    When I was a kid we had hand held potato guns, you would stick the end of the gun into a potato twist then turn the gun, a pellet of potato remained in the gun, which you promptly shot at a friend.

    mmm. I believe the liberal insisted that these guns be made illegal and they were successful..:dunno:


    Liberals....DEDICATED TO RUINING ALL THE FUN.
    ...:lol:

    Potato Guns Threaten Life and Limb -- And They're Really Cool
    By Dave Barry

    Copied from Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph
    Sunday, September 11, 1994

    (NOTE FROM THE LEGAL DEPARTMENT: The activities described in this column are dangerous and stupid and possibly illegal and should be performed only by trained humor professionals who are good at sneaking around. This newspaper assumes no responsibility or liability for any injuries, deaths, maimings, cripplings, eyes getting poked out, pregnancies, fires, riots, ointments or suppositories that may or may not occur as a result of some moron attempting any of these activities or any other actions, forfeitures, debentures, indemnifications, and such other big scary legal words as we may or may not think up at some future point in time. Thank you.)

    For more than a year now, alert readers have been sending me alarming newspaper articles about the "potato gun," a bazooka-sized device that can shoot a potato several hundred yards at speeds up to 1,000 feet per second. To give you an idea how fast that is, an ordinary potato, on its own, will rarely travel more than four feet per day, even during the height of mating season.

    Potato guns -- which have already been banned in some municipalities -- can be easily made from plastic pipe available in any plumbing supply store; the explosive force comes from ordinary hair spray, which is ignited by an electrical spark. Needless to say I will not provide any specific details concerning how to construct these devices, because a great many young people read this column, and they already know how to construct these devices.

    Anyway, I recently got a fax from an individual whom I will identify here only as "Buzz Fleischman, 810 Pinecrest Drive, Miami Springs, Fla. 33166, telephone (305) 885-4817." Buzz, who makes his living performing humor at corporate meetings and other functions, and who by the way currently has some openings on his calendar, informed me that he had constructed a potato gun, and was willing to demonstrate it for the purpose of helping me, as a responsible adult, better understand just how alarming this menace is.

    I've stated before to the anti gun nuts, that I could make a potatoe gun in minutes at the home depot.

    If only I'd had a fried potato gun as a child, when my mom made MOUNTAINS of them for every single meal.
