Tying One On

“I was trying to tie the gun around my leg.” That’s what an Orlando, Fla., teen told police after allegedly shooting himself in the testicles with a 9mm pistol. According to police, the unidentified teenager was lying in bed watching TV with his sister. Apparently, while trying to strap the gun to his leg, it went off, sending a bullet through his scrotum and into his upper thigh. His sister called 911 and he was taken by ambulance to the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies. (MS/Orlando Sentinel) ...Which is where they take teen boys after trying to be “real men.”
