    Either way, you’re toast.

    You could cut off the end of the short way and then push. Or would that be too easy?

    Talk about a guy who REALLY needs a second opinion! Here are my ideas:

    1. Try to set up a consultation meeting with the Wichita Lineman.
    2. Wipe down the entire pole with a lot of K-Y jelly.
    3. Meanwhile bed down the patient in room 32L. ( L for LONG).
    4. Call the Zoo and see if we can borrow some beavers.
    5. Strip off all the electrical wiring, sell the copper to pay for the K-Y jelly.

    @ marg: I think in any real world situation he would already be toast! But this is NOT the real world.

    Obviously it needs to come out the long way. To pull it through the short way would expose him needlessly to the harmful PCB’s in the transformers at the short end. This is really a job for the EPA superfund and the poor patient is simply collateral damage for a greater good.

    I actually met someone who had this happen to him with a piece of rebar. They had to cut it to get him into the ambulance, of course. He was in that stage of shock when a person is very logical and reasonable and was the one who reminded his co-workers and EMTs to cool the bar with water between him and the torch.

    They better do something before he develops termites.

    …and blood-free!

    How the hell does one find themselves skewered in such a manner to begin with?

    Was he lying in the bushes by the side of the road when the FiOS™ truck rolled through town…

    …in his underwear?

    We mustn’t forget about cartoon physics. Remember, it’s a given.
