Practagedy

The MiniSnab volunteered to be a disaster victim for a drill at a local hospital. It was a massive earthquake and she was "injured" in the event. They let her wear her "wound" home. Here are the pics:



Maybe I should have called this "Ich bin ein Berliner":



It sounds like she had fun and it was time that our Homeland Security money went to something that teenagers found fun.

I can't decide if I want to say kool or eewww (so, naturally, I'll say, kewl).

Pandabonium said...

Wow, great F/X. How was that done? Next Halloween....

Don Snabulus said...

Freida,

I'm on the Kewl side too.

FYI: I got warned by my web browser (Google Chrome) that your blog template contains malicious code from a site called stlyrics.com.

If you have any widgets running with that site in the code, you should remove them.

PB,

I will bet there is a well-paid government contractor that creates this stuff. It would make a nice Halloween wound.

Freida of the Bees said...

Uhh- thank you. I was running a scroll bar of frank zappa lyrics in a sidebar widget by them for zappadan. I removed it. I had altered it to adjust the sizing, but that likely has nothing to do with it. Will you let me know if the warning is gone? If you leave it here, I'll get the message in my gmail follow up to this post's comment.

Wow- I'm a pain in the ass new blog friend, huh?

Thanks.

Freida,

It is fixed! Google Chrome is not complaining anymore and declares your site safe now. Thanks.

This isn't your fault anyway. We need a vetting process for our blog widgets to keep the creeps out of it. We can't be expected to become malware experts.

Funny how Microsoft and Apple can get raked over the coals for security problems but malicious websites are getting worse and worse with too little being done by Adobe Flash and the Browser Javascript engine writers to ensure the safety of user systems.

Freida of the Bees said...

Thank you. You're Snabulous, indeed.

I'm trying to figure out what that wound is. It looks like a puncture, but something that large would have hit and shattered the bone. It could be a laceration, but the skin around the wound looks wrong.

Or it's an outbreak of sphincterisis.

Either way, save it for hallow'een!

(obligatory selfish story: I once had to play an unconscious crewman in a 'helicopter crash'. It was a bit distressing that I had to 'wake up' to show the fire crew how to undo my seatbelt/shoulder harness.)

Don Snabulus said...

Ark,

I was thinking the same thing. I can see the skin pushed back from one direction, but not a 360 deg caldera like that one. That's why I was thinking jelly donut (ein Berliner).

So, did you tell the crew to keep from injuring you or because you were tired of playing unconscious or what? Enquiring minds want to know.

The Moody Minstrel said...

Ohhhhh...I always get fake dizziness at the sight of fake blood!

Is that a wound or evidence of a Lovecraftian horror?

"That thing...it just sat there in the corner! It feeds in the dark! Feeds on life! It brushed me with its vile, acid-dripping tentacle as I stood there paralyzed, too numb with fear to move!

IƤ! Shub-Niggurath! The Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young™!"

The Colorman said...

What color?

Oh, wait. You already said black. My bad.

Dean Wormer said...

Oooohhh. I just had dinner. Gross.

I hope she had that looked at.

:-)

Swinebread said...

wow, that looks pretty bad... too bad it wasn't halloween

Pandabonium said...

That reminds me of the Star Trek episode, "The Man Trap", which featured a salt-sucking vampire.

snab: the firefighter was starting to panic a little bit and I was afraid he was going to cut the harness.

The best part of the exercise, though, was the pilot who was told to be in shock from the crash. In the confusion, he wandered away from the aircraft and nobody stopped him. He wandered across the ramp, across two runways, hopped a fence and walked the long way back to the base.

Don Snabulus said...

MM,

Is that an artificial Goat in the Woods?

DW & SB,

Ayiee!

PB,

I liked that episode and, Yes, it does look a bit like that. I will get her some potato chips ;)

Ark,

Smart move on your part. Good job on shock guy...too bad he had to walk all the way back.

ElTigrez said...

That should teach mini Snab from walking through tropical jungles and gardens ... you can pick up something... especially in a building in the middle of a tropic jungle with an earthquake. Triple threat uhuh ;)~
