with four shots from his 12 calibre rifle.
12 caliber?

In any case I call bullshiat. The crows would have scattered after the first shot leaving him nothing to shoot the other 3 shots at.

No "France Surrenders"?

Ahh... haha...

I'll let myself out.
2002-10-03 05:55:55 PM  
Who surrenders?
2002-10-03 05:55:57 PM  
zee french, are, how do you say...not so good with zee guns, eh?
2002-10-03 05:56:02 PM  
Everytime you masturbate, a Frog kills a cow.

Please, think of the cows!
2002-10-03 05:56:56 PM  
So now the French are surrendering to themselves?
2002-10-03 05:58:32 PM  
Sounds like something someone in Texas would try. That's just a great article. Sent it to a friend earlier who's moving to France in a month. Frightened her more, I think.
2002-10-03 05:58:56 PM  
This wouldn't have been a problem if we let Germany keep France. I'm sure the surrender monkey wouldn't have a rifle then, or at the very least he would have been sent to the Eastern Front.

"The man, who had a valid hunter's permit..."

Not anymore, I would think.
2002-10-03 06:02:46 PM  
The link is farked already?
2002-10-03 06:03:11 PM  
I'm with Hogans. PEACE IN OUR TIME!

By the same logic, let's keep Saddam where he is.
2002-10-03 06:03:46 PM  
Too bad the cow didn't fall on the power lines. They could have had a BBQ right then and there.
2002-10-03 06:07:18 PM  
Zee French are zee gay.
2002-10-03 06:08:31 PM  
We used to shoot at transformers on power poles when we were kids. Good thing we weren't as good of shots as this fine frenchman or we might've actually hit them once in a while.

We used to shoot at transformers on telephone poles when we were kids. Good thing we weren't as <sarcasm> good of shots as this fine frenchman </sarcasm> or we might've actually hit them once in a while.

mmmmmmmmmmm barbecue

You can France if you want to.
You can leave your cares behind.

At least he had the courage (unlike the French Army in 1940) to actually pull the trigger.
2002-10-03 06:16:16 PM  
Site's farked?
2002-10-03 06:17:25 PM  
Site Farked.
Fark France and the French too.
2002-10-03 06:19:39 PM  
Hey Foaming, I think you're thinking of a 12 gauge. A 12 calibre is a little dinky gun. Can't read the stupid article anyway. Damn French...
2002-10-03 06:20:44 PM least he didn't blow his head off while teaching his kid gun safety.
2002-10-03 06:25:36 PM  
Close, BradRFS, a .12 caliber would be a dinky little gun, with a bore diameter of 0.12 inch. A 12 caliber would have a bore diameter of 12 inches. You might be able to find a 12 caliber gun on a WWII battlecruiser.
2002-10-03 06:26:00 PM  
That's an American gun...
2002-10-03 06:27:48 PM  
Farked Already.
2002-10-03 06:28:40 PM  
This headline so badly needs a "France surrenders"
2002-10-03 06:28:41 PM  
Can I take it that all the people who don't like France do so because they don't roll over like the Britts do every time the yanks whip it out of their pants?

Or do you really even know a french person?

Just curious.
2002-10-03 06:32:41 PM  
Maveno - when did this happen? I really hope an article about that gets posted.

Take it any way you like, LudovicoTechnique.

France, on the other hand, takes it sideways. With barbed wire.
2002-10-03 06:33:46 PM  
I know plenty of French people, grew up and lived in Michigan.
2002-10-03 06:34:55 PM  
Time for some fancy thinking here. What's with all the gun stuff?

I don't mean just the recent shootings, but the repeated articles etc.

Think about it.
2002-10-03 06:35:49 PM  

Smell bad, bad food, spineless, whiners, socialist peegs, backstabbers etc, etc ad infinitum. Ask anyone who lives in Europe Monsieur Asshat.
2002-10-03 06:39:38 PM  

Smell bad: Stop your crying, what are you? a dainty little flower?
bad food: Wrong
spinesless: Invented scuba diving, end of discussion.
Whiners: Not my experience.
Socialists: Less so than Germany.
backstabbers: eh?
2002-10-03 06:42:17 PM  
didn't read the article but it sounds like this guy is a wizard shot

isn't the purpose of a gun to destroy stuff?
2002-10-03 06:42:27 PM  
Ludovico, we don't like the French because they are a bunch of cheese eating surrender monkeys!

And you are a whiny little commie.

2002-10-03 06:42:41 PM  
The French who I know seem to fall into two categories:

1 Arogant, stupid, jerks/biatches.
2 People who can't stand France and the other people in it.

Imagine a whole country of gay Teamsters without the beer guts.
2002-10-03 06:43:09 PM  
2002-10-03 06:44:42 PM  

OK you get an exception with Jacques Cousteau, but the rest I stand by ;)

Also, there is no good French profanity. Merde? WTF.
2002-10-03 06:45:19 PM  
Bbcrackmonkey: You're are what zay call a bigot.

Eat me.
2002-10-03 06:46:19 PM  
Don't forget anti-semitic. They didn't just surrender because they couldn't fight. Most would have chosen Hitler over Jews.

Does that invoke Godwin's Law?
2002-10-03 06:46:56 PM  
Hytes thanks now I got that damn song stuck in my head.

I went and shot the maximum the game laws would allow
Two game wardens
Seven hunters
and a cow.

Severin: Mismsg?

Apparently he was trying to teach the cow about gun safety, when...
2002-10-03 07:05:22 PM  
Good Lord, no wonder they're always surrendering.
2002-10-03 07:05:23 PM  
Having lived in France, I met lots of a*holes.
They tended to sound a lot like some of the people on Fark except they hated Americans.
2002-10-03 07:10:07 PM  
The bovine community surrenders.
2002-10-03 07:13:30 PM  
So the French are udderly powerless ... am I on target?
2002-10-03 07:14:52 PM  
OT...I don't really want to post because I have no karma as far as that's concerned but has anybody seen the Sadam challenging Bush to a Duel story at

What's so amazingly tough about Scuba diving? Or are you just saying that it requires vertebrae?
