Yeah, dumbass. Hilarious!

Mexican finger sandwiches for all !
2002-09-05 08:57:46 AM  
Aye I yie!
2002-09-05 09:25:43 AM  
Didn't Brittny Spears GIVE the finger to her fans in Mexico? Maybe this guy was trying to do the same thing but took it literally...
2002-09-05 09:41:07 AM  
Well he got better treatment from a helicopter than Stevie Ray Vaughn did.
2002-09-05 09:57:18 AM  
He was reaching for Vic Morrow's hat

I bet the missing finger shows up on Ebay.
2002-09-05 12:38:30 PM  
He was really taunting his fans. "Hey, you wanna piece of me?!" So he decided to give them a piece....

For the first time in his life he knows why people go to and from helicopters all bent over.
2002-09-05 02:18:54 PM  
Next time, pogo for the fans!!!!

Abarca, who had only recently joined the popular teen group Mageneto,

for a minute there I was thinking Menudo ... scary ...
2002-09-05 02:19:33 PM  
I'm not one to complain...Ok well maybe i am...
but didn't sombody link to this already in a previous thread a day or two ago?
2002-09-05 02:19:42 PM  
apparently this very situation is going to be a plot line on prime time tv this fall.
2002-09-05 02:19:42 PM  
Next time you're in Mexico, check your tequila closely. The worm might be a bit bigger than normal.
2002-09-05 02:19:51 PM  
some mexican teeny-bopper female fan found it, and she's satisfying her idol cravings right now

Now that's funny.
2002-09-05 02:24:07 PM  

3 fingers? That seems rather precise for something as big and violent as a helicopter.
2002-09-05 02:24:09 PM  
"Oh, the humanity!"

gee... i wonder just how far those fingers flew?

anyone check with Guiness?

They should line up all the boy bands under a helicopter and tell them to jump.

"Doctoro, vill I being able to play lo piano again?"


"Bueno, porque soy dunno how to play it now!"

/really bad joke translated most poorly, gracias muy mucho
2002-09-05 02:24:44 PM  
He should take a deep breath and count to seven. It'll be better then.
2002-09-05 02:25:56 PM  
i don't get it.. is he really tall or something?
2002-09-05 02:26:30 PM  
I bet his girlfriend is pretty damn grateful the middle finger was reattached.
2002-09-05 02:27:38 PM  

When he saw his fingers laying on the ground, did he keep calm or lose his head ?

I got nuthin.

Mexican singer loses fingers in helicopter blades while waving to fans

Anyone else see an almost Seuss-esque quality to the headline?
2002-09-05 02:27:58 PM  
Probably doesn't play any musical instrument anyway, so he'll still have a job.
2002-09-05 02:28:19 PM  

I just checked in my Guiness. Nothing there but good, strong beer milkshake.

Anyone heard of the legend of Senor Two Fingers?

Two Fingers Tequila is named for the hombre.
2002-09-05 02:33:15 PM  
That headline is lame. The subject has so many possibilites. How about "Mexican pop star says 'adios' to his fingers."
2002-09-05 02:33:38 PM  
Viyi con Dios my finger...
2002-09-05 02:34:13 PM  
Why was he waving to fans? Did the fans conspire with the helicopter blade to injure the kid? What kind of fans were they? I can imagine ceiling fans doing it, not bax fans or those little handheld ones you use to cool yourself off.

Oh, I know it was horrible, but it had to be done *sigh*

2002-09-05 02:38:19 PM  
He should sue the copter blade manufacturer for not warning him that spinning rotors can cause loss of limb.

TPerrin, I did NOT need to see that shiat. God...
2002-09-05 02:44:02 PM  
Ok I have just one question. Suppose you jam your fingers into a high RPM helicopter blade. What happens to the fingers that get chopped off? I would think they would launched in all directions at high velocity......I mean try this, take an ordinary frankfurter turn your ceiling fan on high and jam the unfortunate frankfurter into the fan and see what happens? I just really want to know how they found the fingers to sew them back on...there must be a story there......then again perhaps the downforce generated by the spinning blades kept them from flying off......who knows?
2002-09-05 02:47:13 PM  
Slofut Well there was a crowd, right? So maybe they jumped up and caught them like candy being thrown.
2002-09-05 02:48:48 PM  
I think this falls under the collective phrase of "common sense"...yes wave your hand all around below a rapidly turning airfoil...good. (Sarcastic) Sure it was an unfortunate accident, but you just don't DO that. I wonder how the heck they found his fingers? They must have been scattered all over the place.
2002-09-05 02:49:08 PM  
I submitted this a similar article a little too late.

"Mexican Pop Star waves goodbye to his fingers as they are chopped off by helicopter's blades."

Mexican fingers
helicopter blades are sharp
digits in the air

sorry, I just cant stop with the haiku

Hey! If he is fat too he can sue the City of Thunnder Bay - I hear the pickins are pretty good up there.

Waves to fans under chopper

2002-09-05 03:12:02 PM  
reminds me an old joke about the Polish helicopter with the ejector seat.

or the oneabout the guy who loses his index finger in a machining acident at work.
He calls his wife from the hospital "I'm OK, but I had a finger cut off"
Wife says "Oh my God, the whole finger?"
Guys says "No, the one next to it"

"Abarca, who had only recently joined the popular teen group Mageneto, was still hospitalized in Guatemala Wednesday."

Ewwww... being treated in a Guatemalan hospital. Isn't that one of the rings of hell?
2002-09-05 03:14:37 PM  
At least he didn't lose his head over this.
2002-09-05 03:32:56 PM  
Don't worry amigo.
Remember the "handless organist"?
It's all gonna be bueno.
2002-09-05 03:37:11 PM  
How about 2 in the snatcher and 1 in the crapper.

I got nuthin.
2002-09-05 03:42:58 PM  

Two in the snapper, one in the crapper.
2002-09-05 03:46:26 PM  
At least he didn't jump for joy.
2002-09-05 04:00:25 PM  
He must have been doing "the shocker" for those 3 fingers to get chopped off. How in the world do you lose your pinky, index and middle and the ring escapes free.

Crazy kid.
2002-09-05 04:51:52 PM  
I guess the guy's lucky he wasn't the band's GUITARIST.
2002-09-05 05:24:58 PM  
Mr bastard-
Please tell me where I can get a shocker shirt!
2002-09-05 05:35:07 PM  
This guy can forget all about joining "Finger Bang".
2002-09-05 05:56:49 PM  
Magneto are, like 50 other "bands", a kind of N'SYNC wannabe buch of teenybobbers. There used to be another Magneto, but they called it quits. Now these kids (or their managers from Televisa, Mexico's largest media) just want to cash in on the name.
The ring finger wasn't attached because they never found it.
I love to hate this kind of boy bands, but somehow I can't feel happy about this.
Oh, well.
2002-09-05 06:11:59 PM  
TPerrin: What the hell...?!?!?!?!
2002-09-05 08:07:16 PM  
Didn't he ever watch M*A*S*H ? They would always duck by the helicopter.
2002-09-05 08:33:09 PM  
He deserves the Fickle Finger of Fate award

Am I giving my age away with that yawner?

That is good stuff there. How could I have missed that of all people? Anyways, here you go. THAT has got to be one of the best lines I have EVER seen on FARK !!!

How did he lose the little, index, and the middle finger but not the ring finger?
Drees that monkey!
