Major injury news this weekend, fellow Birubegjans, Your beloved El Presidente suffered through a traumatic injury.  No, it wasn’t another assassination attempt.  The last one nearly succeeded by the way, you clever assassin, substituting a Hershey bar with a whole lot of Ex-Lax. Oh, in other news, this year’s El Presidente Pants Donation is going to have to be rescheduled due to unforeseen complications.

No, this injury was to my left thumb.  Having tried to empty the dishwasher, I accidentally grabbed the twirly blade thingy part of our blender that was being washed.  While the injury was later deemed as non-life threatening, it did due some damage to his steering hand on his Xbox controller.  How bad?  This lack of functionality sadly made him lose his video game life on Zoo Tycoon, which was tough to do considering it is a game in which you literally cannot die.

Your cards and letters have been most appreciated, along with the establishing of the Left Hand Foundation, which was later closed after some unpleasantness with the Randy Rightey’s of Rochester, an organization dedicated to the elimination of all things Lefty.

So, my fellow Birubegjans, what was the most embarrassing injury you’ve ever experienced?

Greetings blog wanderers and seekers of truth, or whatever truth appears to be from the mind of a warped individual. You have reached the inner sanctum of some guy named Alan. Having graduated college sometime shortly after the Earth cooled, he finds himself in his late 30's and working out in the real world. His humor is dry and his outlook not so serious and somehow has picked up the nasty habit of writing about himself in the third person. He is married with child and loves his family, sports and, of course, his beloved video games...likelihood of his growing up? Not good. Are you an established site or magazine looking for a writer? Drop me a line if you are interested.
