Why does it seem like all the weird stuff happens in Florida??
A man just shot himself while bowling in the Sunshine State. Why? Well, it was an accident — and people thought he had just accidentally bumped a firecracker in his pocket when he went to release the bowling ball!
Because, you know, in Florida people just carry around firecrackers in their pockets! LOLz!!
Here's what one witness said:
"The guy just stepped up to bowl. I think he hit his leg on his back swing."
He was carrying the revolver in the pocket of his shorts. Anyone who doesn't holster a gun properly — or takes a gun bowling, even — should NOT be allowed to carry a gun!
The injury was not life threatening, and cops haven't released the victim's name. Everyone in the bowling alley just kinda stared at him while he limped back to his seat!
