Surfer Gets Bit By Shark And Goes Directly To The Bar Instead Of The Hospital So He Could Get A Bunch Of Free Drinks

Berger said O’Rourke was treated by a lifeguard but did not go to a hospital, even though Berger said he thinks his friend could have used a stitch or two.

“He immediately went to the bar, because he was like, ‘Hey, I got bit by a shark,'” Berger said. “And people were like, ‘I’ll buy you drinks.’ So he hung out at the pier.”

I mean this is just 100% the correct decision by Frank O’Rourke. I can’t stress how much this is the correct decision. Go to the hospital, spend a bunch of money and have to deal with a million questions by doctors or go to the bar, get a bunch of free drinks and hear the word gnarly a bunch. No brainer.

Imagine how easy this game is for O’Rourke. He walks in with a bloody elbow and it just takes one person to ask what happened. Boom, free drinks. Girls are talking to you. The bartender is giving you doubles for no reason. More girls are talking to you. You instantly become the it thing on the pier.


How about this quote by his friend though?

“It’s inevitable, it’s going to happen,” Berger said. “It’s happened to a couple of my friends. It doesn’t bother you, but I mean, if it’s gonna happen, it’s gonna happen. There’s nothing much you can do to really stop that, so try not to worry about it.”

That’s one hell of a quote for a guy that goes surfing. It just happens? It’s inevitable? Nah, man. Just don’t go out in the water like that. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve gotten older or watching YP and Barstool Outdoors, but I’m so far out on going into the ocean. There’s too much shit in it that I don’t trust. Just give me a pool or lake life.

‘Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever.’ – Shane Falco, also Frank O’Rourke.
