A recent news article, worthy of mention because of its bizarre choice of words:

A naked sunbather suffered minor injuries when he became impaled on a rusty metal spike during a drinking session with friends…As he went to go to the toilet, he slipped and was impaled through the groin on the 8in iron spike.

If a guy slips and gets impaled through the groin by an 8 inch iron spike, it could not possible be referred to as “minor injuries.” What was the author of the article thinking?
