Looking for a good excuse to get a day off work?

A man in China phoned his colleagues to inform them of an almost unbelievable set of circumstances.

"I can’t come into work today.

"I have a sword stuck in my bum," Mr Kao (54) told an astonished co-worker. report that Kao was attempting to treat his own piles using a toy sword to ‘snip’ the painful hemorrhoids.

Regrettably, he slipped while performing the task and the pointed weapon disappeared up into his body.

He was rushed to hospital in Hangzhou City, China where he was greeted by crowds of reporters who had been tipped off as to his tale of woe.

One asked "Were you crouching over the mirror while you were trying to do it?"

Another probed "Did it accidentally slip while you were trying to sit down?"

Kao tersely replied, ‘Yes’ to both queries.

Miraculously, doctors were able to remove the blood-soaked three-inch toy sword.

They then informed Kao that he had not been suffering from piles, just common itch.
