This is too funny.

Clayton’s Eldrin Bell injured:

BUTTS COUNTY, Ga. — Clayton County Commission Chairman Eldrin Bell injured his hand while firing a gun during a party thrown by a strip club owner.

Bell was at an annual event Saturday at the home of Jack Galardi, who owns about a dozen strip clubs, including five in metro Atlanta. One of the clubs is in Clayton County.

An attorney for Galardi said Bell hurt himself while firing a gun at Galardi’s firing range and called it a “slight injury.”

    Oh, come on, this is too easy. What did we learn from this?

    1. A burning sensation might occur after contact with strippers…

    2. After firing off a couple of the rounds with strippers, the barrel does tend to heat up…

    3. Older gentlemen should take more precautions when handling their weapons with less frequency…

    You got to wonder if anyone made a “premature detonation” or a “soft trigger” joke after it happened…

    let’s be fair, who among us has not injured himself shooting off a gun at some strip club owners home during some sort of shindig??? just b/c it’s bell does not make it more funny…

    The funny part to me is that Bell used to be the police chief. Shouldn’t he be well-trained in the handling of a firearm?

  4. DoubleDawg3 says:

    Good clarification there jsm – b/c as we all know, if you’re ANYTHING to do with the City of Atlanta, there is no way that you’re “well-trained”.

    Well, if you folks will recall, it was Bob “I’m With The NRA” Barr who, in 2002, grabbed a Luger out of his host’s hands and pulled the trigger without first checking to see if the chamber was empty, thus firing one round into an oncoming basement door. Rumors have it the door was quickly replaced with a newer and shinier one.

  6. Romegaguy says:

    Bill that door had it coming!

    Does anybody think that Little Man Hill is upset he wasnt invited and thus the reason he is investigating this?

  7. Left of Center says:

    Didn’t Eldrin ever learn that he should stay away from those “Invitation Only” social events? He gets ‘burned’ every time!

    When I first heard this story, I didn’t stop snickering for 10 solid minutes.

    I’d dare Eldrin to fire off another shot with the 50 cal if I thought he’d be stupid enough to do it again.

    I needn’t mention he’s a terrible liar when he’s getting grilled on TV–at least he stands his ground and answers the questions instead of running like a coward.
