"A British man (Sean Murphy) desperate to rid himself of a pesky wart used a rather unorthodox method to remove it -- a shotgun. The weapon blasted away the growth, along with most of his middle finger.
Murphy, who hails from Doncaster in northern England, had lost his job as a security guard shortly before the incident in March."

Every old woman worth her salt has a home remedy for getting rid of a wart, but I`ve never heard a know-it-all hag recommend a shotgun for removing a wart.
You must admit that blasting a wart with a shotgun is a foolproof method, as long as you don`t mind losing your finger along with the wart.
In England they have very strict gun laws, this bloke could have gone to prison for 15 years on an firearms offense. I guess the authorities figured this unemployed guy has suffered enough.
