He was innocently lying on the couch, watching Law & Order Special Victims Unit at 3:00 pm, just before The Office came on in double episode at 4:00 pm. When all of a sudden the remote fell on the floor. He reached over to grab it and fell off the couch, hitting his head and temporarily knocking himself out. When he regained conciousness, he got up off the floor to go look in the mirror at any possible bruises. Unfortunately, the cat had knocked over a vase filled with flowers and water and he slipped on the hardwood floor. When the ambulance came, Dudley was in major pain. Turns out he'd wrenched his back, broke his ankle and wrist. He'd turned from a Couchpotato into an Ouchpotato. Later, when asked what caused his injury, he was able to truthfully tell people that while on an undercover assignment, he was attacked when a wild cat hit him in his sweet peas, on his way to The Office. Sadly, he was believed...

Today's definition was suggested by Tigger. Thank you Tigger. ~ James

Excellent definition, Tigger. I actually had this happen before one of my first dates with my wife, and I didn't tell her the real story until a couple months after we were married.

Hey Banky, what was the injury? And how did you hide it from your future wife? ~ James

Tigger - 2008-04-15: 22:43:00
Oh, good words everyone. I couldn't wait to get home and see what everyone came up with. I'm currently nursing a pulled stomach muscle that I got while I was reaching for the phone, when I happened to sneeze at the same time. So, I'm the idiot that inspired the definition.
