Up on the Housetop: Fuck Fuck Fuck!

Reader All-Star Frank alerted Free-Floating Hostility to a study finding that, during the holiday season, decorating causes an increase in the rate of injury from falls, especially for middle-aged people and men. Because this is a professional paper, its authors had to define a fall-related injury as "one received when a person descended because of the force of gravity and struck a surface at the same or lower level." We decided this alert was important (amusing) enough to be promoted out of the comments section. The moral of the story: buy a stepladder and a menorah.

  • Question not examined by CDC is alcohol [or other substances] associated with these injuries. When climbing on the roof to hang lights, it is important to remember not to drink and dive.
