I'm sore just writing this article.
A bloke in Ghana woke up to a helluva shock recently, after chopping off his own penis and scrotum in his sleep.
47-year-old Kofi Atta doze off in his chair on August 12, and started dreaming about slaughtering a goat. He woke up because of a sharp pain, and was horrified to discover he had a knife in his hand, BBC Pidgin reports.
Half asleep and confused, he stood up from the chair - and that's when he realised his piece was in intense pain. He had mistakenly cut off his own penis and scrotum while he was dreaming.
He called out to his neighbours to help him, and his neighbours called his wife who was travelling home at the time. She arrived home to find her husband "sitting on a chamber pot full of blood, with his penis in his hand," CHOne TV reports. What a sentence.
Atta was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, where they gave him treatment. Thanfully, the injuries weren't thought to be life threatening, although he will need surgery.
Note to self: Don't dream of slaughtering a goat.
