I think my dumbest injury of all time was when a friend and I were pulling cornstalks out of the ground for some reason and my hands slid as I pulled up on one and it cut the absolute sh*t out of my hands and I started pouring blood from both hands.
I immediately rode my bike home and burst through the front door to hysterically tell my mom what had happened. I was also pretty young so I was convinced that I was dying.
It turned out I didn’t even need stitches, but man that hurt…
Let’s check out some other stories about how people injured themselves in dumb ways.
1. Still hurts…
Gotta be careful!
What's the stupidest injury you've ever occurred?
I'll go first: I popped my jaw last week by brushing my teeth too vigorously. It still hurts ?

2. Adult hip hop is dangerous.
This one hurts.
I took an adult hip hop dance class when I was 28. At the end of the class everyone had to solo free style. In normal, do too much Nicole fashion, I dropped into the splits to show every “I still had it.” Hadnt done the splits since I was a CHILD. Tore my hamstring.

3. Got the all-clear!
Lucky they were there…
Nearly blew out my knee dancing into a wedding reception. Athletic trainers & a surgeon gave me the all-clear, on the scene. pic.twitter.com/GENJsLLxJz

6. I’m being attacked!
Fell asleep on my arm. Woke up in the dark & couldn’t feel it at all. I was trying hard to move it & just as I was about to give up, my hand fell from the sky & whacked me in the face!
You don’t know fear until you think you are being attacked w/only 1 arm to defend yourself.

7. Gotta be careful with those things.
I injured myself by stepping on a Lego in kids bedroom while putting clothes away, lost my balance, grabbed the clothes drawer pulled it out as I fell over backwards and it all fell on top of me. All true. Can’t make it up

Sorry about the arm, though.
