A paper cut is a small cut that you get from a piece of paper. Even though they are small cuts, they are deceptively painful. You can die from them. You probably won’t, but it’s still a possibility. You could get a paper cut on a major artery and bleed out, or the paper cut could get infected, or the piece of paper could be poisoned. There are lots of ways to die from a paper cut. It’s one of the main reasons why I won’t ever work in an office. It’s too dangerous. Paper cuts have been a fixture of pop culture for decades. There was a bully character on Nickelodeon’s The Adventures of Pete & Pete named Paper Cut. His gimmick was making deadly paper weapons. There was also the infamous scene in Jackass: The Movie where Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O get self-inflicted paper cuts. It makes me cringe every time. I wouldn’t wish a paper cut upon my worst enemy.
