Ro Sham Bo injury. If they ask further, "someone brought real scissors, blood everywhere".

Training for the professional bowler's tour.

Wearing it until people get used to seeing it on you, then when you add the Assasin's Creed blade and your victims will never see it coming.

Hiding a weird growth under your wrist that started just after a bite from an oddly colored spider.

Any time I hear of a wrist injury, I think of what happened to Colbert.

Since "I was a talk show host and slipped on my stage and launched an international campaign to bring awareness to wrist violence in Hollywood" isn't necessarily "believable", you could just say that you were breakdancing and literally broke something.

When I was on crutches, after stepping off the curb while mowing the lawn and spraining my ankle (truly lame, not to mention embarrassing), my standard reply was:

"Sports-related injury. I came in second in the international puppy-kicking competition. You shoulda seen the guy that got first place!"

The looks of horror, disbelief and disgust...

Or you could try:

"Repetitive Motion Injury - slapping people who ask me stupid questions!"

Drunkenly getting into a lance competition with someone at a Renn Fair. Your gaunlet fell off and they lanced you straight through the wrist. It broke off in there and had to be pulled out. The EMT had a heart attack while removing it before taking you to the hospital, causing it to splinter, coming two millimeters away from hitting a critical artery.

I wish I had thought of asking here when my daughter broke her wrist. She would've loved these! She actually fell while waiting in line for the beam in gymnastics class. Onto a padded floor. She just told people she fell during gymnastics, not mentioning the whole part where she was in line, not on any equipment.

@j5 i'm seeing an episode of "dirty jobs" in there somewhere.

I would just stick w/ the truth.
a few years back i broke my leg in a stupid, no fun way, that people still laugh at when they hear what happened. I could have come up w/ all sorts of stories, but just stuck to the real deal.
Summer 1999 - while trying to maintain a social life with HS friends before they went off to college and also working 3rd shift, (so pretty much burning the candle @ both ends untill i would crash for 12+hrs) one afternoon i was awoken by a phone call (no answering machine back then, folks refused to buy one..) had left phone across room on charger. so i get up and kinda dash for the phone to answer it, not realizing my right leg was asleep. 2-3 paces in i just hear a snap, then intense pain, and i'm lying naked on the floor, no one home. some how reached the phone, tried calling mom's office, already on her way home (didn't yet have a cell), get ahold of my uncle, and he gets to the house just as mom is pulling in the drive...

vote-for2vote-against

I some how managed to slip on a pair of undies from the hamper, so i'd be somewhat decent when help arrived, now my mother and uncle have to some how get all 300 Lbs of me more dressed, and up the stairs out of out basement, then get me to the hospital. luckily, since i had been asleep for 15 hrs before the incident, it had been long enough since i had eaten they could take me into surgery asap.

I had snapped both bones in my right leg just above the ankle. Still have the hardware in that leg. (2 screws on one side, plate and 5 screws on the other) If it ever gives me trouble, and has to come out, i'll be back on Crutches/short term disability for a couple months while the bone fills in holes.
