PIC: You can almost feel this man’s pain after his mates forcibly slapped his back

Paul Moore


We all need a reassuring pat on the back on the back sometimes but there’s a fine line between comforting a friend and beating the living crap out of them. Ok, it’s a fairly big line that’s probably as long as the equator!

JOE reader Aneka Mary sent this snap into us and it’s almost impossible not to grimace in pain after seeing the very forceful slap that her friend received from his mates.

She tells us that “we’re currently in Vietnam on holiday & he decided to take his shirt off so his lovely friends gave him a good slap. He nearly puked!”.

This looks worse than sunburn. Take a look.
