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?

Never touch a cat that's been rolling in bleach
Whilst settled in front of the TV one evening, I smelled bleach coming from somewhere in the living room. I found this rather odd so I decided to investigate. I eventually found it to be coming from my cat Stirfry. Thinking "Oh crap! He's got at the bleach and is covered in it" I rush to my beloved kitty's aid. Big mistake. Stirfry savaged my right hand, biting and clawing it into a huge bloody mess.

If you've ever been bitten or scratched by a cat, you'll know that it hurts. Having your hand savaged is excruciating. It was also very, very quick. One minute, my hand was fine. The next, it was red and throbbing with pain.

Ex-Mr Cupcake rushed into the room to see what was going on, as he had heard a high-pitched "AAAAHHH!" He found me clutching my bloodied hand in agony and a very unhappy kitty hissing in the corner. We (somehow) managed to get him to the vet to get checked over. I can't really remember how as I think I was in shock. After Stirfry was given the OK, I was then taken to casualty and it turned out that I required stitches and a shot.

The mystery of the bleach-covered kitty was easily solved, as Ex-Mr Cupcake revealed that he had put some cleaner down the plughole in the bathroom sink, but hadn't shut the door properly. Stirfry had managed to open the bathroom door and had climbed into the sink to have a kip (as he was prone to do) and in doing so had got the bleach on his kitty form.

Stirfry was fine. There was no permanent damage. He was back to his usual playful self a couple of days later, and to this day I still have several scars on my hand from the kitty savaging.

That is an excellent name for a cat but I don't think I'd want to eat it after it had been liberally coated in bleach.

Stirfry ...
so named because the day we brought him home he got into the pan drawer and curled up in the wok to sleep.
