Look Sharp

Let’s Spend The Knife Together

A Russian electrician slept off a night's drinking with a long knife stuck in his back and didn't notice until his wife spotted it in the kitchen the next day. He was rushed to hospital in the northern city of Vologda, but the 15-centimetre (six-inch) knife had not damaged any vital organs. His wife saw the handle of the knife sticking out as her husband bent down to get some breakfast from the fridge.

FOOTNOTE: Shoulder blade.

Boy, knives making the news lately. A young boy in Vancouver, WA had a butter knife thrown at him. It lodged between his scalp and his skull, and he could see it stuck there.

I'm pretty sure I've never been THAT drunk.
Ouch.

He's lucky his wife wasn't upset at him for coming home drunk and late, or she could have gotten even by literally twisting the knife ....

I assume there were some questions such as, what were you doing last night and who were you with? but then, I guess he didn't remember.
Freaky.

Just as well she didn't use it to butter the toast, else it would have killed him taking it out! What a strange story!

I never drink around people that want to stab me in the back :)

Suzi-k said...

hehe, he must have been WASTED!! And cut up that he couldn't remember which back-stabbing individual did it to him!:) Seems like regular visits to the pub might prove to be a great solution for anyone with permanent backache!

Reminds me of that video I saw ages ago of some woman walking around completely oblivious to the fact she had a knife in her head. I cant remember what show it was on but I would have been in high school when I saw it probably.

Oh I read about that, you would think he would of known something was wrong, aah the effects of overdosing on vodka. Thanks David for the visit and comment at my site also :-)

I'm surprised the alcohol poisoning didn't do for him first - sheesh, that must have been some bender!

Crystal Jigsaw said...

He doesn't sound like the sharpest knife in the block does he?!

Must have been painful eventually...
