17,616 Men Went to Hospital for Zipper Related Injuries in the Pants Area
When I first read this story, all I could think about was the "Frank and Beans" scene from 'There's Something About Mary'.
Data collected from urology Journal BJU Internaional has produced some shocking numbers. According to them, between 2002 and 2010, 17,616 men went to the ER with zipper related injuries. Meaning, they caught their bits in the zipper bad enough that they had to go to the hospital to get them taken care of. The journal also said that this effects both adults and children and that doctors should be familiar with various de-zipping strategies for these cases.
That is a pretty high number!
If you thought this only happened in movies, you were wrong. I almost guarantee ladies if you ask a guy that you know well enough, he will admit that it has happened at one point of his life. Just maybe not to the extent that it calls for a hospital visit.
