A Malaysian welder had to have a nut removed from around his penis after an attempt to do something else entirely backfired.
The man was apparently trying to lengthen his penis before he gets engaged next week but the idea went embarrassingly wrong and the nut got stuck on his penis following an erection.
Unfortunately, staff from the Sultanah Aminah hospital had to drain some blood from the penis and cut away a top layer of skin before the object could be removed, reports the Star newspaper.
It reported the fire and rescue department were also involved in trying to remove the nut from the unnamed welder -- who was said to be in his 20s.
He had hoped the nut would weigh down his penis to make it longer.
