A man was forced to undergo a penis amputation after getting his manhood stuck in a bottle for four days - while using it as a sex toy.
The 50-year-old guy put himself in the predicament after using the plastic item for pleasurable reasons - but he was initially reluctant to get help due to the embarrassing situation. Eventually, the man's member turned black, so he sought assistance, but he will never have sex again due to the op. His surgeon, Dr Dennis Chirinos, told HSH Television Digital: "It's a strange case, it's happened before, but it's still strange.
We had a 50-year-old patient, that, because he didn't have a girlfriend or a wife, wanted to relieve his sexual frustration. So he put his penis in a bottle and this caused the death and necrosis of the penis. When he arrived four days later, we had to amputate the penis completely because it was completely dead. When you put your penis into a bottle it causes a constriction in the blood vessels of the penis and within four hours you can lose the penis".
A race has taken place between a hare and a tortoise - with the latter coming out on top. YouTuber Nick Sina uploaded a clip of the contest, a nod to the famous Aesop's Fable The Tortoise and the Hare, in which the slower creature wins by being "slow and steady", and, remarkably, it played out the same in real life. In the race, the hare, who was actually a rabbit on this occasion, took an early lead and looked set to win with ease before it started chilling out far too much. But after slowing up considerably, the sluggish tortoise kept on at its painstakingly slow pace all the way over the finish line before the lazy bunny could catch up.
A chef has created a beer holder made of pizza.
The Vulgar Chef, who boasts more than 114,000 fans on Facebook, has come up with the unusual idea to enable people to eat and drink at the same time.
In his latest YouTube video, he is seen trying out his idea, titled 'pizza beer koozie', which is essentially cooked pizza dough wrapped around a beer can.
He describes it as a "completely ridiculous, totally inconvenient but still delicious" pizza koozie, which he insists is a "world first". The Vulgar Chef is known for his regular expletive-filled Facebook posts of unusual recipes.
Vladimir Putin's new calendar features him in a series of situations - including a picture of him cuddling a cat.
The Russian president has come under fire for launching airstrikes in the Syrian city of Aleppo, but you wouldn't think he is capable of being such a hard-nosed politician if you had a quick glance at his 2017 calendar. Fans of Putin might be particularly glad for the month of March next year as they will have a whole 31 days to gaze at the president embracing a small pussy.
The February picture is of Putin complete with ski gear while standing next to a smiling child, and one image shows him in a skin-tight wetsuit on a beach clutching what appears to be old artefact.
What's more, Russian farmers might be keen to see that the photo for the month of August shows Putin climbing on to a combine harvester.
