Cage fighter

| July 4, 2013

In a bid to quit smoking, a man in Turkey’s Kütahya province has taken to wearing a locked wire cage on his head, according to a Hurriyet story.

The shape of the cage seems to resemble that of a small diving helmet or goldfish bowl. It has locks on two sides.

İbrahim Yücel, who is trying to quit his 26-year habit of smoking two packs of cigarettes a day, locks the cage around his head and gives the keys to his wife and daughter when he leaves home each day.

The wire mesh is such that while he can see, he cannot smoke.

Presumably, he cannot eat or drink; so the device might get taken up by those fighting obesity.

And it could find a place in the world of fashion—at least on the grunge side.
