Female kidney turns lumberjack on to housework

A Croatia lumberjack claims he started 'enjoying housework and knitting' after he was given a female kidney..

Stjepan Lizacic, 56, from Osijek, is suing his local health authority because he says he's become a laughing stock.

He says his life changed from enjoying heavy drinking sessions with pals to prefering housework after the operation.

He told local newspaper 24sata: "The kidney transplant saved my life, but they never warned me about the side effects.

"I have developed a strange passion for female jobs like ironing, sewing, washing dishes, sorting clothes in wardrobes and even knitting."

He pointed out that before the kidney transplant he would not have been seen dead doing the housework, and expected his wife to do it all, but now found it both relaxing and fulfilling.

He said: "My wife is the only one that is pleased. I do most of the housework now, and I blame the hospital that transplanted me the kidney of a 50-year-old woman instead of a man's kidney."

His wife Radmila added: "If the new femine side to him is confined to housework I am very happy, I only hope he doesn't start looking at other men."

What can one say? Absolutely stunned. Ungrateful man. If that was me, I'd be counting my blessings that I'm still alive.

Agreed Bruey, I'd be grateful to have a longer life. For those who are laughing, they only cared about him when he could drink with them. They weren't at deaths door with him.

It does have an interesting twist though. Allegedly God used the first operation to take one of Adams' ribs out to make Eve. Hmmmmm.

Perchance he is just after some extra spending money!!! He might like traditonally female tasks now, but I can't imagine it being due to the new kidney. He has a lot to prove to win his case.
