OUCH! A 70-year-old Canberra (Australia) man came to an extraordinarily painful fork in the road when he presented to Canberra Hospital‘s Emergency Department with a 10 centimeter (or almost 4 inch) fork lodged in his penis.
The steel cutlery item was inserted into his urethra for his sexual gratification, a write-up in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports said. It remains uncertain how the gentleman thought that could be achieved.
The fork was not visible from the outside but doctors were able to feel it.
“The motives for insertion of a variety of objects are difficult to comprehend”, the report, titled An Unusual Urethral Foreign Body, said.
Understatement of the year.
