Ask McFartnuggets: “Why Are So Many Athletes Getting Leg Fractures?”

Take care of your
fibulas, folks!
Dear McFartnuggets: 
How come ever since Kevin Ware all these other athletes like Anderson Silva and Paul George are snapping their legs in half too? I never used to see this happen and now it happens to someone new every year. Why are so many pro athletes getting their legs broken in half? -- Saralyn from Toronto, Canada

Dear Saralyn:
I don’t think they’re doing it on purpose. Each time this happens it’s considered a “freak accident.” It’s not a new trend that cool athletes are starting up. People won’t be giving themselves compound fractures on purpose and them snapping pics to upload to Twitter and Instagram. We’d need a few more celebrities to do that before it really started trending. No, I think the main factor here is just random. Sometimes basketball players land strangely and the pressure on the bone causes it to snap. It hasn’t really happened much in the years before Kevin Ware, but since then there have been two more. It’s kind of like when celebrities die. Remember when Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, and Billy Mays died all within a few days of each other? It’s basically like that. Of course having super long skinny legs doesn’t help, which is something Kevin Ware, Anderson Silva, and Paul George all have.
