity of the patient in question.
