An index of what ticks off the Incredible Hulk

s20022.jpg OK, technically it's a list of everything that pisses off David Banner, thereby causing him to become the Hulk in the 1978-82 TV series. But I don't like to split hairs. Neither does the Hulk.

The list itself is revelatory.For example, I had no idea hand injuries were the cause of so many hulkifications. From punching glass, handcuff-related mishaps, coffee spills and inadvertent rockslides, Banners appendages got the $&#* kicked out of them. I was also struck by the variety. Hulk inducing episodes range from the mundane:

20.  Dealing with a pesky operator in a phone booth ("I DON'T HAVE TWENTY-FIVE CENTS!!!").

To the fantastic:

51.  Having Thor the Thunder God push him around.

To the vaguely homoerotic:

29.  Having two mean football players snap wet towels at him and shove him into the steam room which they have turned on to full blast.

And the strangely high-concept:

19.  Being pushed down a mountainside by a bigfoot impersonator.

But this one has to be my all-time favourite:

36.  Somehow running into a bear trap.

Genius! Kudos to Kevin Koster for compiling the list, and Kenneth Johnson (creator of the Hulk TV show) for posting it. Via Metafilter.
