Could this be a contender for world's most embarrassing accident ? Image Credit: PD - Ministry of Information
The World War II enthusiast required medical assistance for an extremely unfortunate problem indeed.
Accidents can and do happen, that much at least is fair enough; but it's not every day that you hear about bomb disposal experts being called out to deal with a man with a shell stuck in his rectum.

The bizarre series of events began when the anonymous individual was taken to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in England after failing to extract the bomb on his own.

According to reports, the man owned the World War II-era shell and had "fallen on it".
"The guy said he found the shell when he was having a clear out of his stuff," an unnamed source told The Sun. "He said he put it on the floor then he slipped and fell on it - and it went up his..."

Concerned about the potential for the unexploded ordnance to go off, hospital staff had to ask the bomb squad to attend the scene and make sure that the shell didn't pose a threat.

Fortunately it turned out that it was not dangerous and medics were able to remove it successfully.

The patient is expected to make a full recovery, however his reputation probably won't.

Come-on, we all secretly suspect he was butt naked during this "accident", as I think Oversword alluded to. I know people can get weird under substance abuse influence coupled with a sudden overdrive of hormones. Oh wait, how do I know that?

He thought it was a depleted uranium shell. He had atomic piles and wanted a nuclear ****.
