    I wanted to at least leave the illusion that maybe I wasn't THAT depraved.

    Oh well, my friends know me better... :D

    He's probably done the British gene pool a favor—er, make that "favour."

    Maybe he could become a jester in the Queen's court. Weren't they eunuchs?

    Man jailed after shooting his testicles

    Need I say more?

    LONDON (Reuters) - A British man who accidentally shot himself in the testicles after drinking 15 pints of beer has been jailed for five years for possessing an illegal firearm, a court spokesman says.

    David Walker, 28, was arguing with a friend at a pub in South Yorkshire when he went home to get his sawn-off shotgun, which he jammed into his trousers.

    But as he walked back to the pub, the gun went off, blasting pellets into his testicles. Doctors later removed what remained of his testicles during emergency surgery.

    Walker admitted possessing a prohibited weapon at a hearing in June at the court in Sheffield.

    15 PINTS!!!

    Is that not almost a gallon? (I still think in metric for weights and volumes) Why was the dude even walking around at that point? Unless English beer is really weak, or their pints are very small.

    But I guess Darwin has his way with the fellow, since he'll not be passing his genes on to posterity after this. :D I do hope he'd not reproduced before this 'tragic' accident.

    This should serve as an example of the way to NOT store one's sawed-off shotgun. Get a case, box or something. Stuffing it down one's trousers is just asking for trouble.

    Now, if we could only teach the French that this is a "cool" way to carry a gun...;)

    I used to carry a Rossi .38 in crossdraw sometimes, and I was always a little peckish about this sort of thing happening. A 12-gauge...yow. With two major arteries in that region, he's fortunate to be alive.

    LONDON (Reuters) - A British man who accidentally shot himself in the testicles after drinking 15 pints of beer was jailed for five years on Tuesday for possessing an illegal firearm, a court spokesman said.



    David Walker, 28, was arguing with a friend at a pub in South Yorkshire, northern England, when he went home to get his sawed-off shotgun, which he jammed into his trousers.


    But as he walked back to the pub, the gun went off, blasting pellets into his testicles. Doctors later removed what remained of his testicles during emergency surgery.

    Think of this as an improvement to the gene pool.

    Ouch!


    In further news today London has decided to close all pubs , the sale of, or distribution of ale by the pint.

    Reasons cited :

    Incidents such as those of Mr. Walker , could be prevented . If there were no pubs, no ale, and nobody to argue with, this unfortunate incident would have never happend.

    This ruling is patterned after the Gun Laws currently being implemented in the UK with excellent results.

    The situation was probably made even worse by the injured party's nearly constant need to eliminate the 15 pints ........and the adjoining equipment required for that activity.

    No, the way I read it, he was jailed for having an illegal shotgun in Britain.

    Sending his ghoolies far and away was simply a stupidity bonus.

    He's going to be very popular in the big house.

    What a gold mine.

    Lessee here.

    1. Britain has removed firearms from the public to prevent murder. Mr. Walker is pioneering a similar approach to preventing rape.

    2. Ingredients:

    1 Loaded sawed off illegal shotgun
    1 pair of trousers
    15 pints of beer

    Drink beer
    Shove shotgun in trousers
    Walk back to pub

    Recipe for shredded nuts--makes one serving.

    3. What has 15 pints of beer, one sawed off shotgun and two nuts?
    NOT David Walker.

    Course - the real question is how did he get said shotgun - aren't they all banned?

    <sorry - couldn't resist when gun control laws are working so well for the law abiding citizens =( >

    J/Tharg!
