C&T: Holy Shit!  I can barely believe there are “Do’s and Don’ts” for accidental amputation.  I broke my leg as kid while ice skating, and when I looked down, my foot was pointing in the wrong direction.  It’s hilarious now,  but I caused myself more injury by grabbing my foot in a panic and twisting it back into the “right” position.  Big mistake and lesson learned.   I dunno about you, but the next time I’m in a knife fight and an eyeball gets dislodged, I’ll try to refrain from popping it back in.

People often don’t know what to do with a body part that’s become derailed, doctors say:

DO:

  • Keep detached fingers and toes cold but don’t put directly in ice, experts say
  • With knocked-out tooth, keep the ligament trailing off the end of the tooth moist

DON’T:

  • If eyeball becomes dislodged, don’t try to put it back, doctor warns

C&T: Sounds like a “wet” clean-up to me …

Tabloid Prodigy brings us this ridiculous mugshot from the world’s biggest hat enthusiast, who will hopefully learn a valuable lesson in parenting, if not sunscreen application, from this embarrassing experience.

LONDON — A minuscule cow with a taste for contemporary music has been named the world’s smallest by the Guinness World Records book. Guinness says the sheep-sized bovine from the West Yorkshire region of northern England measures roughly 33 inches from hind to foot.

The 11-year-old cow is named Swallow and her owner, Caroline Ryder, said she would spend Thursday either grazing with her herd or listening to BBC radio in her cowshed.

Awwwww...ain't he cute?

From Washington to Florida this election season, candidates risk being drowned out by a flood of advertising from a robust new network of little-known conservative political outfits. “Shadow Republican groups formed by longtime party officials and party operatives are raising and spending hundreds of millions of dollars in this election,” says Fred Wertheimer of Democracy 21, a nonpartisan campaign-finance-reform group, “most of which is going to come in the form of secret undisclosed contributions.”
