Man pushes sprout up mountain with his nose

Stuart Kettell is attempting to ascend Snowdon in Wales while pushing the vegetable using his face.
The bizarre stunt, which is being undertaken to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, will see the 49-year-old spend at least four days lying on his belly as he attempts to nudge the sprout up the side of the mountain using nothing but his nose.

Kettell, who is from the West Midlands, set off yesterday at 7am on his grueling mission to ascend more than 3,500ft to the summit.

The attempt follows several other peculiar stunts that he has undertaken to raise money for charity including spending a week inside a box, walking along every street in Coventry on stilts and running inside a giant hamster wheel.

"The first day had been gruelling for Stuart," said Richard Crump who is filming Kettell's ascent. "He has no skin on his knees, his neck is hurting and his neck is really tired. But he is still going."

I suggest people watch "Forks Over Knives". There are natural ways to deal with cancer, based on this documentary. It is found on the Canadian Netflix. http://www.forksoverknives.com/

This guy needs to be applauded. I know I wouldn't have done this for charity. But on a humorous note, was the Green Giant consulted before "Sprout" was rolled up hill? It could injure his son. (For those of you old enough to remember the commercials)

It's too early. I read that a man is pushing a sprout up his nose.

It could be he chose such a bizarre thing to do in the hope of attracting more publicity and potential donations for the charity. Who cares really what he does, it's the end result that counts so good luck to him. I've walked up Mount Snowdon, it's quite a hike in parts so he has taken on a difficult challenge in more ways than one.

Well done to him and good luck, but what happens if it cant control it and it falls/ rolls back to the bottom of the mountain?

My first thought was, like his friend said, the sprout will fall apart really quickly. He should have chosen something more hardy, like an artichoke. or a pineapple. I also thought to myself, "Oh, another crazy Welshman", but then they said he was actually an Englishman.
