Dept. Of Righteous Shootings

It’s not often that we get to applaud a self-administered  Righteous Shooting, but this one deserves special mention as it happened in Britishland.  Try not to burst out with raucous and joyful laughter as you follow the link, lest you frighten the other people at the office.  Here’s a brief synopsis:

Choirboy wants to do a little impromptu (or maybe planned, see below) property redistribution by breaking into a parked car.  Holding a shotgun, he smashes the butt thereof into the car window.

Thus far, all is happening as per usual in these cases.  Here’s where it gets (wonderfully) different.

Perhaps being unaware of the maxim, “Keep the booger-hook off the bang-switch”, said choirboy has finger on the trigger, and when the shotgun’s butt hits the window, he pulls the trigger, blasting a full load of buckshot(?) into his own fool chest, and dying on the spot.

[pause to allow the laughter and cheering to subside]

But it gets better.

There is surveillance video (see the link) which shows the other  members of the choir seeing what happened, holding him, trying to revive him, and generally wailing with shock and horror before running away.

Now  you can howl with laughter, with my permission.  And if this tragic tale doesn’t help you start the week with a smile on your face, you need help.


  1. It must have been a very short sawed-off shotgun, because I can’t, for the life of me, figure out how to do this with anything resembling a normal one.

  2. The real tragedy is what will happen next, this being Englandland and all. One of 2 possibilities:
    1. The friends and family of the dead choir boy will find out who owned the car, and…
    a. sue the crap out of them, OR
    b. beat the crap out of them
    2. The Crown Prosecution Service will find out who owned the car, and have them arrested and tried for negligent homicide or manslaughter.

  3. But…but…how could this happen? Isn’t Britishland a shining model and example of how disarming the law abiding makes it impossible to have criminal use of firearms?
    I’m shocked. Shocked, I say!

  4. An “Own Goal” righteous shooting. And in (f)GB. A Righteous Shooting hat trick! Or a Threepeat if your metaphors run more towards Basketball.
    If only all the Goblins could do this.
