What if Flash lost a leg?

My friends and I was kind of 'debating' this the other day at work. (working at a newspaper place as a paperboy often brings up weird conversations thru boredom).
What if Flash lost a leg? Would it just cut his speed in half? Disable him from running at all? Or have no effect at all on him?
One legged Flash running. whats up? lol.

He would have to hop very fast, or walk on his hands really fast.

i think he would spin around like a tornado with his arms out.

He'd get addicted to pain medication and go into a major depression. Then somebody would make him an artificial leg and he would have his big comeback!

This would make a very interesting storyline.

How many of these strangely mean amuptee threads have sprung up today?   

I'm sure the writers would find some weird & wacky way to work around the loss of limb & enable him to move around.  After all, it's not just the Flash's legs that are connected to the Speed Force.

Well, I know he's good friends with Dr.Mid-Nite,Mr.Terrific,and Cyborg..i'm pretty sure they could just make him a new one.

Flash is fast, even in a wheelchair.

He would dress up as a rabbit and call himself The Hop.

Flashes have a healing factor Deathstroke shot Bart's knee cap clear off and it started healing back with ludicrous Flash like speed.

Flash can heal sure but not necessarily regenerate. That being said though I bet he'd find a way to make a leg out of the Speed Force or something. Would definitely secure his secret identity nobody would guess the guy missing a leg was the Flash.
