Loren: Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: It takes some serious bravery to try to muffle a suicide bomber's blast.  Much respect to the officer.

Actually, I'm not sure it really is that much bravery.  It's like falling on the grenade--if you're too close to save yourself you lose nothing by saving others.

Luckily you can just sit on such things with your giant asshole.

MrEricSir: We're using the Hero tag for actual heroes now? What's going on, Fark?

Don't know, weird. Hero usually means 'overly hyped obnoxious prick with too much money'.

Also, found a pic of one of his balls after the explosion.

Gyrfalcon: Did they find the guy's huge steel balls, or were those destroyed in the explosion also?

Nope, plenty of guts though.
