Going Out On A Limb For A Punch-line

| Related | April 29, 2014

(Two of my brothers are in a car accident. It leaves one with just a broken leg, but the other’s right forearm is crushed, forcing them to amputate it at the elbow. He’s been out of surgery for a few hours and we are all very anxious to see him. Finally, we are told that he is awake and we can go into his room for a few minutes. I’m a little nervous to see him in such a helpless state, because he’s normally a very upbeat and energetic person.)

Me: “Hey…”

Brother: “Hi, guys.”

Sister-In-Law: “How do you feel?”

Brother: “Not very good. They cut off my arm, so that sucks.”

Me: “Yeah. I’m sorry, dude.”

Brother: “But on the OTHER HAND…”

(He waves his left hand at us, grinning. Our sister-in-law starts crying and laughing at the same time and has to sit down. My brother has since made a full recovery, and never misses the chance to make an arm pun.)
