Cut Off Your Own Nose Despite … Ooops.

DECAPITED1.jpgYou’re about to be evicted and your apartment of eight years is about to be demolished, and sit-ins just don’t cut it anymore. So, to stress the point, drastic measures are necessary. We’re talking self-decapitation, folks. No better form of protest, wouldn’t you say?

A ‘vulnerable’ man cut off his own head with a chainsaw after being ordered to move out of his home to make way for developers, police believe.
David Phyall’s severed head was found beside the power tool inside his housing association flat shortly after receiving his eviction notice.
Detectives were today investigating the possibility that the 58-year-old killed himself rather than leave his home of eight years.

Not an easy feat, folks — how do you remain conscious long enough to slice your own goddamn head off? The neck stem ain’t exactly butter, you know?

At the risk of sounding like an asshole, the phrase is "to cut off one's nose to spite one's face," not despite it.

That's gotta be bullshit!

Yeah, the phrase is "to cut your nose off to spite your face," but maybe the new phrase should be "to cut your head off despite it BEING YOUR FUCKING HEAD." Good God.
