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
00dozo said…
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 - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
