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