Whoops, forgot about that one

A man in Maine died on Thanksgiving after being shot by his own booby trap at home, authorities said.

Ronald Cyr, 65, called 911 early Thursday evening, telling operators that he had been shot, the Van Buren Police Department said on Facebook.

Police and medics went to the scene and gave Cyr medical assistance. “Regretfully, Mr. Cyr succumbed to the injuries he sustained from the gunshot,” authorities said.

Officers learned that the front door of Cyr’s home was “outfitted with a device designed to fire a handgun should anyone attempt to enter the door.”

    He realized in the last few seconds of his life that the design of his booby trap would prevent any robbers from suing him.

    Well, at least he doesn’t have to worry about some burglar’s family suing him.

    There’s “stupid” and then there’s “fucking stupid”.
