Now, if anyone ever told you that the Irish weren't pure badass masculinity distilled, this is proof that you were lied to. Seems a fella in Dublin had his hand severed when he was attacked by a loon with a samurai sword. Did he react like you or me, and run whimpering to the hospital?
Nossir. He PUNCHED HIS ATTACKER IN THE FACE WITH HIS BLOODY STUMP.
Omigawd. Feckin' hell. I guess that's what Tullamore Dew will do for you. Another intersting note: the attacker had 31 priors.
And you thought you were a drinking champ. :)
