Why Men Don't Give Birth

Warning! Bad language in the video!

Most people we know have seen this video. It made quite an impression. My husband Ron is the one in the orange hat. He takes fly fishing trips a few times a year with his friends. On one of the trips he ended up with a fly hook in his hand. One of his dear friends was kind enough to video while the others yanked it out.

On a side note... I was involved in a car accident around the same time this video was posted on youtube. I had a concussion with memory loss and a broken finger. I spent the night in the hospital. Not to sound wimpy but it was pretty traumatic. Anyway, on several occasions after seeing friends or family the first thing they would say upon seeing us, with great concern, was, "Ron, how is your hand???!!!!" Not that I was looking for sympathy but PLEASE!!! This really is a great movie though. It can make your skin crawl and laugh out loud at the same time!

Ahhh... why didn't they cut the hook off and then push the barb through??

However, very funny! I loved your commentary!

That poor guy! That hook looks like it was really, really deep! Streamside surgery is risky and sometimes painful! That guy is a STUD! I think he should fish a little looks like he needs the practice.

Oh, and he's hot too!

Didn't make my skin crawl (I've given birth) teehee but, boy did I laugh!!! That is one of the funniest videos I've ever seen! Those men are something else-perfect title!!

I love it. I had not seen this before. Yeah, it is not like giving birth. My favorite part is when Ron says that he has to relax. It took three grown men to remove that fly. Too funny!!

He was sort of hot though. haha

Lynn- I have not idea. One of the guys there is a paramedic so I would at least one of them would know what to do.... unless they just wanted to torture him on purpose!

Anonymous Ron- Very funny!

Lori- I love your blog! What beautiful boys you have!

Tete- Can't believe you never saw this!!!! It is classic!

Jennifer- Glad you found my blog! I love finding people whom we are sharing this long and crazy journey with!

That is the funniest thing I have seen since Spamalot! Wow, men are such babies! Cute babies, but still...

I think it's awesome that you have this on video so you can torture him in years to come!

Whenever he is hurt, you just have to say "is it as bad as the time you had a fly hook, or worse?"

too cute
