Man Finds UK Leg in Florida

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

    I dont know but that guy should get a complimentary Coach Cal fantasy camp ticket………..and Coach Cal missed out, he should have put golden tickets in chocolate bars to see who would get to enter fantasy camp, sometimes I think Cal is very much like Willy Wonka

    The guy that lost the prosthetic leg tried to claim it from the fisherman. The problem was he didn’t have proof that it was his leg. Without a receipt he didn’t have a leg to stand on.

    This is surely a sign of the apocalypse, and don’t call me Shirley. I’m putting my boat in the water and heading toward Crab Island. Maybe there are other such treasures to be found,
