    2 points on this story;
    1. I've often wondered how effective a cup of hot coffee in the face would be in distracting an armed attacker long enough to escape or employ a better weapon.
    2. It is possible for an aggressive unarmed person to take a gun away from an armed clueless person.

    Man Stops Carjacking With Hot Coffee
    Thursday, October 20, 2005
    BLUFFTON, S.C. - A would-be carjacker got quite a jolt when he picked the wrong car to try to steal, Jasper County deputies say. The suspect tapped the window of the car Wednesday morning with a gun and motioned the driver to get out, Chief Deputy Roy Hughes said.

    The driver of the car had just bought a cup of hot coffee. So he slammed his door into the carjacker's legs, threw the coffee on him possibly burning the suspect's neck and face, and wrestled him to the ground, Hughes said.

    A shot was fired during the scuffle, but no one was hurt. The driver managed to get the gun from the suspect and point it at him, Hughes said.

    The suspect ran into the wood behind the store, the chief deputy said.

    Deputies are looking for the would-be carjacker along with two people believed to be with him who drove off while the fight was going on, Hughes said.

    Did he have a license to carry that coffee? Did he keep it concealed?

    That's too funny. :D

    When the bad guys are holding your family hostage, offer to make a fresh pot of coffee; you know, to relieve the tension.
    Bring to a full boil, then add enough sugar to make it viscous enough to stick to exposed skin. Toss a cup of that into their face.

    A weapon without the willingness to use it is worthless.

    The will to fight, survive, and win, even without a standard weapon, can make all the difference.

    So what caliber is best for carrying a concealed beverage (ccb) ''Grande'' or ''Venti''?
    No one in their right mind would carry a "Tall".

    Funny, yet not so funny.

    I agree that it is entertaining inasmuch as no one was injured. PTL! However, I do believe too, that we should not be “celebrating” or encouraging people to take such risks. This BG was clearly a novice…probably a first-timer. For fact, he has learned. Now, sorer and wiser, the BG will NOT make this mistake again! To be certain, the BG WILL strike again. Stupid knows no limits and stupid has no common sense to stop before someone gets killed. This was a good read that I hope no one else tries to repeat.

    We need a coffee licensing and registration scheme immediately.

    I don't believe you folks are actually talking about using

    mixed instruments of defense. I'm a traditionalist....

    "I know what you're thinking....

    does he have a breve, or a latte?"

    "But, seeing as this is a 44 oz. AMERICANO...
    and will burn your eyeballs CLEAN out, you've got to ask yourself...

    "Do I feel lucky?"

    "Well, do ya....PUNK?!?"

    I wouldn't mocha big deal out of it, but I'm sure the BG's lawyer will see sufficient grounds for a lawsuit.

    If you don't have coffee, how about a nice hot steaming cup of Earl Grey, or perhaps English Breafast Tea? ***

    ***Warning...do not use EBT after 10:00AM. "Miss Manners" will slap you around for that social gaffe, after Art's Grammaw wails on you for making the BG use "Such Language! Oh, my!"


    :D :evil: :D :evil: :D

    You guys beat me to all the good puns....

    That is fantastic. Assault cappucino.

    Maybe the brady bunch is right - all we need is 911 and a thermos in our hands at all times.

    Bravo! Well done. There's a man I'd like to have at my side in a scuffle.

    I disagree entirely. More people need to fight back, and more people need to arm themselves. Let the criminals live in fear.

    Does Chuckie Schumer know about this? Pretty soon it'll be illegal to transport hot coffee across state lines..........
    :rolleyes: :D
