Insanity: Dude Tried To Remove Hernia From His Stomach With Butter Knife

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in California said a 63-year-old man is recovering after he apparently tried to use a butter knife to remove a hernia from his own stomach.

Glendale police said they responded to a call from the man`s wife and arrived at his home Monday to find him naked on an outside lounge chair with the handle of a 6-inch butter knife protruding from his stomach, the Glendale News Press reported Tuesday."



It must take a lot of determination (not to mention a loose screw) to puncture yourself in the stomach with a dull butter knife.

The unnamed man was trying to remove a hernia from his own stomach -- he should have attempted a lobotomy instead. Thank goodness he wasn`t suffering from a headache.

The dude pulled the knife out while waiting for the paramedics and he shoved a lit cigarette into the wound. Talk about adding insult to injury.

The man was checked into a hospital, when he is released from the hospital he should be transferred to a psychiatric facility.
