This month on the live podcast, things got a little crazy. We had pro wrestler, Navy Ogbuokiri AKA The Dark Mon, come in and shoot the shit with us. Everything was running smoothly until we let the audience ask questions. One audience member, Kristin, had the brilliant idea of daring Navy to pick me, Vortex Baby Colin, up over his head. Why not? I didn’t really have a choice in the matter so we went up to the front of the stage and I prepared for the worst. When he first picked me up, it didn’t seem that bad. “Oh, he’s just picking me up around his shoulders,” I thought. I thought wrong. Navy then fully extended his arms upwards and lifted me over his head. As if being lifted eight feet up in the air wasn’t ridiculous enough, he was lifting me by my neck! Afterwards, someone in the audience said that they thought my head was going to explode. Luckily, I survived the ordeal and am here today to give you photographic proof that this happened. Check out the photos below, see more of The Dark Mon at https://www.instagram.com/thedarkmon/ and listen to the podcast over at Feats of Drunken Strength. (more…)
