Hey, I seem to be first (though I don't give a rat's eyelid)

I have only one thing to say: EWWWWW.

'Nough said! ;-)

"Kamran Khoobehi"


OMAHA BIKER HONK
HONK REHAB AM I OK
HANK HARM BOOKIE
OH MA, KHAKI BONER

I don't know how successful this was, based on that picture!

Things I learned from this article:

1) When a dog bites your eyelid, do not pull back.

2) When a dog bites your eyelid off, be sure to tell the 911 operator that you're calling about a "missing eyelid," not a "dog bite" as this will affect response time.

3) It's not unknown for eyelids to be torn "most" of the way off, but rare for them to be torn off entirely.

4) Always trust a doctor who says things like, "you can move things around and put them back on and they'll work pretty well."

I've always wanted to say this (*grinning*): What is Easter without leeches sucking the blood from your face?

I had a dog make a snack outta my head when I was little...but he didn't lunge for the eye.

I didn't see any mention in the article about what was to become of the dog. Once they get a taste of eyelid, they're sure to go back to the 'buffet' for more.

Oh, hey, maybe the dog was on a low carb diet ...

That. Is. Disgusting. I wonder if she kept the dog?

Let's hope the dog didn't go the way of that grizzly, having to pay the ultimate price for human folly. Or something.

Garret,

You are WAY too funny!

I didn't realize it, but when I read these off-beat items, I also run a mental "Garret Analysis."

[me thinking] ". . . hmmm so what I learned from this story is"

Thanks for the laugh!

Deon: Tongue firmly in cheek on other thread. Any chance to quote Fred Gwynne, you know ...
