BELGRADE (Reuters) – A Serbian union official who chopped off his finger and ate it in a protest over wages that in some cases have not been paid in years, said Monday he did it to show how desperate he and other workers were.

Well, I get it.  I understand you’re underpaid, and as a result you can’t afford enough food so this is your over the top protest to prove how hungry you are.

But when you work manual labor in a textile factory, that’s probably not the best idea.

Bulatovic said his comrades will not back down from their demands, but they will postpone planned self-mutilations at least until talks with government officials in Belgrade expected Tuesday.

This should read. “will postpone planned self-mutilations at least until they come up with a better way to protest wanting a raise.”

Speaking of missing fingers, one of the new NYC Anti-Smoking Ads really pisses me off, and not the one about the little boy crying.  F that kid.  This one:

FSN Lose Fingers

What the fuck is this?  This has got to be the most misleading thing ever.

Smoking = missing appendages? For Sure NOT.

Might as well put up an ad about a woman who got hit by a bus while lighting a cigarette and saying that smoking causes collisions between humans and buses.

Or this dick a few weeks back:

FSN Smoke at a gas station

Surgeon General’s Warning: Smoking May Cause Your Kia To Explode.

FSN.

So listen up kids.  There have been like 5 cases in the history of smoking of people losing their fingers.  Seriously, FSN obtained an exclusive interview with THE Surgeon General himself:

FSN – Mr. General, in the histo…

Surgeon General – Please, call me Surgeon.

FSN – OK Surgeon.  In the history of smoking how many people have ever lost their fingers as a result?

Surgeon General: Like, five.

BAM.  Straight from the proverbial Horse’s Mouth

So in conclusion, don’t be afraid of losing your fingers from smoking.
