Welsh Rugby Fan Cuts Off Testicles After Win

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

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

Wales's subsequent 11-9 victory over England at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff was their first home win over England in 12 years.

So after the game Huish went home, severed his testicles with a knife, and walked 200 metres 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 a seriously ill condition, the paper said. Police told the paper he had "a history of mental problems". No kiddin'?!

That must make him the 'only eunuch in the village'. Let's hope so eh.
