Personally, I think it's just horrible, because such morbid imagery doesn't sit well with me.
HOWEVER, I had a similar incident, where I accidentally spilled a whole bunch of this really fucking powerful liquid adhesive on my hand. It got into the little creases and crevices. Know what happens to liquid adhesive when it dries? It gets as hard (and sharp) as glass.
My fingers were bleeding for the rest of that day, and I had to be sent to the medical ward. Shit was painful. But now I know!
