French Hunter Shot in Buttocks By Own Gun

What is it with these people and dropping their weapons?

MARSEILLE, France, Dec 3 (AFP) - It was a case of the hunter being hunted when a 70-year-old French man stopped to relieve himself against a tree Friday and was shot in the backside by his own rifle.

Firefighters in southern France recounting the incident said the unidentified man leant his gun against a car and was shot when it fell to the ground and discharged.

Firemen said the bullet merely grazed his rump, adding that he had escaped serious injury by a centimetre or so.

In related news, a party of Parisian hunters reportedly surrendered to four rabbits who "seemed particularly bad-tempered." The hunters have agreed to install a puppet regime under the direct control of the rabbits, and have agreed to invest all of their money into publishing and distributing the hateful anti-human political manifesto Watership Down.

You know, the French have done a lot of stupid things in warfare. And they've always believed they could do these stupid things and succeed, because they were possessed of a superlative esprit de corps (a French term translating loosely as "ghost of a corpse," which seems just plain redundant to me, but then, maybe I just lack the proper Gallic nuance).

Not only do they not have a superlative corpse-ghost, they seem to have a pretty f'n' shoddy one. I'm not one to brag, and I'm not the world's best fighter, but seriously, I think I can personally kick the ass of the entire French Army.

Seriously. Set it up. I'm game.

Thanks for both tips to GregS.
