The Great Cut

Last week my friend Reid fell  through glass and ripped his forearm open.  Wide open.
To make sure nobody missed out,  he took pictures and posted them on Facebook.
Here's a censored version I made for this blog:

(For  uncensored versions, click here,  or here, but be forewarned: they're nasty.)

Friends were quick to comment.   I'd say the remarks broke down as follows:


 " I just talked to my dad," Reid added.   "I told him it was a pretty bad cut. I tried to explain but ended up emailing him one of the meatier photos..."

The conversation continued like this:

DAD:  Holy shit Buddy, that is the worst cut I've ever seen! I mean really, shit! How the fuck.....?! ...hold one one second ... ... i gotta find something.

REID:  What, Dad?

DAD: Printer paper, stupid! This can only be done proper justice with glossy photo paper.

REID: What, you want to show it off?

DAD:  Hell yes!  I'm showing everyone! I mean, that's a great cut. I'm proud of you! You did it just like a [someone from our family] should..... with GUSTO!!!! Well let me know if you need anything. I am gonna print this and head out of here. Love you Buddy!

Now that's a Hallmark moment.

p.s. Thanks to Reid for giving permission to blog about this.

Wow. I saw the photo you commented on on FB, and it was scary. But this post is funny.

Hi Stray,
I wasn't aware that my comments meant that all of my Facebook friends could see it. And here I thought I was sparing you the details (at least if you weren't curious!)

I'll be asking myself why I had to look at the uncensored version for the rest of the week.

RHSteeleOH,
Do you think I should have given a harsher warning?
(I too suffer from Why on EARTH did I click that scary link syndrome.)
