A cracked skull with brains and eyes crudely shaped like a snail (and moving like one).


Exactly what his name says, he's a broken skull with its brain and eyes coming out. Each eye has a different iris color. His general shape resembles that of a snail's, with the skull as a shell, the brain as the body and having the eyes on stalks. Movement is very slow and blood constantly oozes, leaving a blood trail wherever he goes. He got to the Hospital after he crashed into the reception desk. His appearance before the accident is never shown, but is presumed that he was faster before.

Oozing Skull loves moving fast, which caused him his injury. His file also notes that he neglects traffic safety. Now he is slow as a snail, but in his perception he sees himself moving faster than he actually is. If he enjoys his slow pace, one can just imagine the excitement he got when Fern ran holding him in her hands. This also made him unresponsive for a few moments. His file warns to not under any circumstance allow him any motorized locomotion, in order to avoid repeating incident 00/V/3948.

Later we find that Oozing Skull became Crooked Spine's business partner, now wearing a fedora. They also open up a shop in Spine's patient room.

As his spine partner is very opportunistic, they both wore a flesh coating as a disguise when Eyeslob stumbled in their shop. As the Slob was a product of the Parliament of the Old Flesh, the bone duo pretended to be from the same zone and offered to sell a new set of flesh related items.

First AppearanceEdit

In Awful Hospital as a patient. Fern used him to buy stuff from Crooked Spine. Leaving him there, the spine became his mentor and partner.


  • The shop sign that has a blood streak made by him actually reads: "Broken Bone Bros. Bargain Blast".
  • He is the author's favorite patient character.
  • He was originally a concept for a ghost of a speed-obsessed motorcyclist who wouldn't wear a helmet and became an ironically snail-like phantom head injury.
