Boy Stuck in Refrigerator, Eats Own Foot

Korea- After sustaining major blood loss from eating his foot, 8 year old boy, Bimpu, is carried back from the hospital by his wife. The boy had been trapped in his refrigerator for over three days, and claimed, "After the first day, I had eaten all the food. Come day two, I could feel that my body was beginning to shut down from starvation. I had no choice. Plus, it was pretty dark in there, so I simply envisioned my foot as a chunk of ham." Doctors claimed the wound appeared to be almost surgically incised, as if the boy had bitten off the entire foot at once. "There is no possibility that numerous nibbles could have done this. It is actually quite astonishing," claims Dr. Ha-neul, "The final analysis revealed that one large bite took off the entire foot."

All your durians are belong to us!

If you were planning on eating your "King of Fruits" on the Singaporean MRT, you had better say goodbye to your family first. The punishment is unlisted, but it is implied. They do resemble grenades, though, or waterballoons. Not surprisingly, the punishment for waterballoons in Singapore is also death.
