Freak gardening accident? Probably best if they left that one unsolved.

'Freak gardening accident' is a strange thing to call losing toes to a lawn mower. I imagine that's not especially uncommon, as accidents go.

I'm going to go with c) Didactly

Loosing three is a little harsh for cheating at a game show.

Wouldn't it just have been easier to get the smarter guy on the gameshow rather than this elaborate plan of feeding the dumber guy answers?

I sort of figured the 'smarter' guy was just looking the answers up through a smartphone.

MrCheeks, a man who has a lot of ivory is less likely to hurt Stampy than a man whose ivory supplies are low!

But did he REALLY cut off his toes? Did they check to make sure they weren't his partner's toes?
 
2010-09-17 11:22:54 PM  
Bet they find his toes in a cup of Wendy's chili soon.

Rule #1 of using a lawnmower: when in doubt, LET GO. The blade stops pretty quickly unless it's really, really, really old or you duct-taped that handle down.

/electric lawnmower FTW
//stops instantly when you let go (or run over the cord)

Well the con happened in 2001 and as amazing as this sounds, I doubt there was a smartphone that could have helped out back then.

I bet you an internet that he held onto the handle automatically trying not to fall.

They're a special kind of rubber boots with extra space in front of the shin, to place the ewe's hind legs so she can't run away.

people in Bama have push-mowers? i've seen people 'round those parts w/ ride-ons who don't even have cars

I'll never understand that meme. Especially with the fail tag associated.

Yes, classic. You did not disappoint.

Check out this bit of gold from tfa comments:

One rotten apple slipped up in using a signalling cough
Slipping on another rotten apple took three of his toes off!
In the first incident he thought the fiddle would fit the bill
In the second, an accident left him without a boot to fill.

Oh, I think they all work. If it's got a big whirling blade and an easily defeated safety, it will fill the emergency room.

"had to ask a friend to phone 999 for an ambulance"

Well that's why they couldn't get them back on, everyone knows the number is 0118 999 881 999, 119 725 3.

Snopes

Hah! I'm so relieved that moon - elephant Millionaire screenshot is a fake.

I always feel so bad for that lady in the picture, the pic almost makes me cry when I see it.

Now through the power of Snopes I don't have to.
