Everyone gets angry sometimes. Some people pout. Other people yell. Still others employ the old "walk-into-an-art-museum-and-destroy-the-offending-art-with-a-crowbar" strategy. The ways people deal with their anger are myriad, and they range from the constructive to the bizarre. Falling into the latter category is the star of today's moment of schadenfreude, who, after yelling some unintelligible gibberish, bafflingly takes off at full speed and pancakes himself right into a wall.

Really, the only thing missing from this video is somebody coming along after a couple of seconds to peel the guy off the wall with a large spatula. Rest assured though: In spite of the violent content here, Tom's injuries were limited to a large bump on his head that later became inhabited by birds, while Jerry came out unscathed.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
