Ouch! - Random Trivia Questions

I stepped on someone's foot yesterday playing basketball, and all I can say is, "Ouch"! Even though it's my oft-injured bad ankle (having never sprained the other one), I seem to have survived mostly intact. But this week, I'm going to share the pain, as all of the answers below contain the string "ouch" somewhere.
