Anybody else accidentally read that as Robert Pattinson?

ginger907 11/30/2012

I could definitely see a CFL doing that. But only if it was filled with large knives and machetes.

700 club perpetuating bullshit lies? Get outta here.

The way it has the deep cavernous split but not the blood and shiny-ness of a new cut makes me think it's some kind of long-term medical problem, like gout or diabetes.

Let me guess:

Guy steps on light-bulb. Light-bulb atacks him with a sword.

It could happen.

Mr0Mike0 11/29/2012

But there's no way a CFL could have done that: http://mediamatters.org/blog/2...

It could, a combination of the chemicals inside, and a (un)healthy dose of bacterial infection could result in a wound that large.

The better story would be to tell how he stepped on a cfl bulb - arent they usually on the ceiling?

drunkfetus 11/30/2012

Total bullshit. It wasn't a light bulb. Try snope'ing it next time.

Steorra 11/29/2012

thats one bad ass light bulb. I wouldnt fuck with it.

I lived in Virginia Beach where Pat lives and I swear that man has been showing signs of dementia for at least the last 5 years. Once or twice a year he says something that is just so looney it gets a lot of press and you just have to wonder about his mental functioning.

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.

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

The wound looks too clean..

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 isn't even slightly interesting.

[deleted] 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

That looks more like a stage 4 decubitus ulcer from a bed rail. I saw something like this in a video in nursing school. Looks horrible.

skieryne 11/30/2012

who's bright idea was it to step on a lightbulb?

ODBBigBabyJesus 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

That's so funny, I use jagged knifes and shit for light bulbs too!!!

Marcus_McTavish 11/30/2012

Ooof. That's gonna leave a mark.
