What are some of your biggest fears?
A while ago, Blog Owner Jonathan Airport and I were watching a reality cop show.
Cops were engaged in a road chase with some bad guy and were trying slow the bad guy's momentum.
Then the bad guy decides to try his luck with a side swipe of a cop car.
The announcer tells us that the cop's "worst fear was realized, when [The Bad Guy] rams him" with his car.
Now I know that this is a situation it would suck to be in. But we thought it was strange that the cop's "worst fear" was to be rammed by this particular man's car.
Did they meet before? With the bad guy saying to the cop, "I'm totally going to ram you with my car" and the cop is like, "that is my greatest fear, but only if you do it".
We puzzled over this. Wouldn't your worst fear be something like those nightmares where you wake up naked in class? Or about to fall off a bridge? Or being chased by an axe murderer? Or, after a while going down this line of thought, "like a rabbit stealing your penis"?
The cop tracks the rabbit through the forest. Suddenly there is a fluffy white blur near the cop's midsection. And the cop looks down with terror, wants to do something but knows it's too late.
Scene closes with cop on ground, eyes unfocused, trembling, covering his crotch with his hands, violently sobbing.
"his worst fear was realized..."
