Darwin Award Nominee

He might not die from his wounds, but he won't be continuing his bloodline either...

LONDON (Reuters) - A Welsh rugby fan cut off his own testicles to celebrate Wales beating England at rugby, the Daily Mirror reported Tuesday.

Geoff Huish, 26, was so convinced England would win Saturday's match he told fellow drinkers at a social club, "If Wales win I'll cut my balls off," the paper said.

Friends at the club in Caerphilly, south Wales, thought he was joking.

But after the game Huish went home, severed his testicles with a knife, and walked 200 yards back to the bar with the testicles to show the shocked drinkers what he had done.

Huish was taken to hospital where he remained in serious condition, the paper said.

In potentially related news the creator of Dolly the cloned sheep has gotten a human cloning license.

You know how some mental illnesses or manisfestations of mental illness may at one time be rare but become more and more common? For example: anorexia/buliemia or cutting. I wonder if cutting off genitalia is also gaining in popularity.
