But not retards, because they don't have the mental ability of four year olds.

I should know, I'm retarded

The problem here is that her best friend is a stuffed bear.

A maneuver? What is she, a bloody tank commander?

If she were British I am sure it would be a "manoevuruer" or something.

Man, she looked more like she was farking that bear...

Seriously though, good for her, glad she knew what to do. Remember, Beavis almost let Butthead die because he couldn't remember what to do...

Well, if you're into that sort of thing, but I prefer this one (possibly NSFW new window).

Oh man, Photoshop is going to get all kinds of unfortunate on this one, isn't it?

I thought about writing "manoeuvre" but went with the spelling in the headline.

Ugh. Cuteness in children expires at age 7.

Came for the photoshopped pedo bear in that bear's place...leaving disappointed

Is this where I point out that many physicians discourage the use of the Heimlich for choking?

Actually, age 4.5.

Yes, Hilda! Hilda! Wake up, Hilda!"

"Oh, what is it, Dr. Heimlich?"

"Why are you calling me Dr. Heimlich? I'm you're husband, for fark's sake! Loosen up, don't be so bloody Prussian."

"Well, what is it, Günther?"

"I have invented a maneuver!"

"What are you, a bloody tank commander now?"

"No! My name is going to be famous in restaurants!"

I remember that the heimlich family sued first aid organizations for teaching that maneuver under that name; Due to that, I was taught it in a different name.

What I'm wondering is, can the family sue news organizations using that name in their articles?
 
2012-04-02 04:57:23 PM  
Looks like more of a gesture than a maneuver.

Never mind the kid story, did anyone else notice the linked article on the side, "Rape lie recanted after WA man spends 9 years in prison"?

Some girl got mad at her father and falsely accused him of raping her. He spent 9 years in the joint before she grew a conscience and told the truth. Now, the prosecutor says she won't prosecute the daughter for lying, because it might discourage other girls from reporting sexual assaults.

I think a blood vessel in my head just blew.

I was Heimlich'd by Dr. Heimlich himself.

I think it's where you point out that if the person is "gasping for breath", they don't have a fully occluded airway, and you're not supposed to use the Heimlich.

Thanks for killing the laughter I had going at the 'shopped pic.

Geez. It might discourage girls from reporting sexual assaults that didn't happen. We can't have that.

Came here to say this.

Good on the kid for keeping her head on straight, though. More than I probably would have done at that age.

/got a piece of hard candy lodged in my esophagus when I was about that old; didn't choke, but it sure hurt
