Ben vs. the Scorpion

posted by on October 30 at 13:20 PM

There are a lot of jokes to be made here about the kinds of things one could find in Ben Gibbard’s pants, but I’ll keep it clean and just relay the basic information straight from Nick Harmer’s blog:

So tonight in San Diego, Ben got stung by a SCORPION. Twice. I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried, file this under “things that really happen on rock tours.” Ben’s okay, if not a little shaken, but we were worried for awhile because the scorpion was a little guy and when it comes to the wonderful world of scorpions, the smaller the deadlier.

Read more about the incident (and see a picture of the lil’ bugger) here.

(Thanks to Matt for the tip.)
