Irresponsible Knife Owner of the Day

First Caption Contest Entry: Blade Abuse Edition

photo (58)

This is not the Caption This picture. It is below the jump due to several requests. I can understand why people found it disturbing. This knife is the prize for the contest winner.

I am not sure what to make of our first entry in our “Caption This” Contest. I can’t argue that this isn’t at least somewhat knife related, because this person has obviously spent time in close proximity to several sharp objects. As the first entry, Aaron P. has put himself in the pole position in the race to win a limited edition CRKT Minimalist.

Editors Note: Aaron’s entry features an individual who has taken body modification to the extreme. While I am not going to take the picture down, I did move it below the jump so consider yourself warned…

I hope that this picture breaks the ice and more of our readers send us humorous pictures that they find out on the interwebs. I will post the pictures to the blog and the winner will be the picture that garners the most captions from other readers.

Send your submissions to thetruthaboutknives@gmail.com. You could be the winner of the CRKT Minimalist.

Reader Aaron P’s entry in the contest disturbed enough people that I moved it below the jump.

      • …I don’t know what would compel that much body modification.

        ….how about social pathology? I feel very sorry for anyone who feels compelled to do such self-mutilation. And, yes, it’s mutilation.

        This kid hasn’t a prayer of achieving a productive life.

  1. Nice teeth?
    How fucked up is this guy?
    Too old to run, I’m getting at least a finger in some part of his face and see what happens after that

  2. I am going to have to stop coming to this site until that photo gets off the top of the page. I makes my skin crawl just to look at that.

  3. Despite his efforts to shock and I would guess intimidate some parts of the general public, I can pretty much guarandamntee that dipstick has never been in a real brawl. WTH is the point of mutilating yourself like that? Ink? Sure. Nobody even blinks an eye anymore. But THAT crap? Dont matter if you have a Phd in rocket surgery. Everybody thinks youre an idiot. And I agree. Please take that disgusting pic down.

  4. Entry caption:

    “What’s a fistulated cow? For science huh… fifty bucks? Hell yeah, why not?”

  5. Sidenote, I may be the only person on the site who isn’t bothered by this.

    “Dude, this sucks! My mom kept telling the dentist I told her I wouldn’t brush cuz no one’s gonna see. He said he’d take care of it and put me under…what if I need braces now!? I totally can’t hide them. Everyone will think I look so dumb!”

    • Lol. Thanks for the laugh. 🙂

      I wasn’t particularly disturbed by the picture. I have seen much worse in my EMT/Firefighting days. But I can understand how the pic can be quite jarring as the first thing you see as a visitor to the site. Our dedicated readers understand the context and have a sense of the overall feel we are going for on the blog.

      A first time or casual reader might not understand and I do understand that picture is not the “face” that TTAK wants to put forward to the world.

    • As I mentioned, it is borderline. But it has certainly drawn comments. I might not have put it up had I been receiving a ton of entries, but I thought it would as the first entry at least break the ice.
