Ever been sitting down and thought, 'My ears are so lazy. I think I'll give them something else to do besides picking up sound waves, keeping my spectacles in place and gathering wax'?

No? Well this man did. His name's Li Xiwen (pronounced "xiwen") and he pulled a Ford Mondeo ten metres with it attached to his left ear using a rope.
He performed the marvellously pointless feat at a used car show in Zaozhuang, northern China, in front of a bemused crowd and a police officer.

Mr Xiwen is a folk artist, which is probably why he was pulling the car with his ear – to protect his guitar-playing hands. Obviously, as a musician his ears are entirely expendable.

Here's another bout of freakish car pulling if you're into this sort of thing.
