Excuse me will I sympathetically cringe and hold my own junk for a little bit.
From the article:
As Chandler residents Joshua Seto, 27, and his fiancée, Cara Christopher, walked over to a Fry’s Food Store for refreshments, he tried securing her pink handgun in the front waistband of his pants.
The gun fired, striking Seto’s penis and continuing through his left thigh. The bleeding started immediately and was heavy, according to police dispatch recordings released Sunday.
I have some questions, personally, but shooting your own penis pretty much tells me most of what I need to know already. How did this guy figure it was a good idea? I know, TV and Movies show people doing this all the time. Grab your gun, shove it in your waistband and keep on going right? Wrong. Here’s a little tip for anyone else thinking this might be the best way to carry your firearms. Cartoons aren’t real. The ACME Corporation doesn’t exist, and even if they did, you’ll have to wait more than 10 seconds for your rocket-propelled roller blades to show up before you can chase down the Roadrunner.
Oh, and the police have some really helpful advice for you so you can avoid shooting your penis.
Use a holster for your gun. Apparently your BVD’s aren’t adequate. That’s some good
police work right there. Makes me proud to live in South Carolina.
The reason they do this in TV and Movies is because, pay attention now, their guns aren’t real. Bruce Willis never actually stopped a terrorist attack, and Kevin James isn’t really a Mall Cop. I’m fairly certain that Robert DeNiro isn’t an ex-CIA agent who terrorizes his son in law with wacky hijinx either.
Anyhow, guns (especially PINK guns) and penises don’t mix. That’s my public service announcement for today.
