I've heard about using a car engine to cook breakfast (in fact, that idea is immortalized in Rick Altergott's great artwork for WU -- see the side column), but this is the first time I've seen a gun used for the same purpose.
A moron in Pennsylvania shot a gun into his neighbor's house while trying to clear the chamber. He stated in court that firing the gun was the only way he knew to unload it. Some people should not be allowed out on their own!
No, its not a bar. Shooters is a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado that encourages patrons to bring their guns inside. In fact the waitresses are armed and the business hosts $75 conceal carry classes. I'd advise leaving a tip!
Shotgun shells loaded with plant seeds. Point, shoot, and watch your garden bloom! There's a Dick Cheney joke in here somewhere. Available from flowershells.com (though currently on backorder). [via HuffPost]
In 1955, Jockey Briefs ran an ad campaign featuring young boys shoving guns into their underwear. The image on the left is via vintageskivvies.com, who says that it ran in Woman's Home Companion; the one on the right is from eBay.
A 73 year old man teaching a conceal carry class in Ohio made the cardinal mistake when handling a firearm. He thought the gun was empty and dry fired it without checking. The bullet that was, of course, in the gun ricocheted off a metal desk and struck a man taking the class. Not a class to teach by negative example.
Paul once posted about a camera that looked like a gun. This does that one better. It's a camera AND a gun. Pull the trigger and it simultaneously takes a picture of and shoots a bullet at whomever you're aiming the gun at. It was created and used in the late 1930s in New York City. [via petapixel]
