A rare non-fatal Darwin Award. Nobody dies!
In a suburban ER, the first patient of the evening was a young man suffering
from a gunshot wound. His story? "I was at a party and went outside to take
a piss. Somebody did a drive-by and shot me." I examined him and found a
small-calber entry wound at the anterior base of his penis, out the
mid-shaft, in and out the right testicle, and into the right thigh, where
the bullet lodged.
A highly improbable trajectory for a drive-by.
The nurse picked up his white jeans, which had been cut off and thrown
aside. Inside the waistband were unmistakeable powder burns. She said to
him, "You had a gun down your pants!"
At first 'Billy the Kid' denied it, but finally admitted to shooting
himself while playing quick-draw with a friend. The reason for the attempted
deception? He was on parole for a weapons violation.
The nature of the injury effectively removed him fron the gene pool.
