On the plaque thing

had a mate who despite his years on a motorbike decided to degrease the chain by putting it on a centre stand, turning the engine on and engaging 1st gear

soaks the rag puts his hand on the top of the chain running towards the large cog and...viola...right end finger top clean off

He went to hospital and took a few days admission to repair the damage and on his last day we took the manky finger end to the hospital instead of flowers

apparently remmnents of knock out gas and fingers may you ask the nurse for a bowl...lightweight

Why not take some pics and then use your skills to make them into some decals.

Strewth, here's for a speedy recovery chum. Shame about the bike, bit it died saving you from even worse.

A Vikings burial is what it needs!
