    Church key clearly is US slang that hasn’t made it to the UK. We have the type of opener in the first picture, but there’s no slang name I know of!

    OMG! And a broken femur is nothing to laugh at either.

    He had fallen in the spring and broke his hip, so the surgeon did a hip replacement, both ball and joint portion.
    This time when he went down he landed on the same hip. The titanium replacement won't give, so the force against the shaft inside the bone blew the femur apart. He has cable ties and hose clamps holding it all together, plus a longer prosthesis to go farther down the leg.
    A complete mess..is still in rehab, probably another month or so.
    He says this is much worse than the hip replace. Excruciating pain in that leg.

    That sounds like an ordeal. Something similar happened to my father. He had the hip replacement and recovered quickly. Then a few months later, he was reaching for something in a cabinet, pivoted, and lost his balance. The second surgery and recovery were much more difficult. I hope he feels better soon.
