Had he been wearing his Speedo, none of that would have happened.

A well placed bowl of ice and the chair would not have had to be damaged.

First of all, that isn't the part that shrinks. In fact, as far as I know (and I do not claim to have studied this in depth) they do not shrink but they do tend to retract. Therefore this man had a most unusual combination of not only shrinkage, but hangage (the state of hanging) at the same time. They had to have shrunk but have been hanging pretty far down (I will avoid the word "low" -- oops! there it is) for this to happen.

Smells fishy to me...

I think the scenario is quite possible.

Let's see......sitting on a chaise with legs straddling the sides. Leaning forward to eat or something.
The berries could go "low" enough.
