File Under "Better You Than Me"

Not always your friend.

This may be the worst headline I've ever read.

Austrian nails testicle to roof.
An Austrian roofer who slipped on the job ended up nailing himself to the roof - through his wedding tackle.

According to Ananova, 59-year-old August Voegl of Jennersdorf "shot the four-inch nail into his left testicle with the compressed air nail gun" and was thereafter "unable to extract it or pull himself away from the roof".

It was left to emergency medics to separate Voegl from the building and, after being whisked to hospital by air ambulance, he's reportedly "recovering well" following surgery.
And you thought you were having a bad day at work.
