Definition of football bat
- a situation that's out of the ordinary.

You're as fucked up as a football bat if you think that tranny is a real woman, he has an Adam's Apple!
- A football bat is a tool made of a solid steel grip and a lead length that was used to strike railroad ties in the early 1800's. The lead's softer strike kept the tie from breaking when being driven into stone, as the ties were not tempered well and if driven with too much direct force could split, move out of alignment, or shatter, making it impossible to remove the damaged tie. The football bat would be rotated as the tie was struck, making the bat change shape with each hit. When the tie was almost fully flush, the football bat would be raised like a tamping iron, causing the lead to flatten down with each blow until it was rounded down again and ready for the next tie to be set. The football bat had a very misshapen end after a day's use, looking very much like a badly beaten ball on the end of a steel handle. The saying 'you look as fucked up as a football bat' came from the likeness of railway workers after a fight being beaten and covered with knots and bruises all over their heads, looking much like the knobby, misshapen tools they used. The football bat has long faded from history as better tools and methods came into use, but due to the amusing name it's now used as a way to insult someone who is making no sense, embodies an oxymoron like the tool's name, or is just considered strange. But at one time, there truly was a tool called a 'football bat'.
You got beaten so bad, your face is as fucked up as a football bat!
