A billion lire is equivalant to $460,000? Wow..the lire is much stronger than I thought.

Even funnier when I submitted it as 'Insurance scam involving fake chainsaw mutilation goes horribly wrong. Duh, didn't see that coming.'

I work for lawyers who defend insurance companys, they are sharks, be careful what you tell your doctor, and never stair at the lawyer in the eye

I wouldn't take $46 MILLION in exchange for my leg.

Anyway, if that was a real murder, that would be a GREAT cover-up.

I can see the concept... but a freakin' CHAINSAW???

well, uhhhh, I drove my uhhh, 1977 Kamaro into a ,uhhhhh, brick wall at ,uhhh, 85 mph ,so I could collect my, uhhhh, life insurance policy, but then, uhhhh, I realized I'd be, uhhh, dead. That sucks ,uhhh, like so bad dude!

Good god! The guy with the saw could have at least helped his friend bandage his leg before leaving. I'd say there's a little more to this than just an insurance scam.

Maybe the culprit was the famous Far Side dog, Zeke, who used to sleep with a chainsaw. As in, "Careful, if you wake up old Zeke, he's liable to fire that sucker up!"

Remeber when Angel got the saw in the shower? Hint: Scar
