Jimmy Fallon Fell and Injured His Other Hand, Literally Can’t Catch a Break

If you've seen Jimmy Fallon at all the past several months, you may have noticed he has a bandage on his left hand. That's because, in June, he badly injured his finger during a fall. “But at least his right hand is okay,” you may be thinking. Welp, you can go ahead and stop thinking that, because over the weekend Jimmy's right hand was the victim of a second fall.

Jimmy was in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on Saturday being honored with the Elmer Award for Excellence in Humor by magazine the Harvard Lampoon. While celebrating with fans, he tripped and fell with a bottle of Jaegermeister in his hand. A fan captured the incident on video and posted it to Instagram (watch here), along with a “Jimmy Fallin” pun I totally should have included in my punny Halloween costumes post last week.

Here's what a source told People about the fall:

“It was all part of the celebration in the street and some random girl kneeled down in front of him abruptly as he was turning around and he tripped over her because he didn't see her.”

They add that “everything is totally fine,” although Jimmy still made a trip to Massachusetts General Hospital and was photographed with a bandage on his right hand. Yikes.

Although things look pretty extreme in that photo, Jimmy shared his own image on Instagram yesterday, and the damage looks a lot more minimal. “Nothing that a few band aids couldn't fix,” he wrote in the caption.

So what happens now? He only has two hands. But apparently he's really adept at ruining perfectly good ones, so maybe he'll manage to grow a third one and injure that one too. Or maybe he'll just hurt all the fingers that have yet to be affected. They're probably getting cold without any bandages to keep them warm. Gotta catch 'em all! Hey, maybe that can be a new game on The Tonight Show!
