Firefighters issued a warning after spending three hours freeing a man’s privates from a gym weight.
For reasons probably best left unexplained, the gentleman in question had inserted his member into a 2.5 kilogram dumbbell disc.
When he found his manhood was trapped, emergency services were called.
Over the course of several hours, firefighters used an angle-grinder and a circular saw in an attempt to get the weight off the poor penis.
They were even forced to use a hydraulic tool more often used to free people trapped in car accidents.
The man, from Worms (you couldn’t make it up) in Germany, was sedated as the fire crew went about their delicate operation.
The heroes eventually managed to smash through the weight.

The fire department shared a picture of the smashed disc to warn others about putting their penises in inappropriate places.
The accompanying note on Facebook read: “One person had a very sensitive part of the body trapped in the hole of a 2.5 kg dumbbell disc.”
It finished off by advising: “Please do not imitate such actions.”
The unnamed gentleman’s penis has now gone, er, viral, with more than 35,000 comments on the Facebook post.
Don’t try this at home — or the gym — gentlemen…
