Jimmy Fallon's finger injury leads to a chipped tooth, according to Instagram photo

Jimmy Fallon has got to be the unluckiest multimillionaire on the planet.

While trying to open a jar of scar tissue repair gel in order to treat his recovering finger injury, the Tonight Show host managed to chip his front tooth. 

Fallon shared the above photo on his Instagram on Friday, adding the hashtag “#BestSummerEver.” Well, given that he recently signed a contract which guarantees him at least six more years as the host of The Tonight Show, there might be some reasons — six, at least — to not write this summer off entirely.

As he revealed on The Tonight Show, Fallon nearly lost his finger after tripping over a braided rug in his home. When he grabbed onto the counter to keep from falling, his ring had caught onto the edge, ripping his finger out of the socket. (It’s called “ring avulsion.” Don’t Google it.)
