Sent to me by Mom. What can I say? Some people are just idiots.

UPDATED:I've talked to a paramedic over supper a couple of times over the years. He has told me some great stories. Like the idiot who lost fingers when he tried to pick up his running push mower. Mark at The Kansas City Post and My Town, My Take called it Urban legend! I check it out. You & I know that there are idiots out there that shit like that happens to all the time. I still enjoyed the read.

Two words. Urban Legend. :-)

I've heard this one in many forms over the years.

Xavier Onassis said...

Yeah, me too. That "columnist" should be fired for blatant internet plagerism.

Maybe I can get a job working for a small town newspaper cutting and pasting shit from the internets and calling it My Column.

That being said, it sounds like just the sort of thing that would happen to me.

If I owned a motorcycle.

And if I smoked.

And if I was married.

I once drove a motorcycle into an electric fence. I always thought that sounded like the start to a good story. I wish I could remember what happened next. I think it involved me peeing myself but I would probably leave that part out in my version of the legend.

I'm quite the rebel - the rebel who drove his motorcycle into an electric fence, peed himself and then lost consciousness. Smokin'....

XO, isn't that essentially what you do now?

Speaking of missing fingers...

I knew a dude in college who cut four of his fingers on his left hand off while working with a power saw in the architecture studios.

He sued the university and it came out that earlier in his life he had managed to chop off three of his toes in a lawn mowing accident.

We nicknamed him "Stumpy"

Ummm, yeah.

What's your point?
