Man! that's gotta hurt!

ATT910251 (WinCE) (Small).jpg

Yeah, the guy has a fence post up his ass. I think I know how he feels--- after all, I've been to divorce court.

This is an actual emergency room photo of a fisherman who lost control of his high-speed bass boat in West Virginia. Wardens believe that he was traveling at a speed of approximately 75 mph at the time of the accident. He was unable to negotiate a curve in the narrow waterway. Unfortunately for him, upon striking the shoreline and being ejected from the boat he landed back end first on an old fence post.

You can probably picture what happened next, but the attached picture really says it all. The good news is that after about 6 months, this man made a full recovery after suffering a shattered hip, broken
leg, several broken ribs, internal injuries and soft tissue damage.
Doctors credited his recovery to the fact that the post lodged itself so tightly that there was little or no blood loss.

I thought about running a caption contest on this one, but I shuddered to think of the clever suggestions some of MY readers might invent, such as, "Well, that's ONE way to stop a stubborn case of diarrhea." Besides, I think the poor fellow has suffered enough already.

I'm glad that he's okay now, but I'll bet his farts sound funny as hell.

(Thanks to Jim Gladieux for the story and the picture.)

Looks like it was a pretty good fit. I wonder if he had been at a gay biker bar the night before?

Now he can lay claim to having actually:

1 - had wood

2 - shit a log.

I didn't expect to see THAT when I signed on.

I'm an ER nurse and that made ME woozy!

Glad to know the guy is okay.

And I thought only the medical folk had a sick/funny arsenal of jokes.

You beat us all out!

What the Hell are you talking about?!? After something like that he'd never be able to build up enough pressure to fart.

What is spooky, and what you don't notice at first, is this guy is laying on his back. Snopes says it was Arkansas and he died.

Rob, WTF did they do to you in Costa Rica? First road rash and now this!??!

Posted by: Elisson on March 8, 2006 09:07 PM

Snopes calls bullshit on the bass boat story.

Posted by: rightisright on March 8, 2006 09:59 PM

I saw that pic some time back. The account I read said it was an Aussie who had a few beers and jumped off a balcony for some unknown reason.

Now that is an extreme butt plug.

Posted by: Dan on March 8, 2006 10:26 PM

I too have seen that before.
Still makes me wince, and I drove a meat wagon for years.

Sure, no caption, but I'll run with a headline. "Fisherman wrecks his boat, gets new pole".

I thought someone had snuck a picture of my dick, for a moment.

Bane, Bane, oh he of the mighty peni.

So Petro is it the same pic?

I can't see pics on this blog, don't know why, but they don't display.

Look at the RN in the background. She has thelook like "I've been there before"

Caption:

"...kill me...., kill me....."

Any fool knows you can't get a bass boat up to 75 miles per hour.

65, tops.

Posted by: McGehee on March 9, 2006 10:14 AM

A lot of Bass boats will run over 75 MPH, maybe not safely but they will get there. When I purchased mine it was rated the worlds fastest 17' with a 150 HP at 87.02 MPH. Me , i'm satisfied to stay under 50MPH on the water but if you want to 'fly' em they're out there.

Posted by: scrapiron on March 9, 2006 12:01 PM

Yes and no.

The photo is descibed as "Evidently genuine", but the "bass boat accident" explanation is new for 2006; previously it was ascribed to a motorcylcing incident.

Posted by: Sigivald on March 9, 2006 01:53 PM

.. Jesus Christ, Rob... post again to move that shit farther down the page... damn, brother....

Posted by: Eric on March 9, 2006 04:55 PM

Is the bass boat okay?

Posted by: Mark on March 9, 2006 05:05 PM

I'm with Eric. For Godssake post something else. That sumbitch is crucified enough, already.

Posted by: outfoxed on March 9, 2006 05:13 PM

.... thank you, Outfoxed.... that shit is just nasty....

Posted by: Eric on March 9, 2006 08:42 PM

That is just appalling.

I can't believe that anyone was of a mind to TAKE that picture!

Posted by: Nancy on March 9, 2006 10:38 PM

I know some women who would love to have a go at that boner.

Posted by: rightisright on March 9, 2006 11:30 PM

Let's count the number of people who mention Snopes and think they're being original.

Posted by: Steve H. on March 10, 2006 11:39 AM

Now, now, Steve. I never claimed there was anything original about mentioning it.

Any more than there's anything original about tormenting spammers; originality isn't the thing.
