A 56-year-old unemployed man in Austria had an appointment with the labor office last week to determine if he was healthy enough to go back to work. So just hours before the meeting, he reportedly used an electric saw to cut his left foot off just above the ankle. He tossed the foot into his oven and called an ambulance. Why? He didn’t want to be found healthy enough to go back to work.

- Mission Accomplished! 

- He’d heard the expression “cutting off your nose to spite your face” but just mixed up the body parts. 

- Turns out the joke’s on him… they assigned him to a job at IHOP.
