Beware of Christmas Hazards

Here's a little Christmas cheer for all from the Australian Bureau of Statistics

*31 Australians have died since 1996 by watering their Christmas tree while the fairy lights were plugged in.

*19 Australians have died in the last 3 years by eating Christmas decorations they believed were chocolate.

*Hospitals reported 4 broken arms last year after cracker pulling incidents.

*101 Australians since 1997 have had to have broken parts of plastic toys pulled out of the soles of their feet.

*18 Australians had serious burns in 1998 trying on a new jumper with a lit cigarette in their mouth.

*A massive 543 Australians were admitted to casualty in the last two years after opening bottles of beer with their teeth or eye socket.

*5 Australians were injured last year in accidents involving out of control scalextric cars.

*3 Australians die each year testing if a 9V battery works on their tongue.

*142 Australians were injured in 1998 by not removing all the pins from new shirts.

*58 Australians are injured each year by using sharp knives instead of screwdrivers.

and finally:

*8 Australians cracked their skull in 1997 after falling asleep (passing out) while throwing up into the toilet.

Re: Beware of Christmas Hazards

I'm betting of all those incidents, 90% of them are directly related to being pissed.

Re: Beware of Christmas Hazards

How could they be pissed if they failed to open the bottle with their teeth or eye socket...

Re: Beware of Christmas Hazards

What about the number of people who have a "career/job change" directly attributed to work Xmas parties and the consumption of alcohol...

Re: Beware of Christmas Hazards

I've just found out another hazard, but not a Christmas one.

I visited the tea room at work to get myself a coffee this afternoon and I found this huge cup. I'd guess that it held 600 mL or close to. A perfect SlothSized™ cup. Anyway, in go 9 satchels of sugar and 3.5 heaped teaspoons of NesCafe Blend 43. I get back to my desk and my colleagues are amazed by the size of the cup. They are even more amazed that it took me less than 5 minutes to drink it all.

Then one of them dared me to get a second cup. And so I did...

I've since had to use the emenities twice and have probably expelled more than I drank, and I am now bouncing off the walls. And I still have to drive home. In the rain.

So children, if you ever get the urge to drink around 1.2 litres of coffee in quick succession, DON'T!


This handy tip has been brought to you by the Sothmeister, whilst heavily under the influence of caffiene.

Oh no, time to visit the amenities again...

Re: Beware of Christmas Hazards

Mmm interesting, are the amenities suitably stress re-enforced to handle mutliple visits in such rapid succession?
