Potato Fatality

Here's one for the bizarro files:

Western Iowa Man Killed After Potato Gun Explosion

Now don't go and throw away your potato gun. Potato guns are safe when you use potatos. Hence the name.

It's hardly rocket science... but this 21-year-old stuffed a potato gun with explosive powder and ignited it. The gun erupted and killed him.

Weird, huh?

Sounds like the guy watched too many Beavis and Butthead shows.

He'd make a great candidate for a Darwin Award.

we have a couple of thost things. Send the boys out back with a spud and their gun... lots of fun. Of course, this is the kind of thing that they'll say - god, do you remember when we were little and you made us play with potatoes?

bw: It's all fun and games until someone gets shot in the eye with a puny potato projectile!

shover: He wasn't thinking about the basics of gunpowder.

It seems it really IS rocket science for some people.

nanc: He's lucky he's not called ghost.

brooke: Sometimes it seems as though the cretins outnumber the clever.
