SOUTHWORTH -- A man trying to loosen a stubborn lug nut blasted the wheel with a 12-gauge shotgun, injuring himself badly in both legs, Kitsap County sheriff's deputies said.

Hmm, not a very smart move. Hopefully he learned something from this... call a mechanic.

A 12-gauge to loosen a lug nut?


There's the problem right there!

Should have used a .410.

I thought when I read the title that the guy was probably using the barrel of the shotgun as a cheater bar or something.

But he was trying to SHOOT his lug nuts off?

Never thought of that one, he must have been in some hurry!

I wonder if this :w: had anything to do with it? I hope so, I'd hate to think the guy did this sober!

OMG what a dill! Too bad he didn't do himself in; he'd be a sure winner of the Darwin Award.

The guy lives in my county. The local newspaper allows comments. A guy with the pen name 'retrojeep' penned this missive. Original from the Kitsap Sun is here.



Come and listen to a story about a man named Fred
A poor mechaniceer, barely kept his Lincoln Fed
Then one day he was shootin at some nuts
And up through his jeans came a bubblin Guts!

Pain that is! Kelly Clarkson! Where's my leg!

Well the first thing you know ol Freds a Darwinaire
Kinfolk said "Fred move away from here!"
Said The brickyard is the place you oughta be!
So he loaded up his shells and moved to Indy!

500 that is! Shiney Wheels! Moooving targets!

Well now its time to say good by to Fred and all his quirks
And would like to thank you folks for all your kindly smurks
You're invited back again to this locality
Be sure to wear your kevlar shoes with hop-a-bility

Ya'll duck and cover, y'hear!
