Attention hemorrhoid sufferers. This is something that needs to be said.

Putting potatoes up your butt won’t cure hemorrhoids, doctors warn
NY Post
Potatoes only belong in one human hole.

Doctors are starting to get very concerned about people who subscribe to a dangerous home remedy touted on numerous websites, which involves inserting a potato into the rectum.

Credible medical professionals are emphasizing that this will not, in fact, help with hemorrhoids (also known as piles).

“There is no medical evidence that putting frozen potatoes inside the anus can help cure piles, so I would urge caution to anyone thinking of doing it,” Dr. Diana Gall tells Wales Online, noting that those suffering from the condition can attempt to treat it at home in a number of ways — but sticking frozen spuds up their butt is not one of them.

She doesn’t go into detail on the possible consequences of the at-home remedy, but one would think there are enough cautionary tales to discourage such efforts.

Anything goes as long as it gives me an excuse to insert it a tergo.

I hear cacti are extremely efficient…

That would take one's mind off the 'rhoid problem. :)
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.
