Man Gets Rid Of Wart By Shooting Off Finger

A man in England recently had a painful wart that he just couldn’t get rid of. After seeing doctors and trying everything he could, Sean Murphy decided to take matters into his own hands – he used a shot gun to get rid of the wart!

I can understand why a wart could be a nuisance, but this move was rather desperate. True, Murphy got rid of his wart, but he also eliminated most of his left middle finger in the process.

In a move that seems fitting of the Wild West, rather than modern England, the security guard fortified himself with a healthy dose of the local anaesthetic — in lager form, naturally — stretched out his left hand, aimed, and pulled the trigger.

Unfortunately, he’s also been charged with illegal possession of a firearm.

With just a stump to show for his efforts, Murphy appeared in court earlier this week and was handed a suspended 16-week prison sentence and 100 hours of community service. [Says Murphy] “I know I could have gone to jail for up to 15 years for a firearms offence. My solicitor did a very good job.”

Despite all the trouble he caused, Murphy stood by his decision, telling the Yorkshire Post: “The best thing is that the wart has gone. It was giving me a lot of trouble.”

That’s one mean wart. I don’t know that I could have pulled the trigger, so a part of me gives kudos to this moron, but a part of me is left shaking my head.
