Sean Murphy of South Yorkshire, England, had a wart on the middle finger of his left hand for five years. He tried creams, ointments and doctors but, alas, it wouldn’t go away. So he took matters into his own hands. Literally. He drank several pints of beer for an anaesthetic, then aimed a 12-gauge shotgun at the wart. “‘The wart was gone and so was most of my finger,” he said. He received a 16-week suspended sentence for illegal possession of a firearm, has to complete 100 hours of unpaid community work, paid court costs of $161, and will have to flip people off with his right hand from now on.
