A Man Walks Into McDonald’s With Knife In His Back; There’s No Punchline

Imagine you’re just minding your own business, waiting in line for some fast food breakfast at your local McDonald’s when a man walks in. Something seems a bit off about him. Is it the way he walks? Perhaps it’s something about the conversation he’s having on his phone. Or maybe, just maybe, it’s the huge, bloody kitchen knife sticking out of his back.

That was exactly the scene at a Queens, NY, McDonald’s on Tuesday morning, reports CBS NY.

The tall man in a white hat and blood-streaked T-shirt had managed to walk a full block from where he’d been punctured with the knife, go into the McDonald’s, all while also apparently making a phone call about his less-than-stellar situation.

“He was on the phone, I’m pretty sure he was on the phone talking to somebody in his family or a loved one or something,” a witness tells CBS. “He was talking to them and telling them it might be the last time he’s speaking to them.”

The stabbing victim began to pass out and customers rushed to the man’s aid to make sure he didn’t do anything to push the knife further in. Someone also managed to snap some photos with their camera… you know, for the scrapbook.

An ambulance eventually came and took the stabbee to the hospital where he was listed in serious condition.
