In the years before shitting out his ass on jackass, Dave England was a globetrotting snowboard journalist. He worked on Big Brother's red-headed step-child Blunt Magazine, but we often crossed streams in that close knit familial way. Like, this one time in Sweden (or one of those other Alpine regions akin to white skin, black metal, and colorful diacriticals), Dimitry encountered Dave at some extreme sports skate/snow clusterfuckfest. Or was it Darf he ran into? No, it had to have been Dave post-Darf, seeing as he's already sporting the black-and-blown-out eye that Darf had acquired the night before (I want to say this came courtesy of an Aussie Pappas brother whom Darf had annoyed to the point where it was finally necessary for them to let their fist go on an orbital walkabout).
This wouldn't be the first time Darf sustained a blow, of course; in fact, perhaps this very same year as the photo above, Rick Kosick took Darf's head to town on the floor of a hotel room during an ASR trade shitshow. Darf's reign of terror was finally put down in 2010 while filming for jackass 3—the full story of which can be seen in jackass 3.5—and never before had the words good-fucking-riddance meant so much to so many.
