Ironically, Rasputin's Real Life death wasn't at all Rasputinian; the 1916 autopsy report (as discovered after the Cold War and reviewed by American and Russian doctors in 2002) shows that Rasputin was shot in the head with a .455 Webley and died instantly. However, his killers wanted to portray him as a near-indestructible son of Satan, so they made up an elaborate story about how he survived poison, beating, and bullet wounds only to drown in the Neva. Later embellishments by Yusupov (he thought up a new one every time he was short on money) even had Rasputin dying of hypothermia, having attempted to claw through the ice that covered him.*

My best "comedy" injury was caused by rushing to get out of the shower to answer the door to sign for a delivery
The only serious injury I've ever had was when I was thirteen years old. For some reason I never quite figured out, my aunt used to rent one of those bouncy castle things for our big family gatherings at Thanksgiving, even when most of us kids were teenagers. But they're still fun even when you're old enough that you're supposed to have outgrown them.
