'Jackass' Star Steve-O Shows Solidarity With Dogs By Getting A Vasectomy
Steve-O is... well, let's just say 'a bit of an eccentric'. He's made a career about putting himself in the centre of dangerous and disgusting situations, whether getting a tattoo of his own face on his back, stapling his own scrotum to his leg or putting a stinging jellyfish on his own head.
Oh, and then there's the act of shooting fireworks from his arse crack, doing lines of wasabi, putting a leech on his eyeball, piercing his butt cheeks together, getting fired into the air in a full-to-the-brim portaloo... yeah, you get the point.
Well, now the former Jackass star, real name Stephen Gilchrist Glover, might just have picked his biggest battle yet: he has announced that he's getting a vasectomy in solidarity with thousands of dogs.
The 43-year-old was spotted by TMZ at Los Angeles' LAX airport with his beloved dog Wendy, en route to Puerto Rico. Once there, he will be helping out with the clearing-up efforts after Hurricane Maria, which struck the island back in September, as well as neutering over 1,000 cats and dogs.
Turns out it's a cause he truly believes in - so much so, he's going to follow suit.
"I believe in the cause so much I'm getting fixed too," he told TMZ's reporter.
"You bet I am, pal," he responded when asked if he really was getting a vasectomy. "Because I want one. I want my girl to be able to hump and dump all the time with me."
When asked about the effects of the procedure - not being able to have kids - he answered: "I know - I don't want any part of anything that comes out of my wiener."
He later joked: "When I was a kid I heard a joke: what is the definition of macho? A man who jogs home from his own vasectomy."
Asked if that is what he intends to do, Stevo-O confirmed that he plans to do even more than jog home - he's going to film the whole thing.
Steve-O recently made the news by posting to Twitter to celebrate a decade of sober living. He wrote:
Hard to believe it's been an entire decade since I've had a drink or a drug. I just can't put into words how grateful I am for @realjknoxville and the rest of the guys who locked me up in a psychiatric ward on March 9, 2008, where this journey began. Thank you, dudes, I love you. pic.twitter.com/10dUWO5ViZ
