Guns don't kill toilets, people kill toilets (in Utah)

Some events provide so much ammunition (so to speak) for ridicule that it seems wrong to blog about them somehow. Candy from a baby, that kind of thing. Nah.

This morning, some idiot in the restroom at a Carl's Jr. in Centerville let his concealed weapon drop out of his pants onto the floor. It discharged, blasting the toilet. The puns have been flowing fast and furious on the comment boards:

"Gives new meaning to being shot in the head."

"He can just tell his wife he was shooting the s***."

"Carl's Jr? That's probably not the first explosion that has occurred in that bathroom."
And even the headline: "No. 1 (and No. 2?) with a bullet: Man's pistol blasts toilet to pieces"

I just want to know the idiot's name. He deserves some kind of award named after him, like the "Could Have Killed Someone Award," or "Can't Keep It In My Pants Award," or something. By the way, is it legal to keep a bullet in the chamber? My Google project for the day.

P.S. Maybe it's a good thing this happened, even if it did cause a woman heart palpitations. Who knows what heightened awareness of Toilet Danger might prevent?

100% legal in Utah. For details, pick up Mitch Vilos' book titled Utah Gun Law (it's in its third edition).

I say the toilet had it coming!

Long have I loathed the filthiness of public restrooms, but I have not known how to adequately express my feelings on the matter . . . until now.

Bless that patriot for showing me light! Let his be the shot heard round the world. The war on poverty, the war on drugs, the war on terrorism? Let the war on toilets -- filthy stinking toilets -- begin!

With all that shrapnel flying around, it's a good thing he'd pulled his pants up!
