    An Expensive Price To Pay For A Cheap Laugh

    From Redditor u/J-Bradley1:

    To try to get a cheap laugh out of my ex, I threw a hammer as hard as I could at a tree.

    The hammer bounced off the tree, and I turned just in time for it to hit me in the small of my back.

    Miracle I'm not paralyzed.
