I'm not sure I even want to know what the article is about since it can't possibly live up to whatever scenarios I've already created based on the headline...

TFA said he pointed a shotgun but the picture showed an assault rifle.

I'll take a Conn 20-J, satin silver with a gold bell. Oh, and will you toss in a stand and a wheeled case?

Ooooooo, I snickered pretty good at that one once I RTFA, subby. It doesn't hurt that I just tried a jicama. I'm not sure I'd call it an apple/pear flavor, more like a faint apple/peapod.

Five tubers were walking down ze Strasse. And zen zey were assaulted.

That was the world's unfunniest joke. I apologize if anybody dies not laughing.
