And in news that is just too bizarre to categorize, a bat pissed in Torche guitarist Andrew Elstner’s eye.
A BAT. PISSED. IN HIS. EYE.
I housed the James Leg guys at the old house where I used to live in Wildwood. For those unaware, this house was built in 1824 and rests on 70+ acres, and my old roomie who still lives here leaves the back door open so his dogs came roam at will…I switch on the overhead light/ceiling fan combo and what I think at first is a shadow being cast from the spinning fan blades turns out to be a freaking bat. It circles the room a few times at light speed, and on one of the turns, dive bombs my head and squirts a little nervous pee into my eye. Holy shit. I’m laughing but run to the sink and attempt to flush my eye out. I’m pretty sure I’m fine but…not the most common of occurrences.
After a series of rabies tests, dude was given a clean bill of health and Torche are back on the road.
WATCH OUT FOR KAMIKAZE PISSING BATS
Happy Saturday, y’all. Don’t let a bat pee in your eye.
