Man Shoots Himself in Foot... Literally

When idiomatic expressions meet literal events, hilarity ensues.

According to the Lorain Morning Journal, a 25-year-old Elyria told police that he found a "big gun" on the ground and accidentally shot himself in the left foot with it.

Strange enough, right? Well, his explanation and the lack of corroborating evidence make everything doubly strange.


He said he picked it up and, not being familiar with handling a gun, shot himself in the left foot, the report stated. Sims then dropped the gun, limped to a friend’s house, whose address he didn’t know, and was given a ride to EMH Regional Medical Center by a person he did not know, according to the report. He refused to give any additional information. Officers checked the area where Sims said he shot himself, but could not find the gun, blood or a spent shell casing.

We think he's shooting himself in the foot with his lies.
