When an unfortunate accident involving an agricultural threshing machine resulted in the severance of an arm yesterday in rural Somerset, village idiot Drew Halfbrain was in no doubt as to what he had to do.
Halfbrain, despite being the village idiot realised that time was of the essence, so he immediately picked up the severed arm and ran to get help.
Despite being a heavy smoker, Halfbrain managed to cover seven miles cross country in a state of extreme distress before collapsing into the A&E Department of Bridgewater General Hospital.
It was only there that doctors berated him because the arm belonged to his colleague, who was later found deceased at the site of the accident.
The severed arm was dumped in a skip, and the previous owner will be buried next Tuesday, probably along with the arm.
Drew Halfbrain declined to comment on the grounds that he was working on his vowels.
