A Blast From The Past

A US man has injured himself in both legs after attempting to loosen a stiff wheel-nut by blasting it with his gun.
The 66-year-old man from Washington state was repairing his car outside his home when the accident took place.

Shooting at the wheel from arm’s length with his 12-gauge shotgun, he was peppered with buckshot and debris.

The man – who police say was on his own and not intoxicated – was taken to hospital with severe, but not life-threatening, injuries.

    Shoot (pun intended). If he had just given that lug nut a shot (heh) of PB Blaster (nyuk, nyuk) on day one it probably would have spun itself off the stud itself.

    Shoulda called AAA.

  6. That’s not “an accident” It’s a “stupidity” and I bet it hurt. Sorry Sir Darwin you’ll get the next one I’m sure.

    A judicious application of heat might have been more effective … but with this guy, he probably would’ve set fire to his car.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
