Firefighters in London have had the unenviable task of rescuing an elderly man who got his penis stuck in a toaster.
The man didn't divulge exactly how his appendage became caught in the household device, but thankfully firefighters were able to safely extricate the body part, The Mirror reports.
Firefighter Dave Brown revealed that embarrassing incidents like this are quite common: "I don't know whether it's the Fifty Shades effect, but the number of incidents involving items like handcuffs seems to have gone up".
Some of the awkward incidents that Third Officer Brown and his team have been called out to over the last three years include:
18 incidents that saw children get their heads stuck in toilet seats or potties.
Five incidents involving people's hands being caught in shredders.
79 incidents of people being trapped in handcuffs.
