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

Picture the scene, if you will; an excited BTBB in year 10 is on a Geography field trip to France, along with BTBB's excited friends.
After a very long coach journey, they pile out at a hostel high in the French Alps.
This hostel, unfortunately, is not exactly The Ritz, but BTBB doesn 't mind, as he's sharing with two of his best friends. The intrepid trio trudge up the stairs to the top floor, and find their room- it's small, and cramped, and has a tiny en suite bathroom, but it's all theirs, and they rejoice.
BTBB's friend goes first to the bathroom, and reports back that there's no window, and the light switch is on the outside (bear this is mind)
So, BTBB goes to wash his face- it's surprisingly hot, and he's all sweaty. He runs the tap, goes to wash his face, and friend 1 turns off the light. There's a moment where time seems to stop, and then there's a SPOINGAAAHH as BTBB manages to headbutt the tap. He hears friends laughing, so he goes to admonish them- they apologise, and he heads back to wash his face.
Again, he runs the water, again, he lowers his head, again the light goes off. This time, not only is there a SPOINGAAAHH, there's a FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK as, it turns out, BTBB has managed to headbutt the tap in the exact same spot as last time, just harder, and has now broken his nose so blood floods everywhere.

Does this count as slapstick?
