Whatever about snotting yourself in public, but doing so with a gathered audience of tourists and other spectators has got to hurt.

This royal guard at Buckingham Palace had the unfortunate position of being in full view of everyone gathered to watch the famous Changing of the Guard when he slipped on a manhole cover and dropped his rifle as well as knocking his hat and, we imagine, getting a shiner on his arse. Not exactly the best day at the office.
