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.

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."

Seriously?

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.
Nicko Gibson said…
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.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
