Horse 768 - Please Kick Me In The Nads

Read On:
Or in case this link doesn't work - here is the story below:

According to Canadian police Friday, a man in small town Guelph, Ontario has been approaching women on the street and asking them to kick him in the groin. Six women reported incidents to police in recent months, Sergeant Cate Welsh told AFP. On two occasions, the man approached on a bicycle.

"Some of the women obliged him," she said. "I would imagine it would be quite painful, but he didn't make a peep, just stood up and went on his way." "It's hard to imagine what motivated him," she said. "It's very strange." Sleepy Guelph, with a population of 120,000, is located about 90 kilometers (45 miles) west of Toronto.

The suspect, described only as a Caucasian man in his early 20s, with a goatee and a large gap between his front teeth, faces six charges of mischief. None of the women were harmed.

It's not everyday that a chap offers ladies the chance to kick him in the groin, you have to admit. Now, I wonder if this really is a man, or a woman pretending to be a man, or the man has some sort of protector on, or the man is an really an alien wanting to know what all the fuss about groin injuries is. I like how the man "faces six charges of mischief." Brilliant, that they have a law to cover such things.

This does however, remind me of the episode of ER where this guy is practicing a theory of his that, asking only two questions, he can learn enough about a person to come up with an insult that will make them hit him.

So then ladies, who of you out there are actually prepared to kick him in the nads and give them one of those boots from a suit of armor? I'm thinking of the kind that have a blade or spike at the toe. I wonder if he'd then ask you you kick him - somehow I suspect not.

I guess that this is further proof that the world is not only stranger than we imagine but stranger than we can imagine.
