This is a question Ouch!

A friend was once given a biopsy by a sleep-deprived junior doctor.
They needed a sample of his colon, so inserted the long bendy jaws-on-the-end thingy, located the suspect area and... he shot through the ceiling. Doctor had forgotten to administer any anaesthetic.

What was your ouchiest moment?

Still recovering from it actually...
The other week I was preparing to light a cigar, as I usually do on an evening.

I struck the match, and the end broke off... The burny end. It managed to lodge itself between two of my toes. By this point the pink stuff (not sure what it's called) was still burning.

I quickly learned, that stuff burns incredibly hot and between the toes is a very sensitive place to burn.
What followed was frantic swearing coupled with a very unusual dance.

Was left with 2nd degree burns in the strangest place I've ever injured and very obvious limp.
The skin is starting to grow back now.

The pink stuff?
That's called flesh, dear.

that hurts
I watched my Dad drop a piece of burning coal at a BBQ which then got wedged between his toes and a sandal strap. Despite doing the dance you mention, it stayed put for quite some time as he jumped around like a loony. He didnt find it as funny as we did,...

potassium chlorate and glass.

I once managed to drop a burning match head into the gap between the laces on my ice skates (don't ask). Funny dance not so easy to pull off when you're not on terra firma
