I could definitely see a CFL doing that. But only if it was filled with large knives and machetes.Dariex 11/29/2012
Let me guess:
Guy steps on light-bulb. Light-bulb atacks him with a sword.

But there's no way a CFL could have done that: http://mediamatters.org/blog/2...backwardsd 11/29/2012
The better story would be to tell how he stepped on a cfl bulb - arent they usually on the ceiling?drunkfetus 11/30/2012
Isn't this an old urban legend? (well, not real old. just... internet old)AnguisetteAntha 11/30/2012
I could see stronger bulbs doing that, especially the ones with condensed gas in them. I highly doubt a CFL could do that unless you tried to get one tiny shards of glass out of your foot with a chainsaw.thatoneguy249 11/30/2012
The best part about this is all the comments saying essentially, "No, this is real, I saw a picture on the internet of a horrible wound and the text on the picture said it was caused by stepping on a CFL, so it's not a hoax".
It's meta-dumb.CommieBobDole 11/30/2012
Do Christians in the US have a plan to burn down the rainforest, hang all the gays, send all the black people to Africa, and force rape victims to marry the men who rape them?beeteeoh 11/30/2012
This has little to do with the cut and more to do with the mercury that is in the bulb. The mercury is killing his flesh.the22nitschke 11/30/2012
some of you guys have never broken a florescent bulb before have you... This could have been the after math of an initial cut then an infection afterwards from the crap in the bulb.josh95mx 11/30/2012
