Hold My Beer
A US man has injured himself in both legs after attempting to loosen a stiff wheel-nut by blasting it with his gun. ... Shooting at the wheel from arm's length with his 12-gauge shotgun, he was peppered with buckshot and debris. ...
Frustrated by the one remaining nut which refused to budge, he resorted to fire power in an effort to shift it. "He's bound and determined to get that lug nut off," said Deputy Scott Wilson, a spokesman from the sheriff's office.
Me, I just stand on the tire wrench and jump up and down on it. The shotgun story is only slightly less bizzare than this story about department store Santas in Australia being banned from saying "Ho, Ho, Ho" because it might be derogatory to women. (Hat tip: Instapundit)
There'll be no ho, ho, ho this Christmas. Aspiring Santas have been told not to use the term "ho" because it could be seen as derogatory to women.
Thirty trainees at a Santa course in Adelaide last month, held by recruitment company Westaff, were urged to replace the traditional festive greeting with "ha, ha, ha".
A Santa veteran of 11 years who attended the course told the Sunday Mail the trainer was very clear in spelling out no to "ho".
Two Santa hopefuls reportedly left the course after the trainer's edict.
