After 25 beers — maybe more, police say — a Springfield man fired a handgun from a vehicle, trying to hit a snake slithering across the street.

Why don't they have an offense called. "Just F@ckin' Stupid," with a penalty that the person is not allowed to breed.

"Hey, the gunsights were skewed, OK?"

Mikey, I thin this guy is at the next level up (or down), Too F@ckin' Stupid.

Rooster Cogburn Syndrome, they call it.

Having been the center of attention for drunks with guns on more than one occasion makes me realize that there are a lot of people out there who should not carry.
Some people can use all the inhibitions they can lay their grubby little hands on.

I also like the use of "allegedly" in the headline, as in "he allegedly fired the alleged gun and hit the alleged person."

BLater, as he was taken into custody, he began to see multiple snakes slithering and was placed in restraints for shooting them with his finger"

Now I'm all confused. He was sitting on the car door, firing at a snake -- a thing almost guaranteed to be down on the ground -- and two shots hit the car roof!?! And his friend in the head? That's a lot of muzzle flip.

Unless he was sitting on the top of the door, firing across the roof ... but then, how did he manage, in his condition, to avoid falling over backwards on his, ah, rump? Oh, man. Why don't they get courtroom artists to draw pictures of these events when they don't have photos?
