So You Think You Had A Bad Day At Work?

Check out what happened to this poor guy:

A zoo worker had his forearm reattached Thursday after his colleagues recovered the severed limb from the mouth of a 440-pound Nile crocodile, an official said.

The crocodile severed Chang Po-yu's forearm on Wednesday at the Shaoshan Zoo in the southern city of Kaohsiung when the veterinarian tried to retrieve a tranquilizer dart from the reptile's hide, zoo officials said.

The Liberty Times newspaper said Chang failed to notice the crocodile was not fully anesthetized when he stuck his arm through an iron rail to medicate it.

Well, at least his arm was successfully reattached. But I'll bet the next time they need a volunteer to pull that dart out, he won't be...uh...raising his hand.

Hate it when that happens.

"Don't be taken in by his welcome grin,
He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin..."

That's one of the coolest pix EVAR on the internets!

I wouldn't wish that on anyone, but I can'tstop laughing. Does that make me a bad person?
