How did Fiddlerman cut his thumb? for details see this topic What Are Your Goals , Page: 2 Post number: 21

My guess is he was chopping wood for a campfire. Went somewhere on his boat and had an outing of it, I mean, really, even in Florida, I bet they have campfires December.

Seriously, @Fiddlerman, we all hope you recover quickly and wish your thumb well. If this thread brings a big SMILE to your face, we have all done our job.

😁

Edit 12/30/2021: Since Fiddlerman has stated how he did it the the post he first referenced it in, make up a story of how you think he did it. If you can find a way to connect a violin, viola, cello, or Fiddlershop into it, all the better. By the way, it was chopping wood for campfires.

He was desperate to record his next fantastic tutorial, realising his nails were too long to play Violin and, with his nail clippers nowhere to be found he set about using a small axe.

Fiddlerman will be coming to a youtube episode of 'what could possibly go wrong' soon.

At this time of year, he must have been trying to cut a red kuri squash. Those make the best soups… but you do need an axe to cut them. Good thing they don't need peeling, or it's not just his thumb that would have suffered 😌.

OK, now I really can't stop laughing. BIG NEWS!!!! ROFL

When I get home, I'll take a picture of the axe, and then you guys will understand. Granted, I'll never make that mistake again and fortunately, I still have a thumb. 😁

Jer said it was a good thing you didn't have a "real" axe 😂.

We want a photo of the thumb, too.

Nooo we don't, the axe will suffice. I might faint 🙃. Or put it in a "spoiler" hidden thing…

Fiddlerman is filming a new video showing a really cheap Violin. You know the type.

 

He discusses why it is not a good violin and raises his small axe to it and throws it at the violin. The axe flies through the air, slow motion, it hits the strings...which are made of elastic! The axe rebounds off the violin "noooo" cries Fiddlerman (in slow motion again for added effect). The axe swings into his thumb, blood spills.

 

"Ha, ha. Now you can't play" says cheap Violin, putting a special force field up around itself. " I will continue to cheat people into thinking I am worthy, I will ruin Christmas and birthdays by being a totally unusable and unplayable gift, you can't stop me whhhaaa haaaa haaa" (evil laugh).

 

"But, you forgot one thing" says Fiddlerman...he picks up his Violin and plays through the pain....the most beautiful music resonates from his Violin..."I am Fiddlermannnnnnnn" he yells!

 

The force field melts around cheap Violin as Fiddlerman takes one final stomp upon it at the end of his music. He puts on his sunglasses, the credits music begins...we see Fiddlerman walking away with the shattered violin on the floor.

 

*Disclaimer....cheap Violin is entirely my own opinion and creative interpretation, not the opinion of Fiddlerman.

Jer is thinking too logically. lol
However, he'll understand when I post the picture. I've used real axes a lot in my life. In Sweden I loved chopping wood. For this I had a big log on the ground to lay the wood that I wanted to chop on and didn't have issues as long as I hit the wood hard enough.
With this "thing" we are calling an axe, picture trying to split wood with a chisel!!!

Thanks @wtw - Some people are asking for just too much. ☹️

Well, welcome to my world. He is a retired engineer. Many a time I have told him, you may be the engineer, but engineers quite often lack common sense. 😂😂😂😂😇

I have come up with more simple solutions to things he has puzzled over because he is thinking too much. "Uh, Jer, why don't you just do this?" and then I hear a meekish, "Oh" Yep, my world, and I would not change it. Honestly, though, he is a smart guy.

@Fiddlerman -

I tried to give you credit for just fiddlin' with kindling, but splitting wood with a toy axe... 🤭 

And, you weren't even at the Bar, throwing axes! 🙄

Next time you get the Viking urge, just visit here:

@Fashionandfiddle -

You are HILARIOUS! 

More!  More!  

 

@wtw -

I've eaten many types of squash, but had not heard of the Red Kuri. 

We have a market fairly close that has just about everything you can imagine - even found Durians there! 😖  So we'll have to look for them to try! 

Thank you!

Funny, Fashionandfiddle.

Where else can we learn about squash than in a violin forum. 😁

I really hope the thumb heals quickly. Not meaning to make light of it. Just trying to put a smile on the face while it is on the mend.

Laughing So Hard Smiley

See ya got yourself a little cleaver there.

This has been a good reminder - to take care of, and protect, our hands. 

Thank you for your sacrifice. 🤭

I agree, a great reminder. As soon as it happened, I was bending and wiggling my thumb to make sure it still worked, then I scratched the thumb to make sure that I didn't cut any noticeable nerves. And all along, the blood was squirting out like a faucet but I had to check ASAP. Looked like a OR movie where they're operating and something goes wrong. LOL
Mind you, the cut wan't that deep. I would imagine that the bone blocked the axe from going deeper.

I remember back in the 90's when violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg almost lost her left pinkie fingertip when she cut herself while cutting onions.
