It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye....

...then it's just fun?

The National Blow-Dart Association is in for some serious bad press now. Where's Heston when you need him?

very creative!

Has anybody read A Primate's Memoir? (great, fun book)

Dr. Sapolsky off the hook, This Time, but when the baboons get their Kevlar vests, he's finished.

His planned defense on appeal?

I shot the sheriff
But I did not shoot the deputy.
I shot the sheriff
But I did not shoot the deputy-eee.
Oh, no.
Sheriff John Brown always hated me.
For what, I don't know.
Every time I plant a seed.
He says "killl it before it grow."
"Kill it before it grow-oh."

/I got nuthin'

" Deputy Wayne Lake was hit with a 4-inch dart - launched from a 3-foot blowgun..." "...The blowgun was an aluminum tube about 3-feet long,"

Yay for redundancy!

Guess he "blew" off the cop after all..
2003-03-26 12:12:38 AM  
If blowguns are outlawed only outlaws will have blowguns.

I give him an A for E for effort....but...E....A for......Appluase...Effort....Q..

Whoop! Dart in your neck!
2003-03-26 12:21:27 AM  
if the dart isn't in a spot that can instantly kill you, if it's dirty it can cause a nasty life threatening infection.

Apparently he was really an exchange student named Ngdoo

The question is how did he get caught...I woulda ran like a mf if I shot a cop with a blow-dart gun....I mean its not like anyone would hear it and look around....of course I would also brag about it to all my buddies, and one of them would probably call crime-stoppers on me for the 25$ reward so they could get a half-gram of blow or something....

Facisto Damn it I was going to say that. "Stormy float your ass over here and bend this wrench."

My sister was bitten by a moose once. Moose bites can be quite nasty.

How in the cathair was this dude strolling around with a freaking three foot long aluminum blowgun with nobody noticing. It wasn't precisely Officer Aware of his surroundings on this beat was it?
2003-03-26 12:29:54 AM  
?? I mean really, was the cop trying to arrest Chaka Zulu ? Man things have not been the same in Detroit since you guys spawned Emineminem on the world.

(Still pissed that he won an Oscar...A FARKIN' OSCAR ! Wished Michael Moore had kicked his ficticious arse)

First thing that came to mind:
Kramer: "We're missing the Death Blow!"

Oh so topical.

EatHam - Please go stand in the corner for screwing up that quote. You can come back in here and play when you have learned your lesson.

I got one of those I got at a flea market a long time ago.. they are DEADLY .. I thought it was more for fun.. but I've put the metal tip 3inches into a tree from like 30 yards. They are NASTY.. I don't mess around with it anymore

Never point a blow gun at a person unless you intend to kill them. If you intend to kill them, at least have the sense to rub the dart on a poison dart frog first.

why was this amusing??
2003-03-26 06:48:02 AM  
i've participated in numerous spitball attacks. no jail time yet!

Maybe he had the blowgun disguised as a cane or a really big hairpin. Anyways, when I was in the USAF we manned a high profile bomb dump and them damn pigeons would make a mess of our pretty structures. We did have a BB gun just for these skyrats but when there was a change of command in the Securite Police squadron our letter that permitted our use of it was lost. In the meantime we smuggled in a blowgun, man o man it did not kill the birds but I will have to say it was both fun and dangerous two things that young servicemen cant live without.

"Deputy Wayne Lake was hit with a 4-inch dart - launched from a 3-foot blowgun - during a traffic stop here early Jan. 5. The dart lodged in his bullet-resistant vest inches from his throat."

Yeah - amusing

We're eye to eye on that... now we have Arctic Cats that we can whip across the flight line with. The trick is to make it through Controlled Areas without getting caught...

It's dumbasses like the blow gun kid that end the fun for all of us. When did society stop kicking the shet out of kids when they do the wrong thing? I don't think counceling and "time-out" works. Well, hopefully this kid gets put in Pound-Me-In-The-Ass Prison.
2003-03-26 12:54:12 PM  
now sentenced to blow Bubba for a few years.

Canberraknight72, jeebus! You made me laugh so hard I had tears in my eyes.
