On Monday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Kimmel turned up on stage with a wicked black eye and a bandage. The host chose to explain what happend with a dramatic re-enactment – taking some liberties with his own casting – and revealed that he gave it to himself.

But ever the sport, Kimmel turned his pain into a pretty amazing Paula Deen joke. Watch the clip above, then send Kimmel and his poor face some love on Twitter.
