I wrote a short article about Chainsaw Juggling Accidents, and here is part two with more chainsaw juggling accidents!
The previous article on chainsaw juggling accidents can be found at https://chainsawjuggling.com/chainsaw-juggling-accident/ .
When it comes to juggling injuries I have several, but most are not from chainsaws. Oddly my worst juggling injury came from juggling 3 clubs. One somehow hit me in the eye. It really, really hurt for a few days. It was also kinda black and puffy. I probably should have gone to the doctor.
I’ve burned myself a few times with torches. In the days I had long hair (yes this happened, I had hair…) I burned the hair off several times while juggling. It really stunk!
And now, another chainsaw juggling accident story!
So I’ve never cut my skin on the blade of a saw, but once I did hit the wrong end. Luckily, somehow my finger hit the bar and not the chain. I cou
ld have easily lost a finger!
So what have I cut, honestly, once I cut my pants. That’s right, I cut through my pants but managed not to hit my leg.
I was performing in the auditions round of Canada’s Got Talent in Halifax, Nova Scotia. And there, onstage infant of a sold out crowd, celebrity judges and tv cameras everywhere I dropped a chainsaw that was held between my legs and cut the inside of my pants. A long tear.
The producer of the show said my performance was the funniest performance on the show, but for some reason they never aired my segment. I got 3 yes’s and no x’s. The show lasted only one season because of low ratings, so I’m kinda glad I wasn’t shown as part of the sinking ship. But it makes a great story!
Here is an article about Canada’s Got Talent, I sadly never got to see it as it was on a channel I didn’t get. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada’s_Got_Talent
