Dude Blows Away His Finger With Shotgun To Get Rid Of Wart

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A British man who attempted to use a shotgun to blast off a wart wound up losing most of his finger and was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service.

Sean Murphy, 38, who was charged after the March incident with illegal possession of a firearm, was also given a suspended 16-week jail sentence and ordered to pay $160 in court costs after pleading guilty in Doncaster Magistrates` Court, The Star reported Friday."



I had a wart on my thumb once; it`s such an embarrassing affliction that I was ready to slice it off with a switch blade. But using a shotgun to get rid of a wart is a little bit extreme. I figure a missing digit will garner you a lot more unwanted attention than a wart.

To add insult to injury, not only did the bloody fool lose a finger but he was sentenced to 100 hours of community service. I hope he doesn`t have to begin his community service until his wound heals.

The Brit has a good outlook on his bloody experience, he said he doesn`t mind losing the finger as long as the wart doesn`t return.
