A fellow was mining in the BC wilderness when he was attacked by a bear. The beast snuck upon him while kneeling beside a creek and hit him pretty hard across the back knocking him over. The prospector knew right away it was a bear attack and did his best to be submissive and played as dead as he could while being mauled. The worst of his injuries was a rake across the face which tore away both his eyelids but he managed to survive and spent several weeks in the hospital.
The doctors did all they could to mend his wounds but the eyelids could not be saved. Eventually one doctor came up with an idea and asked the miner if he had been circumcised to which he replied no. "Good enough" said the doctor, "we will rebuild your eyelids with your foreskin."
The surgery was delicate but the fellow healed up nicely... albeit a little cock-eyed.
