Bloody Knuckles

Bloody knuckles is a game where two players take turns punching each other on the knuckles until somebody gives up or someone makes you stop playing. It’s most often played by bored high school kids and drunk assholes at the bar. If you ever wake up with your hand hurting after a night of drinking, you were probably one of those drunk assholes playing it at the bar. It’s a game of machismo, a casual contest of strength that you play with your friends like arm wrestling or slap boxing. You’re not trying to hurt the other person necessarily, you’re simply trying to win and getting hurt is sometimes an unfortunate byproduct. Pain is a good thing though. That’s why people play games like bloody knuckles. It’s always entertaining watching people get hurt.

Watching Someone Get Hurt

People are inherently mean. That’s why we enjoy watching someone get hurt. It’s funny to see people fail. That’s why YouTube is full of fail videos and Russian dash cam footage. It’s why America’s Funniest Home Videos is still on the air. I once saw my friend’s little brother bomb down a hill on his bike and crash directly into a parked car. He flew about fifteen feet through the air and landed on his back in some bushes. It was a horrifying accident, but we were too busy laughing to immediately run over and check on him. He was pretty busted up, he broke his arm and needed a couple of stiches and his mom was pretty pissed off, but we still laugh about it and give him shit to this day. Watching someone get hurt is better than getting hurt yourself. Maybe that’s why it’s so enjoyable. I don’t want to see anybody die or get paralyzed, but I’m totally down to witness a skateboarder take a rail to the nuts or watch a little kid fall off his scooter. That would be hilarious. You can call me an asshole all you want, but you know that you would laugh too if you saw me trip down a flight of stairs.
