Rep. Kennedy Hit in the Mouth by Hammer

By the looks of this headline, you'd-uh-thunk that Tom "The Hammer" DeLay slugged Rep. Patrick Kennedy in the kisser, or perchance orally raped him.

So sorry to disappoint, but upon further investigation, you'll see that Kennedy simply got hit in the mouth by an airborne hammer's head. The hammer-wielding fellow Matt Kriesel, was trying to display the shock absorption properties of his "gel," but ended up demonstrating the shock absorption properties of a Congressman's bottom lip.

Six stitches later, it was determined that the Congressman's bottom lip is a woefully inferior shock absorption material than the "gel" the Kriesel was demonstrating.
