In 2016, a bloke stuck a metal stainless-steel chopstick up his penis after he started to pee blood and decided to inspect his own equipment.
The native of Hangzhou City's Yuhang District, in the capital of East China's Zhejiang Province, was too shy to visit a doctor about the issue and decided to run his own diagnostics – with the 18-centimetre (7.09-inch) stainless-steel chopstick.
Chen said he thought his urethra was "broken", so he inserted the tip of the chopstick into his penis to "check", but after ramming it further up his member, he could not get it back out again.
