When a man saw this chair in IKEA, he thought it could help alleviate his knee pain when he took showers. However, the chair ended up being only the beginning of his pain…
According to Mad World News, Claus Jørstad bought this chair in Norway after he had knee surgery. He never thought that sitting on a stool full of holes could be a bad idea until his testicle got stuck in one of them.
The heat from the shower caused his testicles to expand, and once it was caught in the hole, Jørstad was helpless to free himself. Unable to leave the shower, he desperately tried to think of a way to free himself as the hot water began to gradually run out.
“As you can imagine, the skipper is the captain down there, and the sailors are the two nuts that dangle,”Jørstad wrote on IKEA Norge’s Facebook page. “But then, you are Swedish, and I know that you don’t like direct descriptions of genitals, so I will call them the skipper and his sailors.”
“Sitting there and noticing the accident, I bent down to see what the f— happened, I [realized] the little nutter has got stuck,” Jørstad recounted, according to Daily Mail.
“I couldn’t f—ing move. Imagine an angry Irishman having an incident, cursing his way,” he continued. “And as I couldn’t move, I started pondering how the hell I was gonna get outta the mess. After a lot of pondering forth and back, I [realized] I had no bloody ideas. The water turned cold by itself, so I started freezing. The water got cold. Even more cold than my mother-in-law’s smile when I married her daughter.”
In the end, the cold water saved him, as it caused his testicle to shrink just as he decided to risk electrocution by reaching for a nearby hairdryer to keep warm.
“In despair, I reached for the hairdryer to keep warm while pondering, and that’s when I [realized] the nut has got loose from the squirrel stool. It was when I reached for the dryer I [realized] I was a free man,” Jørstad added.
IKEA quickly responded to his message.
“We recommend that you take the stool out of the shower… or that you sit on it with the right uniform on and in the right setting,” IKEA wrote. “If you choose to keep it in the shower, make sure you are well dressed for your next sea excursion.”
Since his ordeal, Jørstad has placed a cloth over the stool to cover the holes.
