Man may lose arm after waving from moving car

A WESTERN Australian man may lose his arm after it was hit by a ute as he waved at two girls from a car window.

THE 20-year-old man was a passenger in a vehicle that drove past two girls at a carwash in Bunbury, south of Perth, on Saturday night, police said.

“He put his arm out the window and waved at the girls as the Nissan made a righthand turn at the intersection, and was struck by a Toyota Hi-Lux twin-cab vehicle,” police said.

“His left arm was partially severed and doctors believe the limb may need to be amputated.”

    Well, we wanted to excise & tow North Carolina over here to WA in order to improve our gene pool and raise our average Common Sense level. Tennessee, because y’all are uncommonly talented moonshiners and we could use some good local whiskey here 😉

    Spot, you just won the prize for giving me the best belly laugh of the day! Please write to PACO Enterprises to learn what your prize will be. I’m sure it’s something great.

    I love that you added all the other stories relating the dangers we all meet everyday, but which our moms taught us to avoid. It is exactly what I thought as I read the story.

    Thank you, Saltydog, glad to be of service — and re. the Mom thing, must be that great minds think alike, even in different hemispheres! 😉

    Now, spot is entirely too modest to own up, but I can attest that I, myself, personally, have met all of those people who, I have every reason to believe, are the subjects of spot’s headlines (none of whom are my own personal progeny as I’m sure no one here would suspect for one NY minute). Trooly, rooly, cross-my-heart honest!
