Creative use of consumer oral hygiene products

Had a Chuck Palahniuk moment the other night. A young man came in with a chief complaint of 'bleeding from penis'. Penis appeared normal. Blood in urine. Exam otherwise unremarkable.

Me: Listen, I need to ask you something. It's kind of embarrassing, but I really need an honest answer.
He: Okay.
Me: I'm concerned about where this bleeding is coming from. Is there any chance you might have stuck something into your penis? A piece of metal, a straw, anything like that?
He: Oh, no.
Me: Okay.
He: Except...
Me: Mm-hm...
He: When my girlfriend was performing oral sex on me the other night, she put a Listerine Mint Strip on my dick.
Me: Okaaaay. Ah, is there any chance it could have gotten inside?
He: It might have.
Me: Do you think it did?
He: Maybe.
