WU reader Holly gave us a heads-up about her son's recent pencil-through-the-foot incident. I guess she knows we couldn't resist something that gruesome. There are even more impaled-foot pics on her blog. She writes:

I sat there holding his foot in my hand, and noticed there was NO BLOOD... not even a drop coming out of either of the holes...and I wasn't prepared to open up an artery on the playroom floor. So I realized I would just have to calm him (and myself) down and wait for the EMTs to arrive. I could hear my hubby on the phone downstairs with 911 yelling up to me "Don't pull it out! Don't pull it out!" I said, "Okay...I'm not going to... get the camera".

Happily the pencil was safely removed, and it seems there's no permanent damage

Most puncture wounds DON'T bleed when the object is still in place...after all, the hole is being blocked by the object.

This puts the time I stepped on a d4, barefoot, to shame.
