I believe the expression is "think thrice".

It's sad, really. I was just looking for a way to tie Enya into all of this, and then I realized the whole thing was blown completely out of proportions.

I would ask for evidence but I googled it.

Although lurid anecdotes of attacks of humans abound (see Popular Culture section below), there is only one documented case of a candiru attack on a human.[8]A well-circulated myth is that the candiru is capable of swimming up the stream of urine in mid-air to a victim standing on shore or a boat. Nonetheless, there was a case in which the victim claimed that the fish jumped while he was urinating thigh deep.[9] They are also probably not attracted to pure urine.[4] It is believed that they are able to enter a human urethra only when it is expanded during urination.[9]

A traditional "cure" involves the use of two plants, the jagua or jenipapo plant (Genipa americana) and the Buitach apple which are inserted (or their extract in the case of tight spaces) into the affected area. It is thought that these two plants together will kill and then dislodge the fish.[10]


That comes from Wikipedia. Only one documentated case of it happening. From the looks of it, they are not attracted by urine and most often attack other fish
