He couldn't have sued anyway. He had no leg to stand on.

In a way, it's good news for him that he was successful and didn't die. Not so much for the rest of us. Now it'll be DIY leaflets at hospitals. Cut down the waiting lists... literally, and surgery costs

Tis the season for chopping off your own hand... next month, feet?

I know surgery was expensive but this brings a whole new meaning to a "Five Finger Discount"...

I know it was nobody from Weird cutting off any hands. Someone's still giving icons.

This surgery he did on himself wasn't any less expensive. Look what he had to give up.

Or teaching someone else to do the missing parts in sync with him.

Hey, there was once a one-armed typing champion. He was proud of his typing ability and went home to help out on the family farm over the summer, and he lost a hand in the equipment. But he was determined to type anyway, and winning the typing championship after getting maimed put a lot of other people to shame. He was doing more with one hand than most were doing with two.

I wonder if he sterilized the guillotine blade before he performed the amputation?

Typical case of one hand getting jealous of the other and offing it.
