Boy Injures Eye With Skewer
A 10-year-old boy injured his eye at the Maryland Renaissance Festival in Crownsville on Sunday when he accidentally stuck himself with a skewer, Anne Arundel County fire officials said.
Lt. Frank Fennell, a county fire spokesman, said the boy, who was eating "steak on a stake," pulled the wooden skewer out of his mouth and stuck the skewer into his eye." - Associated Press
When I first read this blurb I thought, "Wow. That is one impressively dumb kid." But then I realized, if my parents dragged me to the Maryland Ren Fest and I had to spend an entire day around nerd cleavage pouring out of corsets, and hundreds of fifth-level dragon masters/tech support guys in tights and codpieces, I would probably jab my eyes out with a skewer as well.
Well played my Lord, well played.
