I Will Not Eat My Pants

In November I issued a challenge to anyone who could produce an Evel Knievel injury chart that pre-dated mine, a graphic which I thought had been my own original idea. However, I've since found this 1970 graphic -- appearing 24 years before mine -- proving that my idea wasn't a stroke of genius after all. It's this print ad for Evel's June 1970 jump in Vancouver. Fortunately, since the person who called this to my attention was me, and since I can't force myself to do anything I don't want to do, I will not eat my pants.

Updated Knievel Injuries page.
