honey, why is that handle sticking out of your back?

Last week in Russia, Yuri Lalin, 53, had a few drinks with one of his co-workers. Yuri's friend is a night-watchman. So, they drank together, after hours, at the job site.

Unfortunately, during the course of the evening, the two men had an argument. After the argument, Yuri went to sleep.

In the morning, Yuri woke up and found that he was still at work. So, he took a bus home, cooked up some sausage for breakfast, and then lay down and went to sleep.

Yuri slept like a baby for a couple of hours... until his wife noticed something odd: Larry's back seemed to have a handle sticking out of it.

No, wait. Not just a handle. Upon closer inspection, she realized that it was a knife handle... and it was attached to a six-inch blade that was embedded in Yuri's back.

Yuri was rushed to the hospital where the knife was safely removed. Fortunately, the blade missed all of Yuri's vital organs and he is fine. Yuri's friend is facing criminal charges.

Yuri holds no grudge about the incident. He is quoted as saying, "We were drinking and what doesn't happen when you're drunk?"

I'm guessing Yuri sleeps on his stomach.
