Reason #47 why we wear pants as infrequently as humanly possible: this tragic story.
While in the comfort of his lovely home (above) on Sunday, William Rood took off his pants. We all do it, because it's a comfortable way to lounge around, but what happened next will absolutely blow your mind (and, spoiler alert, his chin)!
See, the 69-year-old Tennessean sometimes keeps a loaded gun in the right front pocket of his pantaloons and, well, you can probably see where this painful story is headed!
Will set his pants on a nearby dresser and, somehow, his pocket pistol went off! His Beretta accidentally discharged and sent a .25 caliber bullet straight through his own chin and into his neck!!!
OH NOES!!!! It's like a scene from American Pie, but with bullets instead of Jason Biggs' premature ejaculate!!!
The Carter County Sheriff's Department arrived to find a totally bloody scene, with the bullet still lodged in Will's neck.
Thankfully, the injured man was quickly transported via helicopter to a nearby hospital. Sources say he's in stable condition now and is resting up in the ICU!
Phew!! Just goes to show you, next time you take off your pants make sure you're careful where you aim that thing!
