The "Parks and Recreation" star posted an Instagram pic of his knee getting stitched up and captioned the not-for-the-squeamish photo, "My day so far. I will live. #SurfStitches."

He also tweeted the following TMI sentence:

Fortunately, the actor followed up with a photo of his impressive toned body (and a really bloody knee to boot).

Stay safe, Rob!
