Rule one: If you are not a mutant, anthropomorphic turtle named after a figure of renaissance art, you should probably just not play with nunchucks. Rule two: If you are still bent on playing with nunchucks, make sure there is not a skateboard lying around while you do it. And if you fail to observe these two simple rules for avoiding hilarious personal injury, then do not be surprised, my friend, when you become an object of the rest of the world's schadenfreude.

Really, the only thing missing from this video is marbles, a roller skate, a rock-filled boxing glove and this guy's hair somehow getting lit on fire to make it more or less an outtake from Home Alone 17: The sequel number that matches Macaulay Culkin's Age. But don't give up on this video right after he trips and falls on the skateboard. Just wait for it.

Wait for it...

Normally, kicking your buddy in the balls while his balls are already injured would be pretty ruthless -- in this case, it's almost required.

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.
