According to Metro, a vicar claims a potato got stuck up his ass after he fell on to the vegetable while hanging curtains in the nude.
The clergyman, in his 50s, told medical staff at Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital that the accident was definitely not due to a sex game.
He had to undergo surgery to extract the spud from his backside, nurse Trudi Watson said: ‘He explained to me, quite sincerely, he had been hanging curtains naked in he kitchen when he fell backwards on to the kitchen table and on to a potato.’ But it’s not for me to question his story.’
She went on to reveal other objects removed from people’s derriére, including a cucumber, a Russian doll and a carnation.
This story was originally posted in 2008 but, for reasons we’re not entirely sure of, has enjoyed something of a resurgence, and become a social media sensation.
