This is a question Body Horror

Mictoboy writes, "I once picked a spot on my cheek only for a half-inch long ingrown hair to coil out covered in pus."

How has your own body made you recoil in disgust?

At work one day I forgot to turn my drill off at the wall before turning the chuck key. It was stiff so I gripped it firmly, and when I accidentally touched the trigger the chuck key spun round, taking my middle finger with it.
To my horror, the finger developed a couple of extra joints and now resembled a strand of spaghetti wrapped round a fork.

I screamed swear-words in such a high pitch that my mate in the next room thought she heard me sneezing and shouted 'Bless you!'

Spaghetti-finger. Brr.

Done something similar with gloves on a belt-sander
my ring finger looked funny with the fingerprint side up.

I might have used the term...
... "hosepipe stuffed with uncooked spaghetti" to describe limbs once or twice before, in the context of rotating machinery.

Since getting heavily involved in the H&S side of things at work, I've taught myself not to loosen the chuck by gripping the outer part and putting the drill in low speed reverse. Now I just rummage around for wherever the last person to use it has hidden the key, like any sensible person.

Makes my (probably) broken finger sound a bit feeble!

I'm a bit H&S mad myself, which is why that accident was particularly silly. Talking, y'see, not concentrating.

Yes, thank you for asking!
Although this afternoon I wrenched it again doing the same thing (but unplugged this time) and I reckon I've set it back at least a month. Silly sausage.
