This is a question Real-life slapstick

Fact: When someone walks into a lamp-post it makes a very satisfying and hugely hilarious "Ding!" noise. However, it is not quite so funny when the post is in the middle of town and you are the victim. Tell us about hilarious prat-falls.

Thanks to Bob Todd for the suggestion

Kitten slippage
I've recently aquired me 1st family pet, which is an 8 week old kitten called Pepper. I did post a picture of him the other week but I'm not going to do that again as the fucker is too sickeningly cute to stomach.

The other morning I was up early on a non-work day so what with nothing better to do I stuck the Xbox on. Playing something like Modern Warfare 2 I was joined by the company of Pepper who started attacking my feet (little bastard, fecking hurts too). I shake him off and focus on the game, and Pepper goes for an explore.

He climbs up on a hi-fi unit and walks across the top of it until he reaches the telly. The TV itself is on it's own cabinet, and as it's an old 32"er (not even widescreen, let alone flatscreen) it's taking up most of the walking room for Pepper. So Pepper is sheepishly swiping at the edge of the TV cabinet which is about 2 inches off the edge of the hi-fi cabinet.

Pepper stretches towards the TV....then slips. His head slides down behind the gap and his body dangles and flaps about in front of the TV. Pepper freaks, "MEEEEEEEEEEEEEOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOWOWOWOWWWWWWWWWWWWEMEEE", slashing and swinging everywhere, all I could see was a white fluff tantrum freaking out while trying to get his head out of this gap.

I had to do it. I stood up quickly and stuck my hand under him to pick him up and slot his head safely out above the cabinet, but it was too late. By the time I'd freed him he'd sliced 10 shades of red out of my hand. Hurt like a fecker too. Stupid dopey violent ball of fluff.

He doesn't explore near the TV anymore after that.

PS okay, get ready to say awwwww;

Billy our newest cat jumped off the fridge onto the kitchen/diner tv which is mounted on a wall bracket at around 2.30 a.m.

The noise of the tv and freeview box landing on the floor was impressive!! The little bugger has not done it again though!!!

As we say....
... when introducing our vicious/cuddly bi-polar bastards, "they have 5 corners, and they're all sharp"
