Harrison FordDid you hear about Harrison Ford's bad luck on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII yesterday? He was hurt while filming and ended up being helicoptered to Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital, which has a trauma unit that specializes in fractures. A police spokesman said, "We were called to Pinewood studios after reports of a 71-year-old man being injured by a garage door,” and a studio spokesman confirms Ford has "an ankle injury."

Now, I am ABSOLUTELY not snickering at the idea of poor aging Harrison Ford getting in a losing fight with what was apparently a hydraulic door (THE DOOR SHOT FIRST), because that would be incredibly rude. I am, however, snickering a little bit at the jokes that have been popping up on Twitter ever since the news of Ford's injury went public.

Here are some of the best social media reactions to Harrison's injury:

 

Ahahahahahahaahahaaaaa, oh dear. I feel like a jerk for laughing, but come on, I bet even Harrison Ford would crack up (HAR!) at some of those.

I'm sure Ford will recover quickly, given his top-notch studio-provided medical care. And hey, even at 71 ...
