    What are the odds?
    He is quite lucky it didn't push air into a vein or artery. Then it would have been lights out!
    That is how we skin many of our critters easier, make a slit in the one leg, shoot a bunch of air to seperate the skin from the meat. Works pretty slick.
    This reminds me of the zoo keeper that the elephant started to sit on, ran the zoo keeper up the south end of a north bound elephant! He was pulled out, but needed a bath!

    I feel bad for the guy but come on admit it, the visual of the guy being inflated after sitting on an air hose has to make you chuckle a bit.

    Talk about being under pressure at work.

    Dangit Bill, I just posted a link to the same story (different source) a minute ago in another new thread. I went ahead and deleted the thread and just put my snarky comment in your thread instead.)
