Jimmy Fallon Almost Lost His Finger In The Most GRAPHIC Way Possible [VIDEO].

NEW YORK (AP) — “Tonight” show host Jimmy Fallon spent 10 days in a hospital intensive care unit after tripping in his kitchen and injuring a finger so badly it required six hours of microsurgery to save. Following a gruesome finger injury and a brief summer vacation, Jimmy Fallon returned to The Tonight Show Monday with Paul Rudd and a new drinking game called Drinko.Jimmy Fallon canceled his TV show because of a mysterious hand injury, and on Monday the late night host finally explained how he almost had his finger amputated.

The comic was back at work Monday for the first time following the June 26 accident in his New York home, wearing a cast on his left hand that extended nearly to the fingernail of his ring finger. In addition to the smorgasbord of liquids both delicious and repulsive, The Tonight Show’s Drinko was also presented as a perverted machine that continually asks Fallon and Rudd to “mount me.” (Rudd compares Drinko’s voice to 2-XL.) Rudd drops his disc into Drinko first, forcing Fallon to imbibe peppermint schnapps. Thinking he had broken his finger, Fallon went to the Beth Israel Hospital emergency room, where he learned he actually had a condition called “ring avulsion.” Fallon went to Bellevue Hospital to have 6-hour surgery on his hand by a doctor who specialized in micro-surgery.

However, Rudd gets revenge in the final round when – after Rudd’s Drinko disc beats Fallon’s in a race to the bottom of the machine – Fallon is stuck drinking a cocktail of tequila and gravy. “This is the last time we’re playing Drinko, ladies and gentlemen,” Fallon tells the audience after consuming his “tequila gravy.” Rudd also sat down with Fallon to discuss Ant-Man as well as working with Michael Douglas, who enters the Marvel Cinematic Universe as inventor Hank Pym. “As great as he is, I could never shake the fact that I was working with Michael Douglas. He said the time spent recovering in the hospital made him realize that “this is the meaning of my life: I belong on TV,” he said to cheers from the audience. In an attempt to be more like himself around the legendary actor, Rudd decided to have some fun with Douglas. “I thought, I’m gonna Basic Instinct him,” a nod to Sharon Stone’s revealing interrogation scene.

It did not go well: In his return episode, Fallon was still sporting the bandages from his disgusting hand injury, which the host went into more detail about early in the episode. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.
