Today, I rescued a cactus from a lethal fall. It thanked me with a handful of spines. FML

Yeah, gotta love those lightning quick reflexes and how they come in handy when you really shouldnt have them.

Yeah, those cacti are vengeful fuckers. Either that or you're an idiot for catching one with your bare hands. While you're at it, would you give my pet porcupine a bath? He's quite tame, I assure you.

Well it was worth it! Oh, wait. It was a cactus.

Out a cactus.. I'll catch it, idiot

Seems like a prickly situation...

Let the cactus hit the floor, let the cactus hit the floor, let the cactus hit the floor, let the cactus hit the FLOOR!

I don't know what's worse catching a falling cactus or catching a falling knife by its blade??

I caught a 3 blade razor whilst it was falling. Ten years later the finger it sliced up still plays up in the cold weather. But then again I also once caught an arrow...with my kn...*boom* *splatter*

There's only one kind of cacti worth saving, and it doesn't even have spines. It's called Lophophora williamsii, if you don't know what that is, look it up.

It's a fucking cactus. I think you would get more hurt than the cactus. Use your brain OP, YDI.

52 just caught a cannonball with his face

What the hell did you expect?

If you paid attention, you'd find that it was the same account, correcting their gender.

Thank you for saving one of my people with your LIGHTNING fast reflexes, hinting at my name.

The cactus was just showing its affection for you saving its life o.O

1- and how you don't have your reflexes when you do need them.

Nice catch! Sometimes natural instincts hurt.

When I saw this FML I thought of Splinter Cell the game.

Yeah, nice catch. Too bad the catchee was so very ungrateful.

I thought of a hand full of splinters I landed on one with my hand to stop my fall once. Fucking sucked

What a prick

Pun time is fun time

Boooooooo

I thought that was great.

Nope. Chuck Testa.

Or, the cactus wanted to POINT out how much it dislikes you by becoming a little PRICK... No? Okay...

Why would you even save a cactus? When I first read this, I thought it said cat. That would be a lot more pleasant and rewarding.

Although equally spikey.

Why would you save it? Well, I would save it because it is a beautiful creature that needs to be told it is beautiful. I would take a bullet for a cactus. I would hold it in my arms and treat it like it's the only cactus in the world, how a cactus should be treated, I would do many things for a cactus. The cactus, my lover, is a gorgeous thing. Crazy am I? Love knows no boundaries! Say me and the cactus are too young? Love knows no age! Cliché? Cliché love, me, cactus, cliché.

I guess the cactus didn't want to be saved? You can't save cactus's.. Cactus's have to want save themselves

Cactus's? If only there was a plural for cactus!!! Ooh, wait......cacti you say? Hmm, genius.

Atleast now you can use your hand as a spikey mace.

This is like that time I tried to save that porcupine.

I would go to the local church in I were you. Only someone possessed by Satan would try and save a cactus from a painful death. I go to home depot and buy cacti, just so i can hang them by the bottom and watch them suffer a painful ordeal. You OP are not very intelligent. One time I picked every one of the cacti's thorns out and stuck in back in, pointy end first. Grow a soul OP, murder some plants if you want to be cool.

Ohhhh christians......

Ohhhh bad jokes...

Yeah, those cacti are vengeful fuckers. Either that or you're an idiot for catching one with your bare hands. While you're at it, would you give my pet porcupine a bath? He's quite tame, I assure you.

And make sure you dry him by hand, I've heard that animals don't do too well when sent through the dryer.

At first I thought you were going to insult people for owning cacti, and was about to go post about how my aunt kills anything that requires daily watering...... But then I finished!.. And realized I agreed with you.

55 - please tell me all that went through your brain in 2 seconds, 'cause that's a lot of disagreeing and then agreeing for just two sentences.

Sevrandy, I'm very impressed that you're spry, but I'm not sure what that has to do with anything. Obviously my humour doesn't appeal to you, and that's fine. But obviously there are people who do appreciate it, so why denigrate it like that? Does that somehow make you feel better as a person? All your comment accomplished was to make you look like an insecure, jealous ass.

108 - not only do I appreciate Docs humor, but he stood up for me in a previous post so that earns him my respect. I'm guessing that most people appreciate that he's very honest. If you're an idiot and draw attention to your idiocy he'll call you out on it.
