You know that awkward moment you find out your stab proof abs are slightly faulty, and do not, in fact, protect you from being stabbed?
A Russian bodybuilder, who has been working on all his muscles except the most important one, is in hospital after asking a friend to stab him in the stomach because, he claimed, his abs were knife proof.
The Russian Interior Ministry released a statement on Thursday saying the man, whose name was not released, was practicing martial arts techniques with a friend at a party in Rostov-on-Don. It’s at that point when some kind of crazy ‘boys will be boys’ mentality kicked in, and he asked his friend to stab him.
“The owner of the home got a big kitchen knife and asked his guest to stab him in the stomach. He refused at first, saying he was afraid he would kill the host. However, the host said that in his childhood he was involved in martial arts and the knife could not penetrate his abs,” the statement read.
Unsurprisingly, that turned out to be total BS and he soon found himself hospitalised with a serious stomach wound. His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, but he is likely to be in some discomfort for the foreseeable future.
The man is being charged under Article 111 of the Criminal Code, with causing serious bodily injury. He could face up to eight years imprisonment if convicted.
As for the man with the stab proof abs – natural selection strikes again.
