The Big Blue Nation is everywhere. Want proof? Well in Florida recently, a man found a UK prosthetic leg in the ocean. According to the Northwest Florida paper:
A local shrimp boat captain pulling up his nets early Thursday morning had a startling catch.
First he saw a foot and thought it was a body. Then he realized that the foot was part of a prosthetic limb.
“We’ve caught (portable toilets), boat trailers and crab traps,” said Matt Willingham, who owns the Michele Dawn shrimp boat and Willingham Seafood. “This was the first to catch a prosthetic leg.”
Willingham said that if the limb had been in the water longer, it would have been covered with barnacles. He speculated that someone lost the limb at Crab Island the past weekend.
It came up in the turtle excluder during a pass between Crab Island and the Brooks Bridge at about 2 a.m. Its owner was apparently a University of Kentucky fan, since the molded knee portion had been airbrushed with the school’s motto and a wildcat.
The Soleus limb was wearing a Keen water sandal in what appeared to be a size 9 or 10
So there you go…if you lost your leg, you know where to get it. #BBN
