Drink 'Till It Hurts

In an episode that can best be described as "cheeky" two buddies from Melbourne Australia are having a tough time sitting down this week.

I think these two are wanna-be Darwin Society members.  Seems the two got to slugging back a few silly pops last week and at a certain point stupidity overtook reason.

Geez, when my brothers and I get together, somewhat infrequently, we just tell jokes when we drink.  And the more we drink, the funnier the jokes get.  Or so it seems.  Not that we can remember them the next day, mind you.

But these two from down under will remember their antics with their, ahem, down unders for some time to come.

Seems these two beer besotted blokes thought it might be interesting to see what would happen if they shot each other in the buttocks with a BB gun.  They wanted to know if it would hurt.

Well they proved their theory and apart from a bit of pain each thought they were fine.  Yeah, beer can have that affect on you.  Remind me not to take an air rifle with me next time I go out for a drink.

Turns out that two days after their little experiment both men were admitted to the hospital where they were prepped for surgery to remove pellets from their bum cheeks and legs.

O course, now that the story has hit the international news wires imagine how these two feel.  Talk about making a complete ass of yourself!

At least Vlad only shot out the garage window with his homemade firecracker gun when he was ten! Of course, now that he's in college...

Boom-Boom: Oh, no. Has Vlad graduated to the militia?! Wait a minute. He was drinking when he was 10???!!!

The guy sitting on the right, in the picture, looks like a caricature of Robert Mitchum, and Robert Mitchum would have no doubt shot friends in the butt with an air rifle when drinking. He's just the type.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Funny thing about that picture. When I looked for pis of bums all I got was porn sites. So that's why I went the "drinking buddies" route. As for Mitchum, yeah, he was quite the character both on and off the screen. Did you know he had a misc career, too? My favourite Mitchum tune is the Ballad of Thunder Road which he wrote and sang for the film Thunder Road.

Something tells me that we're missing crucial details from that story. It sounds like one of those "really, doc, I just sat down on a candle while backing up naked..." Maybe they were dueling, maybe they were into a little S & M; I'm just saying it sounds half-assed.

"They wanted to know if it would hurt."


They thought there was a POSSIBILITY it would NOT hurt?

I knew there was a reason why I don't imbibe!

hee hee

KABLOOEY: Ah, ha,ha,ha. Yeah I guess the story isn't all it's cracked up to be.
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Hell, it took them 2 days to realize maybe they should go to the hospital. These guys aren't the sharpest knives in the cutlery drawer, obviously.
Linda said…
Yeah, these two are definitely a few bricks shy of a full load.
nonamedufus said…
Linda: Nope, the elevator's not going to the top floor here. Thanks for the Stumble.
Me and my bro were just having fun. At least it was better than last year, when we decided to dip our male member unit thingys in hydrocholoric acid to see if it would hurt.

It did.

Last time for that prank.

Mike: You know your comment makes me think of the line "This is Darryl and this is my other brother Darryl" for some reason.
Jen said…
I've done some stupid things when drinking but never have I asked someone to shoot me in the bum because I didn't think it would hurt. Of course, I'm not Australian.
I prefer smoking but that's just me. or maybe not just me =D

I'll bet they'll be the butt of many jokes to come.
nonamedufus said…
Jen: Oh yeah? What stupid things have you done?
nonamedufus said…
I Like Kung Fu Movies: These guys were smoking. Just at the other end.
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Very good! I guess they'll go down in posterior-ity.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
