DIY in the hell would anyone do this?Okay... I'm just going to warn you ahead of time: Today's post is about a news story that could be considered a little... extreme.
If you're squeamish, it might be a good idea not to read it.
Seriously, just pretend I made some funny comments about Mario Kart and come back in a couple days.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
I understand we are in the middle of an economic crisis. The entire world is suffering from this problem.
In order to survive, people have to make sacrifices, they have to do without certain luxuries.
Maybe you don't go out to eat as much.
Maybe you don't buy that new game that just came out.
One area where you probably shouldn't try and save money is when is comes to getting medical help.
Oh, yeah. That's where we're going.
Apparently, in what can only be considered overzealous thriftiness, a man in the United Kingdom decided to save money by performing his own surgery.
Correction... His own circumcision surgery.
In case you're not familiar, that's the one where they remove the skin from around the tip of a man's junk.
He performed that procedure on himself.
Wow. Just... Just wow.
Oh, you haven't even heard the best part yet.
Because there are quite literally no limits to human stupidity, this Darwin award winner decided that the best tool for this job was a pair of nail clippers.
No, you didn't read that wrong.
What in the hell was this man thinking?
Was there some part of this guy's brain that thought this shit was going to turn out well?
Hell, maybe he just thought he needed a trim.
I realize that our current global economic turmoil is a very complex, hard to understand situation with thousands of mitigating factors and related indicators. As complex as it is, however, I think I've devised a fairly accurate means of determing the effect it has on your own life.
If, at any time, you think the best way to save money is by performing surgery on your own penis, YOU NEED TO RETHINK YOUR MOTHERF&%@ING INVESTMENTS.
Get another job.
Get two jobs.
Get EIGHT jobs.
You don't screw around with that shit.
Performing your own kidney transplant surgery? Go right the hell ahead.
That shit is easy.
But taking a set of nail clippers to the ol' polearm?
I don't think so.
The worst part is that the guy went through all that trouble, performing major surgery and he doesn't even get paid for it.
Well... I did hear that he gave himself a tip.
Bah dump psshhh.
