Barnacle Willy

‘IT’S one of the more unusual dangers of summer, but let this be a lesson to anyone thinking of falling asleep on a beach. The Glas Javnosti newspaper reports that a 23-year-old who was lying in shallow water to escape the heat in Bor, Yugoslavia, ended up in hospital after a barnacle attached itself to his penis.

Unable to remove it himself, he went to the accident and emergency department of the local hospital, where a nurse failed to remove it with tweezers. The crustacean was only detached after the man got an unplanned erection. The embarrassed sunbather was sent home. The fate of the barnacle is not known. ‘
