That was maybe the most difficult sentence I’ve ever written.
Yes, it was inevitable, what with all the patriots out there determined to flaunt their constitutional right to carry a gun, that some yahoo would eventually shoot himself … in … the … testicles.
Boy, that just doesn’t get any easier to write.
A man was walking through a department store Sunday in Seattle with his handgun in his waistband when the thing went off …
This is where we break for various mental images and jokes about things in pants going off, etc. Thank God I’m listening to loud music through headphones right now, or KISS’s “Love Gun” would be in my head for the rest of the day.
Oh, and he also shot himself in the foot but, really, who cares?
Because I’m pretty sure I’m a guy, I can sympathize with this poor schmuck. But other than the whole testicle thing, anyone who walks around with a loaded gun in public doesn’t deserve much sympathy. And I’m pretty sure that all these guys walking around with guns in public to make some sort of point (psych students: start your engines) aren’t all leaving them unloaded. Next time one of these idiots may accidentally shoot somebody’s kid. Then it won’t be funny anymore.
