And I thought last weekend's episode of Game of Thrones would suffice as a week's worth of squirming at the memory of the blurred abrupt demise of Theon Greyjoy's trusted member.
But every once (or twice) in a while, real-life stories will surface, involving some strange fellas and the (coughs) razor-sharp contempt they hold for their one-eyed monster. Which leaves us sane folk contorting our face into a hybrid look of disgust and discomfort and feeling the need to want to shout out….."How'd you get the beans above the frank?!" (well, maybe not exactly. But you'd still have the same look on your face and my excuse to fit in one of my favorite quotes.)
One such situation happened just a little over a week ago in Daegu, when a Korean gentleman was at Dongdaegu Station and talking to an attendant at the ticket office, when he suddenly had the notion to pull out a box cutter, take off his clothes, and attempt to cut off his penis. Luckily, a bystander intervened before the task could be completed. The individual stated to police, “I have bad memories of my childhood, so I don’t wish to have kids and risk them also having a difficult upbringing.”
And just a few days ago on May 12, another unrelated case involved a different individual in Daegu, attempting to cut his penis at Jungangno Subway Station and creating a fuss upon the arrival of police. Days later on the 15th, the same man returned to the station and fell onto the subway tracks and lost both of his legs below the knee, after being hit by an arriving subway train.
The police are planning to investigate details from the individual's family and witnesses.
Gotta quirky story of similar nature that really happened in Korea or another country? Don't be squeamish. Spill the beans in the comments below.
