It's being called "the most interesting opening paragraph Wikipedia has ever published." It opens an entry about British army officer Sir Adrian Carton de Wiart.
"Lieutenant-General Sir Adrian Paul Ghislain Carton de Wiart VC, KBE, CB, CMG, DSO (5 May 1880 - 5 June 1963), was a British Army officer of Belgian and Irish descent. He fought in the Boer War, World War I, and World War II,
was shot in the face, head, stomach, ankle, leg, hip and ear, survived a
plane crash, tunneled out of a POW camp, and bit off his own fingers
when a doctor wouldn't amputate them. He later said "frankly I had
enjoyed the war."
