A 70-year-old man in Canberra, Australia showed up at a hospital's emergency department with a 4-inch fork lodged in his penis.
The steel cutlery item was inserted into his urethra for his sexual gratification, a write-up in the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports said. It remains uncertain how the patient thought that could be achieved.
The fork was not visible from the outside but doctors were able to feel it.
"The motives for insertion of a variety of objects are difficult to comprehend", the report, titled "An Unusual Urethral Foreign Body," said. Understatement of the year.
