Best Job Ever? Best Husband Ever?
I heard a couple stories that made me cringe. You know that cringe when you see a guy get hit right in the ‘nads?
First, on Jimmy Kimmel last night, he talked about a Colombian man who castrated himself. He did this because he was afraid he’d cheat on his wife. Now, I’m not sure if your wife would be happy or sad by this. I mean, I’m guessing Tiger Woods wife would be happy by that act, but…I’m guessing there’s some negative that comes from it. Aside from the infection this dude got doing it.
Now, don’t try this at home, kids. This guy is a farmer and he’s done it to many of his animals. Which makes me think Gary Larson is working on a cartoon right now, that shows farm animals laughing and pointing.
It’s strange, because in the movie Little Children a child molester castrates himself. And, I’m all for those types of people doing that.
In the film you feel bad, because his mother just died and he really is someone that needs mental help and is being harassed by a crazy cop.
Anyway…the other cringe worthy story involved a guy that won a contest for “the best job ever.” That meant he got to go to a tropical island paradise near Austrialia’s Great Barrier Reef and blog about it to boost tourism.
The 6-month assignment paid a cool $120,000.
Well, a box jellyfish the size of pea, stung him. Apparently, they are among the most venomous animals on the planet.
He got chest pains, muscle cramps, a burning sensation all over his body, and was taken to a hospital.
In 2002, two tourists died from these little guys stinging them. They’re virtually impossible to see in the sea.
Now, since his job is to blog to help tourism – does he lose his job because of this?
