A Michigan man has learned not to stick his fingers in certain places.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Victor Harris, of Saginaw, Mich., was pouring a fuel additive into his Lincoln Navigator sport utility vehicle Thursday when a piece of paper fell into the gas tank. Harris tried to fish the paper out, but his index finger became stuck in the gas tank.

WJRT-TV reported Harris tried to extract his digit for two hours before friends called the fire department. It took another two hours before emergency responders cut the gas tank tube out of the vehicle.

Doctors later removed Harris' finger from the tube. He received two stitches.

Harris said he's learned his lesson and won't put his finger back in the gas tank.
