A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

I'd like to nominate Andy from Silverdale Bait and Tackle.
 
His crime? Refusing to let me put a recent TAS-athon on Phats' account (he reckoned the account was already overdrawn but I had a sneaking suspicion he didn't trust me. As if.)

Ah actually, I know of someone whose misdeeds make Grubby's pale by comparison. All will no doubt be revealed in the fullness of time.
 
Trust me, there will be no deed that can beat this one. But its not for me to say, I am the model of discretion.

OK OK OK.
 
You will all be familiar with a certain Doctor, indeed, an eminent surgeon who is known to frequent these forums, particularly during the summer when it is game fishing season.
 
As you know he is also known to purvey the finest gamefishing lures and provide services in the hook sharpening department. It is the latter which gives cause to this extreme act of muppetry that has inspired his nomination for the Bog Seat.
 
Our Doctor has one clear rule for hook sharpening. One at a time. Never sharpen the hooks of a twin hook set up while they are still rigged together.
 
Except on this occasion, excited by the potential of his outstanding new man cave, he neglects to follow his number one rule (next he'll be leaving baitfish to look for marlin).
 
The hook sharpening device is a common or garden variety bench grinder with a cloth buffing wheel on one side.
 
He is using the buffing wheel (Gawd me eyes water just thinking about this bit) when the second hook catches in the wheel and before you know it the other hook (a Hays 11/0 no less, nothing small here) rips into the base of his thumb. It only stops when it hits the bone of the thumb joint.
 
The barb is also embedded in his flesh and we all know what that means, do we not thrill seekers? Yes, it's cutting time.
 
Our hero considers heading to the local A&E but realises that:-
 
1: He will first have to get past his wife who will never forgive him for this act of silliness
2: He doesn't fancy sitting around in the hospital corridor among 7 year olds with the flu for the next 17 hours
 
He sees a solution. Not elegant, but a way out of his predicamnt.
 
His eyes light upon his trusty Stanley knife. He grasps it, looking somewhat askance at the blunt, pitted blade. Single handed, and still attached via two 11/0 Hays Hooks and a length of stainless wire to the grinder, he is unable to change the blade for a fresh one.
 
He performs surgery on his hand with the Stanley knife to extract the hook.
 
(I have never heard the good Doctor swear). On this occasion a few blue words were uttered and he admitted that it "****ing hurt."
 
Perhaps his daughter summed it up best by saying "you were incredibly stupid and also incredibly brave."
 
Hear hear to that.
 
Punctured rubber duck DO? Sorry mate, not even close to this one.
 
Will anyone ever beat this?

You know, I really think we should have another physical trophy for this award. Not having to explain the just performed muppetry  to the good wife is one thing, but having to explain the magnificent trophy on the wall of his man cave to her would make up for the first escape. Clap

Indeed I just happened to visit the day after that happened and it was amusing to hear Obald tell the story while blushing like a schoolgirl under the VERY stern gaze of his good lady.
Front up and salute the crew Obald. That is if the stitches have healed and the plaster is offBig%20smile 
Of course to compound the comody Obald is left handed so guess which hand had the hook buried in it

I never normally look at this thread - why would I?

The facts are embarrassingly true (but Bender missed the pulling of the hook out of the bone prior to cutting the skin Wink). Happened about three weeks ago now and although the skin wound is well healed the hand is still a bit sore. Never mind - worse things happen at sea (as we have recently seen).

It has proved to me that I can sharpen hooks that will penetrate bony objects - marlin bills, my own wrist, etc, etc.

Very impressive. Hard to pick a piece of the story that is the most impressive.

When the scriptwriters for House or Greys Anatomy see this it should be the basis for a great episode.

Emergency well survived and handled in the first instance David but I bet you're dreading the extended pain when you have to pay the Toilet Seat Piper.
