YET ANOTHER BENEFIT OF ALCOHOL

BERLIN - A Polish man living in Germany went about his business for about five years without noticing he had been shot in the head because he was drunk when it happened.

. . . he wasn't really one for going to the doctor," the spokesman said.

There's a problem with that? If you go to the doctor for every ache and pain and pretty soon they find something wrong with you.

♪ Shot thru the head
But who's to blame?
You give stupid
A bad name.

It's just a flesh wound!

I've never been THAT drunk. Just sayin'

yeah i spose you hold yer pinky out when you hoist yer glass too...

You mean blackouts are not normal ??

Sounds like just another night at most bars in Houston, just saying.

IIRC, something similar happened to a photographer on the East Coast (New York City?) a few years ago. He was in the hospital being examined for another illness and the docs found a .38 slug in his brain.

As best as the patient and the cops could figure out - or so I recall from the story I read - he'd apparently acquired the bullet while covering a labor protest about twenty-five years before. The victim thought he'd been hit in the head with a brick at the time; the emergency-room doc who treated him afterwards, not realizing there was much more to the story, gave him a tetanus shot, a couple of stitches and a Band-aid and sent him home...

Nah, mud, not a pinky waver..... but come to think of it, I did once fall asleep on the dining room table after a couple of martinis

Huh? Mr. Nike needs to be examined for brain bullets.
