You can thank me later…


We have a really good friend.  Let’s call him Coolio.

Coolio is ridiculously athletic, works out like a fiend and only eats health food.  {He likes good beer..   the answer to your question of what we have in common}.

He has climbed mountains, repelled in Yosemite, competed in bike races around the globe.  He’s won GOLD in the Fireman Olympics.   I tell him he’s a douche every chance I get, but really he’s the bomb diggity.  (AND he’s old as fuck but don’t tell him I said that )

He’s also the guy that you may remember tried to give me a squirrel last Christmas.  And no.. ‘squirrel” is not a metaphor for anything.

He showed me a video last night of an exercise he did in cross-fit.   It’s pretty impressive.


But that wasn’t his first try.  His first try wasn’t quite as successful.  I wish I could show it to you…     There must be SOME way I could show you the other video…..   hmmmm..  {twirls mustache whilst standing on railroad tracks}.

Intel for a video..  best trade ever.

Y’all can thank me later.  After you change out of your wet pants.

I’ve watched it 20 times.. I can’t stop laughing.  Is it only funny because he’s my friend or is it funny because he banged his nuts?  I can’t decide, but either way it’s the best Christmas gift he’s ever given me.  Way better than a fucking squirrel.

    The fact that the man who tried to give you a squirrel cracked his own nuts is what I find most amusing!

    1. Hot Mess Mom says:

      Oh. My. God. Awesome!

  2. Too bad there wasn’t a squirrel around to check and see if he cracked a nut.

  3. Becky says:

    OMG… that looked painful. I only wish the clip kept going so you could see his reaction after the fall!

    1. Jessica says:

      I agree! that the best part!

    No, it’s not just you. It was pretty damn funny. Maybe even AFV funny. It does involve balls getting smashed somehow. That’s what they look for!

    daaaamn, mine are vicariously hurting now.

  7. Karen says:

    I’m a Crossfit coach and have seen this done in person. It always makes me laugh and cringe at the same time. I’ve fallen off of boxes too, but thankfully I don’t have goods to injure other than a shin and my pride!

  8. Lunardonut says:

    HYSTERICAL!!! We must watch this as a group at midnight on Sunday!

  9. Laurie says:

    You know what the video needs? An ending with a slow-mo instant replay with some cool music dubbed in like chariots of fire theme song or something. YouTube gold.

  10. I may be blind, but I am totally not seeing how to start the video. :-(

    1. Hot Mess Mom says:

      try again.. It got all hinky and the link was gone.. it’s back now :)

      1. OUCH! That looked painful, but it did make me laugh LOL

    Thanks so much for the Vodka water bottle…you are the bomb diggity! The extra T-shirts were appreciated as well! Lemme know when you’re ready to plan the HMM event for 2013! Have a great new year!!! Love your posts!

  12. Now I just remembered why I hate doing exercises indoors. This kind of thing never happens to me when I go for a gentle stroll in the countryside. Although I did once get bitten by a squirrel, so I can recommend that you keep on staying well clear of the little devils

  13. Alex says:

    bahahaha…..why is it so funny to watch people fall. I completely understand watching it 20 times

  14. Joy says:

    I’d leave a longer comment, but I have to go change my pants.

  15. Dr Charlie says:

    OMG! Testicle Torture! Scrotum surgery STAT!!

    Damn, watching that video caused my nuts to hurt! :’(
