One too many glasses of wine and a lack of coordination landed Ellen DeGeneres in the ER


Some may find it difficult to laugh at themselves, but that's certainly not the case for Ellen DeGeneres who comically recalled her recent trip to the emergency room last weekend after one too many glasses of wine.

In her Tuesday episode, DeGeneres waved around her splinted finger, detailing the events that led to its dislocation, E! News reported.

"So, you know how in gymnastics when you do a one-handed cartwheel and you have to spread the weight evenly between all your fingers? Well, I had two glasses of wine and fell into a door," DeGeneres said.

She said she was just at the front door when she caught the lip of the toe step, propelling her into the door and smashing her finger. 

She previewed the story with an image of an x-ray.

DeGeneres continued describing her hospital escapade, "I dislocated my finger. That's what they call it, which is an incorrect term because I knew where it was located. It was just wrongly located is what it was. So, do you know what they do when you dislocate your finger? It's very technical. What they do is they take the part that's dislocated and then they just snap it right back into place. Yeah, you can see why they have to go to eight years of medical school."

By visiting the hospital, DeGeneres was able to put some smiles on the faces of those in pain. She detailed one instance in which she was about to leave the hospital when a couple asked for a selfie.

She said, "They came up to me and he was like, 'Can we get a selfie with you?' I was like, 'Yeah, sure.' It's like 12:30 now. So, he and his girlfriend are sitting there getting a selfie and he says, 'I hope you're going to be OK.'"
