Before You Jump Into That Ear Pinning Surgery

|

Consider this. From The Daily Mail:

A boy in China was saved from the certain death of an eight-storey fall when his head got stuck in the bars of a window after he fell through.
Ming Ming, aged six, was only prevented from plunging straight through the grate to his death by his ears.
Instead, he was left dangling high above the street, to the terror of passers-by below.

 

Like Dumbo before him, a boy who may or may not have been previously mocked for the size of his ears, was saved by them. And then he flew away, free at last. Along those lines, remember how cute Dumbo was? And remember when his mom sings him “Baby Mine”? My goodness. Tears of joy and sadness and emotion and tiny baby cartoon animals and their mothers¬†after the jump. I’m about to get all Mothers Day up in here.

Oh man.
