So Mikey, the kid who impaled his face on a tree branch in my Fuggin Ouch post below, is going to get his "15 minutes of fame" from that unfortunate crash and face placement. According to his dad, Tru-TV and The Travel Channel's "When Vacations Attack" have already made him offers on the video. I guess it's cool he's going to make some cash off of this, but what a fucked up way to get your 15 minutes...
I didn't get my buddy's email update until it was too late to call him tonight, but I can't wait to hear the motherfucker try to explain this picture to me. Really. I'm looking forward to hearing why they went home first and took pictures instead of making a fucking b-line straight to the nearest hospital? I mean what the fuck!? Poor kid. It would've taken me every last bit of restraint in my body to not just rip that foreign object out of my flesh.
Anyway, this is a couple hours post-accident. Obviously, pre-treatment. WTF!
UPDATE: It turns out that it was all Mikey's idea to go to his buddy's house before the hospital to show him in person his brand new "sliver". I suppose I may have done the same thing when I was 17 years old. Showing off injuries, scars, etc. has always been a common past time among teenage dudes. Nowdays, fuck that! To hell with everyone else. They can catch the youtube clip of it. Get this fucking thing out of my face STAT!
