I'm a girl, but even I am wincing just reading that headline.

"A piece of galvanised pipe penetrated just above the knee and came out through his buttocks."

Well, the groin is somewhere in that vicinity.

Oh good lord. This is scary. Yikes!
2002-03-26 01:58:03 AM  
YEEEEEEEOWWWWWW!!!!! oh MAN!!!! aaaaaaugh!!!!
2002-03-26 01:59:04 AM  
Uhm, OUCH!!!!
But, im confused, right above the knee, and out the buttox?
for some reason I cant picture it.
maybe someone can do a photoshop pic of it.
What happened to the bone that is in the thigh, that should have stopped that pipe somewhere in there?
Or was it in the back of the thigh?
eh who knows...

Now that will ruin your farking day right there.
2002-03-26 02:04:27 AM  
bet that's gonna sting.

Hey Astra, who sat on your hat, man? Ow.
2002-03-26 02:05:05 AM  
It would certainly ruin my day, until I met some busty nurse and 'accidentally' dropped my pen.

Its a lousy photoshop I did a while back. Screenshot from Harry Potter, if you didn't notice. I'm working on a better movie-themed portrait to replace it, but this whole homework thing gets in the way.

""The driver was looking into the sun and didn't realise the gate wasn't completely open," a spokesman for the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service said."

Yeah, whenever I drive I ALWAYS look directly in the sun.

I *think* I can describe the injury based on the entry/exit points.

It entered just sbove his right knee, travelled transversly through the quadriceps (muscles on the front of the thigh), through the opening in the hip that all of his plumbing *WENT* through; and, finally, exited through his (probably) left buttock. This assumes that:

1)He drove on the right-hand side,

2) drove in standing position. There are garbage trucks that are designed this way,

3) the pole travelled in a ventral (belly) to dorsal (back) manner.

No matter how you slice it (pun intended), it's gonna hurt.

You ever get kicked in the boys so hard your pee looks like coke (or pepsi)?

"Someone call a proctologist!"
2002-03-26 02:16:58 AM  
Ouch. Saw something like this when I was a medical student, except it involved a construction worker falling on a piece of rebar. Not a pretty sight.
2002-03-26 02:19:45 AM  
ArmyOfFun- No, but once though I took medicine that made it look like Mountain Dew.
2002-03-26 02:22:00 AM  
In visualizing this, it may help to remember that this was a fence pole. The two-inch wide thing that holds up a chain-link fence. Sounds like it hit right above the knee, inside the femur, traveled up the inside of the thigh (ouch), and exited right between the meat of the buttock and the arse (double ouch).

I hope he was out of it for the rescue attempt, but I doubt it....

A wooden nickel says this dumb-ass tries to sue someone over his own incompetence!

I like my nickel's made of nickel

"...didn't realise the gate wasn't completely open,"

How do gates open in Australia? They point metal rods at you and stab you if you get a little impatient?

SLAYERSWINE-beat me to it!!

"A GARBAGE truck driver was impaled on a metal pipe after it pierced the cabin of his vehicle, rescue services said."

What the hell kind of fence can PIERCE A GARBAGE TRUCK?!

Poor bastard.
2002-03-26 02:37:58 AM  
Hey, is that a metal rod impaling your groin, or are you just glad to see me?
2002-03-26 02:44:11 AM  
If all else fails he could make a good lighting rod!
Forgive me...
2002-03-26 02:46:29 AM  
better him than me

"Wow, that Viagra really works. I took some last night and I still feel like I've got a metal pipe in my pants."

I'm going to Hell.

You guys remember that old Arnie flick "Commando"? (it's the one with a little 12 yr old Alyssa Milano in it, and Arnie just shoots a bunch of assholes up Rambo style) If so, this phrase should bring back some Schwarzenegger memories:

"Let off some steam"

Nothing like a non-witty Arnie witicism to start a day.
2002-03-26 03:05:09 AM  
Well thank God the horse is OK. Wouldn't want to upset PETA.

Arnold: "Let out some steam, Bennett!"

Arnold: "Remember I said that I would kill you last?"
Farker Victim: "Yeah! That's Right! You said that!"
Arnold: "I lied!"
Farker Victim gets let go: SPLAT!

Hot chick: "What did you do with the guy?"

Arnold: "I let him go!"

Another funny line...after he cracks the guy's neck in the airplane and puts his cap over his face, he flags down an airline attendant, "Please don't disturb him during the flight, he's dead tired."
2002-03-26 04:23:00 AM  
Yizuman, the guy's name was Sonny.
2002-03-26 05:24:20 AM  
Don't forget about when Arnie said
Does this suit make me look fat?
In that crappy movie where he was pregnant, whatever it was called
2002-03-26 06:03:39 AM  
I might be able to explain some of this. What if it wasn't the driver who got impaled? How about the guy that hangs on the side of the truck and picks up the garbage? I know this goes against the article, but he would be in an upright position, and would be exposed to friendly impaling steel bars of death.

It could also be a garbage scooter of sorts.
2002-03-26 06:55:33 AM  
he wont ever be the same again
2002-03-26 07:31:00 AM  
How fast does one normally drive while staring into the sun?
2002-03-26 07:32:31 AM  
He'll feel that in the morning!
2002-03-26 08:03:46 AM  
YEOWWWWWWWWWW! His leg will never be right again!
2002-03-26 08:18:42 AM  
That article hurt just reading it. Yowie. Somebody get me a bandaid. This has got to be near Darwin award.
2002-03-26 09:06:58 AM  
Thats gonna leave a mark.

Army of fun - Nah, mine looks like Diet Coke.

He'll be setting off airport metal detectors for years to come.

"Um sir? Do you have any,"
2002-03-26 10:39:10 AM  
Should have called in sick that day.
2002-03-26 10:59:28 AM  
I feel like I need a hug after reading that.
2002-03-26 11:58:08 AM  
Why was GARGABE truck emphasized as so?
2002-03-26 12:30:57 PM  
Time to go for a 'Mike's Hard Lemonade'.
