What The F*ck? 

Nobody could possibly be this stupid... could they?

A rugby fan who cut out his testicles with wire cutters to mark a Wales victory is at a loss to explain why he did it.

Geoffrey Huish, 31, performed the impromptu self-surgery in February when his beloved Wales beat world champions England.

After performing the deed, Mr Huish put his severed anatomy in a bag and took them to his local social club to show fellow fans.
...
"I'd told my pal Gethin Probert before the game that Wales didn't stand a chance," Mr Huish told The Sun.

"It wasn't a bet but I said I'd cut my b*lls off if we won.
...
"I thought 'Oh no, I haven't got to do anything like that have I' and then I thought 'You can do it'.

"So I started hacking away at my tackle.

"It took about 10 minutes and there was quite a bit of pain but I just kept going.

"The cutters were blunt so I had to keep snipping."

After picking his testicles from the toilet bowl, he went to the social club.

For all those who still believe in Intelligent Design... we now have a strong proof of Darwinism. H/T to Darlene. Now if you'll excuse me... I need to go coax mine down... because they crawled up inside after reading that story. OUCH!

Comments:

Isn't that a sign of reverse Darwinism ;)

"A rugby fan" was all I needed to read to know his reasoning (i.e., there was none).

Perhaps this is an example of "unnatural selection?"

Ok... here is my reasoning for saying it is "natural selection". This moron cut his own balls off... and therefore will be unable to procreate... thus his genes will no longer taint the pool for generations to come.

I know... you guys are being coy and stuff... but I'm just feeling very blunt today.

Wasn't being coy (or koi for that matter) - was referring to a term I once saw in Guns, Germs and Steel. Diamond used it to describe the non-random manipulation of different genetic strains of plants and animals by humans to produce more desireable/useful to human offspring.

This guy did manipulate himself to help improve the human gene pool by doing what he did, didn't he? I wouldn't call what he did to be random or natural by any means.

The guy is just out of his gore! How he could put up with the pain and blood loss with out passing out and then bag his goodies to brag...I don't think so! I mean come on, what is this? A new way to serve football, sacrificing your own balls for wins?
This was definately the waker-upper of my day.
I've heard and seen stupid sh*t in my life but this one takes the cake!

P.S.- I really enjoyed viewing your pictures. I especially loved the sunset scenes you took.
