    But with a Bengali man? Is there some new craze in the cock fighting underworld for strapping razors onto already hyperactive and dangerous birds?

    Next they will be strapping frikkin' lasers onto sharks.

    Must have been a bloody big blade for a cut to his leg to have killed him. What were the birds? Ostriches? Maybe a long lost colony of Moa?

    Either way, bloody good shot.

      bloody big blade

      Or a small slash to the inside thigh severing the femeral artery - 8mm should do it..

      1. Anonymous Coward

        title ?

        Given that it was is calf that was stabbed (not his thigh), and that he died two days later, he almost certainly died of a wound infection. Remember folks this is what can happen if you don't wash your cock regularly.

        Given that you used the boffin icon, I can't resist pointing out that it's femoral, not femeral, artery.

        1. George Nacht

          Attention to details

          He died two hours after sustaining injury, not two days. So, some kind of complication was a factor here, but I doubt the infection. Embolia, maybe? Severe maltreatment of the wounded calf, resulting in increased blood loss?

          Or, for the thrill seekers... Poison on the cock blade?

          Still, I admit that the opportunity to raise awareness about cock washing should not be missed...

            "Embolia, maybe? " Spanish for embolism ? Maybe, but my money's on anaphalactic shock. Still caused by a dirty cock.

          When deploying the Grammar Nazi alert, one should re-read the original article, any comments to which one is replying and one's own text before posting - just in case one inadvertently shows one's self up. Case in point: you have come to an entirely unlikely conclusion (albeit providing a good hook for a pun) because you did not pay attention to the period of time between wounding and death.

          Two HOURS, not days.

        Re: bloody big blade

        Probably the posterior tibial artery, if severed you'll bleed to death without a tourniquet (in fact bending the knee and applying pressure could save you), bleeding out is just not as fast as the femoral, the femoral artery is also notoriously fiddly to stop bleeding with pressure (and astoundingly painful).

    It should be easy to do better than this...

    In an attempt to get a breast of the situation, the arrival of the police ruffled feathers as the previously plucky illegal fighters fled the nest. The egg-ascerbated spectator who had suffered foul play as a result of an over agitated cock, claimed with his dying breath that he had nothing to do with it; he had only wanted to have a plucking good time and thought the invite said, "hen night". Police told him to stop pulling their legs. Suspects have been rounded up and are expected to get a good roasting; for now, they're all rib-caged.

    Is it possible to construe that the police conducted their investigation THEN had the repeat offender taken for medical attention. Justice at its very best. Is it possible the fatality can be regarded as work place accident or suicide with an unusual weapon of choice. I like the thought of man being nailed by his own cock...

    Cockfighting, bearbaiting, bullfighting etc. Perhaps if we could arrange things...... that those in the audience for these events died at least a frequently when they watch as the poor bloody animals do we would discover that these "sports" would die a natural death. One can always hope.
