And the jokes just write themselves

Ah, Michigan. Looks like you’re not just famous for ridiculous right-wing legislators anymore, but also for shit-stupid gun guys. Take, for instance, this poor bastard, who accidentally discovered irony while trying to compensate for his lack of endowments:

A Michigan man is recovering after shooting himself through the crotch while adjusting his .40-caliber Glock, reports The Detroit Free Press.

According to police in the Detroit suburb of Birmingham, it could have been worse.

“You think about it — your femoral artery runs down there,” Deputy Chief Mark Clemence said. “He could have shot it off. It could have been a lot worse. It’s a big bullet; you’re not talking a small bullet.”

* * *

But there still might be injury to add to the insult: though the man does have a permit to carry the gun, Clemence said local prosecutors will decide whether to charge the man with reckless discharge of a firearm.

Careless storage would also be an issue. Only a macho fucktard stuffs his loaded gun in the waist of his pants; it’s a sure tip-off that he hasn’t got much else in there. (Or in his brain pan, either.)

Meanwhile, the commentariat at Raw Story was full of “gone off half-cocked” jokes and nominations for the Darwin Award. Sadly, this guy’s only good for an honorable mention, since he lived to tell (or, as I suspect, keep a very painful secret.) Best comments:

Guess we’ll have to wait and see if any penis-related inanities come off the floor of the Michigan statehouse, eh?
