Dearest Body-Part-Ologists,


See my ear ?



LOL..it looks like a bunny wabbit !..it does doesn't it ?

Ears are my all time favourite organ for hearing things with !

But what would happen to my ear if I left it submerged in water indefinitely ?...or any part of my body for that matter ?

I need to know before I enter the "How Long can Ewe Keep Your Ear Submerged " competition that my local paper is running. The prize is an ear bud  ! (US Translation Service: "Ear Bud" = "Q tip"...sheesh !)...and i really really need an ear bud right now !

Anyway, I think I'll go feed my ear a carrot whilst your fleshy water orientated answers come !

Thank ewe so very much
