77-year-old grandmother and infamous Bosnian eyeball licker Hava Cebic claims she can cure people’s eye problems by the soft caress of her tongue on their eyeballs. Apparently she can cure anything from eye splinters, ocular hypertension to conjunctivitis crusts (ew).
Cebic resides in the small village of Crnjevo in northern Bosnia and has been licking eyeballs since she was child.
How does someone get into the business of licking eyeballs, you ask? Well, what started out as joke as a child when she licked her brother’s eyeball and then OMG he could see better after that… a “Golden Tongue” was born and a boomin’ eyeball licking business was created.
“At first my husband was very confused and didn’t want me to do it,” she says. “But one day he got a piece of wood in his eye and after I licked it out he agreed that I had a gift, and I should help others. Now, whenever anyone has something stuck in their eye or whatever, they come to me.”
According to reports online, “villagers from nearby towns and villages flock to have their eyeballs licked.”
As a very important sidenote, Cebic calms the nerves of the squeamish by stating, “I always make sure I wash my tongue in alcohol before and after an eye licking.”
Well thank god for that!
