    There has probably already been a thread on this but I had to share this one with group. I am currently out of action having managed to give myself a nasty burn on the lip after an accident with a minced beef crispy pancake. Took a bite into it and the, extremely hot, filling oozed out of the side and down my lip. Ooh, painful.

    I gave myself a nasty burn on a cheese and onion pie. I'd laready had a bite and the filling oozed out (like it does) on my fingers. I couldn't believe how hot it was. Blistered like blazes.:shock:

    Not an injury to me but it was ridiculously funny to watch!! :D :D

    Went for a chinese meal with Ploughboy and a few others including Mike Howley (formerly of Rothwell and YBS to name but a few) and after a few bevvies he decided to start on the flaming sambuca's...only... he left one burning away on the table a tad too long and when he came to drink it the glass welded to his lip and he poured burning sambuca down his chin and shirt!! Ouch!! :-? Laugh? I nearly passed away cos I couldn't breath for laughing!!

    Don't know whether he managed it but he was depping with another very well known Chamionship band the following morning! :-(

    An ex conductor of mine couldn't make rehearsal one night due to him opening his microwave door and the contents of a Jacket potato exploding into his eye! :-o

    The band was in fits of laughter for 5 mins, however i'm sure he didn't find it too amusing.
    Thankfully he returned the next rehearsal...no permanent damage.

    Not ridiculous as such... but I trapped my hand inbetween 2 tables setting up for a band rehearsal earlier this year.... this was the result (see attached picture)... Needless to say, I was out of action for a week or so.... :lol:

    Last year 2 nights before borders entertaiment contest, was milking the cows, things werent going to well and was getting rather annoyed with the useless animals! They were kicking and making rather alot of mess, anyway lost the plot with 1 and went to punch it on the nose but instead got it on side of jaw!! Ended up with 2 fractured knuckles and a hand the size of a football! Went to band next night, couldnt manage to play third valve, but wasnt going to miss contest.

    Learned how to play all over again using left hand for 3rd & 4th valves and just managing 1 & 2 with sore hand, took alot of thinking and a few painkillers!! Think i shouldve got an extra prize for the pain!
    Moral of story, dont lose your temper or just punch something you know is soft, bet the ****** cow is still laughing at me.....!

    This has to be one of the funniest stories I have heard in the last 12 months. You have no shame!


    (I'm still laughing - sorry, hope your hand is back as good as the 'udder' one)

    I was really drowsy and walked into a closed door and nearly knockd myself out
    walked into about 4tables & ended up with 100's bruises on legs.
    dropped cream all over me, and knocked the vinegar over, the carpet stinks
    then on the night, i kept dropping ham n beef on the table as i was silver servingon the buffet, and nearly dropped the cake. and later butted the heating thing in the kitchen cause i bent forward :s

    Me coming through a door carrying a disco light, the guy I was working with came steaming through trapping my finger between the light and the metal door handle.
    My finger swelled up to the point where it looked like the finger joint that took the brunt of the force had dislocated.
    As the swelling dropped, and I didn't go for any professional opinion on the injury until a couple of days later where it was still fairly painful. There was a bit of disagreement between the nurse and doctor as to whether I had broke my finger or not!!

    It wouldn't have happened if we had seen each other through the very thin window that ran down the length of the door! :oops:

    I fell off a bus too (not banding related but ......I'll share my woes anyway!)

    I'd gone to France on a Skiing trip with school. The bus pulled up to the hotel, I took one step,slipped on black ice (the rumours going around school were that I'd broken my hip~I hadn't!) had an x-ray and three days of sitting in a cafe reading a book before I went near the snow. It turned out to be a very expensive book :rolleyes: !

    I once played with a broken hand... it was in my younger days, and I was told I couldn't pull out because it was quite clearly my own fault.... I had been slightly drunk, and got into an argument with a french exchange student outside a pub... unfortunately he was staying with me, so it was a good thing he left the next day because I had to spend the whole time pretending I hadn't hurt myself... shaking hands with everyone as they left was AGONY!!

    good thing I'm so much more responsible now...

    At a rehearsal last winter, on a very cold day, one of our cornet players showed up late and sat down without a chance to really warm up. He had come straight from work, and his cornet had been sitting outside in his car all day. He brought his horn up to play his first few notes of the evening, then put it down for a rest. Unfortunately, he took a chunk of skin off his lip which had frozen to his mouthpiece.

    Fortunately he was back in action the following week.

    I still have no feeling in one of my toes after severing a nerve in my foot on a wine glass. Got out of bed in the middle of the night to go to the loo and trod on the wretched thing. I wouldn't have minded quite so much but the wine glass only had orange juice in it and it was the only night for some time I'd gone to bed sober. (I was a student at the time). Wrapped foot in kitchen roll and staggered off to loo anyway. Woken at 07:00 by housemate discovering trail of blood through house....

    Rang casualty in the morning and was seen very quickly due to glass injury. I had to have an anaesthetic right into the wound which was then sewn up by a distinctly unsympathetic young doctor. In retrospect, I shouldn't have tried to bite his hand.
    Ah the joys of youth. Now I never do stupid things.
