A 63-year-old man made headlines this week by trying to fix his own hernia using a butter knife.
Police who arrived at his home were shocked to discover him on a lounge chair with the knife sticking out of his abdomen. Even more bizarre is what he did next - after pulling the knife out himself he proceeded to insert the cigarette he was smoking in to the wound.
