Dude, one time I was on my boat, and I had this Canadian dancer on there with me. So we were sitting there, and this carp jumped out of the water and hit this girl right in the face. Bam! It split her lip. There was blood everywhere. I had to take her to the emergency room, and she had eight stitches on her lip. It was horrible, man.
