Man gets testicle trapped in Ikea chair

Sitting there and noticing the accident, I bent down to see what the f--k happened...

A Norwegian man has taken to Facebook to complain about how one of his testicles became trapped while sitting on an Ikea chair.

In a public post to the Swedish furniture giant’s Facebook page, Claus Jørstad, of Alta in Norway, claimed he bought a plastic Ikea stool to help him shower after a knee injury but the seat, which was supposed to help, put him in a rather precarious shower situation.

While in the shower washing Mr Jørstad said a burst of cold water shrunk one of his testicles and it slotted into one of the holes that features at the top of the Marius chair.

Then when the water heated the 45-year-old’s genitals expanded to their normal size and soon the man realised that one of his “sailors” – as he put it – was wedged in the hole.

“Sitting there and noticing the accident, I bent down to see what the f–k happened, I realised the little nutter has got stuck,” Mr Jørstad told MailOnline.

“I couldn’t f–king move. Imagine an angry Irishman having an incident, cursing his way.”

After a while of sitting – trying to think of how to get out of the situation – the father-of-three says he was trapped for so long that the hot water eventually ran out and he ultimately was freed by the same method he was caught; cold water.

“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,” Mr Jørstad quipped.

It was only when the freezing man risked electrocution and reached for the hairdryer to warm part of himself that he realised his tackle has come loose again.

“It was when I reached for the dryer I realised I was a free man,” he said.

Mr Jørstad, who works as a photographer, described his whole hilarious ordeal on the Ikea Facebook page in a post that has been shared more than 10 thousand times and sparked sidesplitting discussion.

A spokesperson from Ikea responded to the tongue-and-cheek complaint and kept their message true to Claus’ use of maritime metaphor.

“Hey Claus. 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,” the staffer posted.

“If you choose to keep it in the shower, make sure you are well dressed for your next sea excursion.”
