It's a little funny Perhaps sardonic.
Certainly not the horrible mishap but the visual. Trauma doesn't scare me. Things like this happen daily. What I find offensive, inappropriate and horrific is that it was posted on the Internet. That is a tremendous violation of the persons privacy and something the surviving family must endure.We don't know the specifics but I surmise this is post-mortem and that the attending's were just going through the procedure till demise. Any time you perforate the renal glands and stomach, toxins will take ya. I'd have guessed the individual fell from a pole and onto a fencepost. It looks like they chain sawed the post rather than extricate it: at which point if I were still alive, I'd want to check out.
(I'm not a MD, But I play one on the net.)
Origins: The photograph referenced by the above text (which can be found on various sites around the web by searching on phrases such as "gentleman who lost control of his motorcycle") is evidently genuine, although the explanation that now accompanies it is possibly an invented one. This picture first began circulating in March 2004 under the title "Lesson Painfully Learned" and at that time bore no text to explain its putative origins; the motorcycle accident scenario quoted above did not begin to circulate with the photographs until many months later.
Back in 2004 an informant told us that the photograph originated in the trauma bay of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences' (UAMS) emergency room. According to this source, the patient shown in the photo crashed his truck through a fence, causing a large fence post to come through part of the truck's engine and firewall before catching on spring wire in the back of the front seat, impaling the driver in the process. The patient was reportedly treated in the operating room but died a few days later of infection. We have not been able to independently verify these details, however.
In early 2006, the photo was circulated with this as its accompanying text:
This is an actual emergency room photo of a fisherman who lost control of his high-speed bass boat in West Virginia.
Warden's believe that he was traveling at a speed of approximately 75 mph at the time of the accident. He was unable to negotiate a curve in the narrow waterway. Unfortunately for him, upon striking the shoreline and being ejected from the boat he landed back end first on an old fence post.
You can probably picture what happened next, but the attached picture really says it all. The good news is that after about 6 months, this man made a full recovery after suffering a shattered hip, broken leg, several broken ribs, internal injuries and soft tissue damage.
Doctors credited his recovery to the fact that the post lodged itself so tightly that there was little or no blood loss.
NOW THAT'S GOTTA HURT!!!!!!"

I wasn't directing my comments to you. Please don't think that. I was merely stating that this photo had been out on the net since 2004 and circumstanses leading up to the impailing were inconclusive.
Similarly here are some 911 calls that are on the net as factual info.
Real 911 Calls, "BELIEVE" it or not!!
Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What is your emergency?
Caller: I heard what sounded like gunshots coming from the brown house on
Dispatcher: Do you have an address?
Caller: No, I have on a blouse and slacks, why?
Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What is your emergency?
Caller: Someone broke into my house and took a bite out of my ham and
Dispatcher: Excuse me?
Caller: I made a ham and cheese sandwich and left it on the kitchen table
and when I came back from the bathroom, someone had taken a bite
out of it.
Dispatcher: Was anything else taken?
Caller:! No, but this has happened to me before and I'm sick and tired of
Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What is the nature of your emergency?
Caller: I'm trying to reach nine eleven but my phone doesn't have an
eleven on it.
Dispatcher: This is nine eleven.
Caller: I thought you just said it was nine-one-one
Dispatcher: Yes, ma'am nine-one-one and nine-eleven are the same thing.
Caller: Honey, I may be old, but I'm not stupid.
Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What's the nature of your emergency?
Caller: My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes
Dispatcher: Is this her first child?
Caller: No, you idiot! This is her husband!
And the winner is..........
Caller: Yeah, I'm having trouble breathing. I'm all out of breath.
Darn....I think I'm going to pass out.
Dispatcher: Sir, where are you calling from?
Caller: I'm at a pay phone. North and Foster.
Dispatcher: Sir, an ambulance is on the way. Are you an asthmatic?
Dispatcher: What were you doing before you started having trouble
Caller: Running from the Police

As long as we are all apologizing, I think my initial statement was a little juvenile:
This was a feeble attempt for a commercialization campaign by the Paper and Pulp Industry mimicking The Milk Commercial-....
i.e. Got Wood?
