It's times like this that I cringe when I say I'm from Indiana. We don't always produce the best and brightest... Hey - let's just hope he's not part of our community, eh?

KOKOMO, Ind. -- Police said a man accidentally shot himself in the genitals as he robbed a convenience store early Tuesday morning.
The female clerk told police that a man came into the store with a semiautomatic handgun and demanded cash and cigarettes before handing her a white cloth bag.

The clerk said that as she retrieved the cigarettes she heard a gunshot and turned to confront the man, who yelled that he had shot himself.

Police said the man grabbed the bag full of cash and fled the store.

In-store surveillance cameras showed that the man... shot himself as he placed the gun into the waistband of his pants, police said.

Alright!! A nutjob not from Florida!! LOL...

The only good thing to come out of Kokomo is that 50's-style McDonald's they have there. You order McDonald's food from a phone at the table, and they have a full diner menu there!

That's where I went vegetarian - I had a McGriddle for the first time and it was the last time I ate meat. Go figure!

McGriddle's scare me.

Anything with the McDonald's emblem baked into it should not be trusted...

I just thought, "As much as other Hoosiers seem to be interested in what I do with my genitalia, but then they're shooting their own off!"

And I like McGriddles, actually. Especially when I'm not feeling vegetarian. *grins*

When would that be, Bil? When you're eating?

Wait. You mean McDonalds uses real meat? When did that start?

Leave it to a gay man to turn every conversation to one about "real meat".

Wait, did someone say "real meat"??

That's it, I'm getting back in this conversation ASAP...


Notice that the man demanded not only cash, but also "cigarettes".

Remember the old joke?:

MAN: Do you usually smoke after sex?

WOMAN: Why! ... Come to think of it ... I've never thought to look!
