(Srsly, what was with that sniffling??)
Jose Canseco recently had an unfortunate incident happen to him while he was playing in a poker tournament. His surgically attached finger, which he shot off, totally fell off!!!
And Jose was not going to NOT talk about the whole thing on social media!
Here's the uncomfortable details that he shared on Twitter, writing:
"Dam I was playing in a poker tournament last night and something crazy happened to my finger that I shot off and they put back on. I knew something crazy was going to happen with this dam finger cause it felt like it was falling off…My finger should have been amputated from the beginning. It was very loose with no bone to connect it. it was also smelling really bad."
Wow! Talk about too much information!
Still, we'll give props where props are due. Jose Canseco DID keep his sense of humor about the whole thing. In a series of tweets, he joked:
"I could probably hit a softball further with 9 fingers…less weight means more bat speed. Lol…This is my finger before it fell off. Maybe I will sell it on ebay. After all that finger hit 462 mlb homeruns…I put my finger in the freezer anyone want finger appetizers…Or is it finger snacks."
Even William Shatner had to applaud Jose for his light take on this serious subject matter, writing:
"Wow. Only you could find humor in that my friend! LOL!"
Well, he's got the Shat's attention, so that's one thing!
The gruesome photo that Jose shared though of his still attached fallen finger is the really, truly disturbing part of this story.
In fact, it's so gross, it was taken down from Twitter.
Which is OK with us because you would really need a strong stomach to weather that photo storm!!!
