At least he didn't cut off his thumb. This time.

Tonight Ted was helping me make eggplant lasagna.  And, by helping I mean he took over the slicing of the eggplant on our brand spanking new "possibly the safest" mandolin on the planet because he couldn't stand to let me use it first.

Tiller Ted, immediately dispensed with the safety guard and started slicing away.  Go big, or go home...right?  He also sliced off a largerish part of the side of his right thumb.  Yes, it is as gross to watch as you can imagine.  He wanted me to elaborate this blog post with pics.  Y'all can thank me later.

Just like I am thankful that there are no pictures about the time he was tearing around a kitchen getting rolled and actually cut off his thumb by grabbing a piece of sheet metal.  You heard that right.  I'll let him give you the gory details.  I'm still totally grossed out by the 1/4 inch of thumb slice I saw tonight.


  1. You would NEVER make it in my line of work.......LOL I hope farmer ted heals Quick!

  2. So... how many tablespoons of blood DOES it take to properly season an eggplant lasagne?


  3. Ted Flavored Tomato Sauce...

  4. Once again... This fuckin' sucks. March is just not turning out to be my Month. Yeah... I was gonna have Chele post a pic but we decided against it because to be quite honest... It's pretty bad; Thank God I did all of the tilling yesterday or else... I dunno WHEN it would be done after this latest fiasco. If it's not one thing it's another, Man...

    You read it right. I actually DID cut off my thumb at work one time by grabbing a piece of raw sheet metal. I was out of work for a couple of months... Going to physical rehab almost daily trying to get myself up and running again.... So I finally was able to return to work and faster than you could say "What the fuck?!" I got the sack... So I sued. That's pretty much how the story ended... In a nut shell.

    Work should be fun. I'll keep you posted.

  5. OMG, that's awful! Ted, are you trying to get out of work? Hah! Alys Anne

  6. Ouch! I'm glad you didn't post pics too. I hope it heals quick for you! Anna
