The thought of tearing my urethra kind of makes me want to die. So I’m going to let Johnny take this one:
Johnny Knoxville is looking forward to regaining his “manly functions”.
The prankster, who nearly lost his testicles when a stunt for MTV show ‘Jackass’ went wrong, is hoping to soon return to his normal life after having an operation to mend his torn urethra.
He said: “I just walked out of surgery about 10 minutes ago. I’m still a little groggy from the anaesthesia.
“I was trying to back flip a motorcycle. The bike goes up about 15 or 20 ft in the air and comes back down and breaks its handlebar off in between my legs. I was laying there spread-eagled. They’ve never seen handlebars break off before-much less between someone’s legs!
“I just got the catheter out, after wearing it for two weeks, and the doctor said I can resume normal functions immediately – like, my manly functions.”
When you have millions of dollars, maybe it’s time to call it a day on the ol’ urethra-tearing tricks for TV.
