  • If you find yourself in Texas, don't shoot any armadillos

    As reported in this news article:

    An East Texas man was wounded after he fired a gun at an armadillo in his yard and the bullet ricocheted back to hit him in his face, the county sheriff said on Friday.

    Cass County Sheriff Larry Rowe said the man, who was not identified, went outside his home in Marietta, southwest of Texarkana, at around 3 a.m. on Thursday morning. He spotted the armadillo on his property and opened fire.

    "His wife was in the house. He went outside and took his .38 revolver and shot three times at the armadillo," Rowe said.

    The animal's hard shell deflected at least one of three bullets, which then struck the man's jaw, he said.

    The man was airlifted to a nearby hospital, where his jaw was wired shut, according to Rowe.

    The status of the animal is unknown.

    "We didn't find the armadillo," the sheriff said.


    As someone who's had his jaws wired shut, I sympathize with this man and what he's going through. But that said,



    "We didn't find the armadillo," the sheriff said.

    This is one of the most Texas things ever.

    It wasn't a ricochet. That'll teach him to shoot at Slowpoke Rodriguez...

        The sheriff knew what everybody wanted to know.
        "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

          "East Texas" isn't really Texas. They talk funny up there.
          The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

              Just wanna quash any rumors before they start about it actually being one of my Ninja Squirrel Assassins in one of their clever disguises using his shinobigatana (a.k.a. ninjatō) to deflect the bullet back at him in a display of mad ninja skills. That. Is. Not. What. Happened.

                    "Chichi" is not a squirrel name

                    Chiskwiquikiki is a squirrel name. In fact there are two of them in the NSA. As well as a Chikkquikiki.

                    You should stop pretending.

                        Of course it isn't. But it is the short form of Chikklikchikiki, which you would know if your squirrel wasn't still at the third grade level. Talk about pretending...

                          The short form of Chikklikchikiki is Chikkli not Chichi. You are only embarrassing yourself.
