Moral of this story. Don't hang curtains in the nude and don't leave potatoes out on the table.
Speaking of the vicar, A & E nurse Trudi Watson, of Sheffield's Northern General Hospital, said: "He explained to me, quite sincerely, he had been hanging curtains naked in the kitchen when he fell backwards on to the kitchen table and on to a potato.
"But it's not for me to question his story. He had to undergo surgery to have it removed."
My relatives used to be potato merchants. Perhaps there is a new market for the humble spud.
