Have you ever superglued something to yourself?

I can honestly say I have never seen anything like this before. Words fail me.
Although I do remember doing this.  Seems we all have our Superglue disasters.

YES! I superglue my fingers together on an alarmingly regular basis (and by "regular" I mean "every time I have reason to use superglue")! I've also superglued my car key and a dish towel to my hand (though thankfully not on the same occasion). Oh, and I have also superglued the cap of the superglue bottle to my hand. Many times.

Moral of the story: Heather should never use superglue. :-D

I thought nail polish remover removed super glue? This is what I've always used to get it off of my fingers. I figured they would just take a bottle and pour it over and PRESTO! The hat would come off.

But maybe I'm wrong!

I can honestly say that in all my years as a nurse, I have never seen such a thing.

Have none of them heard of acetone - ie, nail polish remover??

I don't buy the instant stuff. You know...just in case... I'm pretty sure that post was a blogtation back in the day and I do believe it was how I first discovered your wonderful blog. Am I right?

HAHAHAHAHA That is hilarious!!!

I have learnt my lesson with super glue. I always wear gloves now whenever I need to use the silly glue!

Surely the dude would realise gluing it to a headband would have been the better option? Idiot! LOL

Oh, my goodness, that is hilarious!! Best part is that he has the episode recorded for posterity.

I was impressed with his calm demeanour! I wonder if he left the building and sobbed in the car?

I needed that Sunday morning laugh! Thank you so much!

So funny! That reminded me of a rather unpopular neighbor Kid 1 who got his eyebrow split open by a rather naughty neighbor Kid 2. Kid 1 went to the ER for stitches and the inexperienced doctor glued the eyebrow shut. The inexperienced doctor also glued Kid 1's eye shut. Kid 1 had to wait a long time before he could use both eyes again. I tried not to laugh when Kid 1 or his mother was close by. Kid 2 too, for that matter. But I confess I laughed a lot with Kid 2's mom when there were no witnesses.

Yeah, acetone should have worked. These days, I never use superglue without a bottle of acetone to unstick my fingers.

Worst I ever did was glue my finger to the sole of a broken shoe. I didn't have acetone then, and I believe I left most of my fingerprint on the sole...

After you've separated your fingers, you need to file your gluey skin down with sandpaper if you want to be able to feel the keys on your piano.

That is a lot of look (as Tim Gunn on Project Runway would say).
