when men around the world thought it was safe to do their
zippers up, disaster struck.
Jaccobsen of Milwakee Pennsylvania, Texas, only went into
the 'can' for a 'quick one'.
little did he expect that his 'moment of relief'
would lead to four nights in hospital and an upcoming appearance
warning signs were there for Ben, 32, in the hit movie When
Harry Met Sally. In that movie a character, played by
another Ben, Ben Stiller, pulls at his fly and catches his
'hows your father' to hilarity all round.
Stiller, for all his excellent comedic skills, doesn't have
the 'bathroom presence' that Jaccobsen, four time
winner of The Biggest 'Hmmm Hmmm' In Texas, does.
takes up the story:
first I felt a red hot heat at the base of my 'you
know what' but continued pulling none-the-less, I'm
a sporty guy and a little pain is not a barrier to doing
the pain got a whole lot worse as I went on, so I eventually
stopped about three quarters of the way up after a good
deal of screaming, panting and sweating.
I looked down and to my surprise it looked exactly in
every detail like it did in the movie."
who will have to wear a 20 inch long plaster on his 'oooh
sir' for the next three months is philosophical about
must go on. It just so happens that they showed When
Harry Met Sally at the hospital just after my operation.
I didn't at first want to laugh but eventually I joined
in because people started asking awkward questions."
