Angler Hooked in Heinie

Published by PETA.

The tables may have turned on a German angler recently. A man ended up with fishing hooks in his rear end after he apparently broke into a hunting and fishing store and fell on the hooks. Police were able to reel him in quickly because he was drunk (shocking, I know) and couldn’t run very fast with barbed hooks in his behind.

How’s that for karma? Hopefully he’ll think twice about picking up a rod and reel now that he knows how much hooks hurt! Or will he need a few through his lips first?
