Vicar has POTATO removed from BOTTOM!


Recommended Posts

A vicar in Yorkshire has had a potato removed from his bottom after claiming that he fell on it while hanging curtains naked.


Nurse Trudi Watson of Sheffield Northern General Hospital recalled how the unnamed clergyman in his 50s arrived at the A&E ward with the embarrassing problem.


She told local newspaper The Star: "He explained to me, quite sincerely, he had been hanging curtains naked in the kitchen when he fell backwards on to the kitchen table and on to a potato.


"It's not for me to question his story. He had to undergo surgery to have it removed."


Other foreign bodies removed at Sheffield A&E units reportedly include a can of deodorant, a carnation, a cucumber and a Russian doll.


Watson added: "My advice? Don't do it. It can be very dangerous and potentially life-threatening."


A spokeswoman for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said that although "unusual accidents" are often seen, staff are encouraged to deal with the matter in a "discreet, professional and kind way".

I first read this from the university computer lab, I kept cracking up and people were giving me odd looks, I think it's because the star trek photo is so perfect! Everytime I looked up I had to keep biting my lip!
