A vicar, some curtains, and a potato

From the not-a-believable-story files, comes this, uh, gem:
A vicar attended hospital with a potato stuck up his bottom - and claimed it got there after he fell on to the vegetable while naked.

The clergyman, in his 50s, told nurses he had been hanging curtains when he fell backwards on to his kitchen table.

He happened to be nude at the time of the mishap, said the vicar, who insisted he had not been playing a sex game.

The vicar had to undergo a delicate operation to extract the vegetable, one of a range of odd items medics in Sheffield have had to remove from people's backsides or genitals.

Article here. Ah, the old Hanging-Curtains-While-Naked-and-Falling-on-a-Potato-that-Lodged-Up-Your-Rectum excuse. How many times have we heard that before? :)
