The funny thing about blogging is that occasionally the comments are as good as the articles. Here’s a comment from a reader named Scott who’s friend Shaun (who by Scott’s own proclamation shall remain nameless) demonstrates that the dangers of making a device like a potato gun go far beyond the obvious.

(disclaimer) Do not try this at home, this test was performed by a self perclaimed perfessional tater gun tester!!!!!

My buddy Shaun who shall remain nameless for the entirety of this article, being of what he calls, sound mind and body he! he! he!, decided to make him one of those there tator guns, over the objections of his wife, who stated, you’re gonna put your eye out with that thing, to which he declared “what idiot could get hurt with a tator gun.” So from that point hopefully you all know where I am headed here, if not don’t try makin’ a tater gun without reading the rest of this story!!!

So the nameless fellow, refer to beginning of story, put all of his parts and pieces together, and perclaimed himself a perfessional tater gun maker, then atter that, nameless buddy decided to christen said tater gun, and perclaim hisself the new king of tater gun testers, by sticking his face over the soon to be designated tater launch area, and light off the former grill igniter while the PVC glue aroma was still quite fresh.

So at the unexpected report of da tater gun, all or the majority of his former eyebrows, and eyelashes perclaim his gun a success as they rushed by him!!! So the moron of this story, oops I meant the moral is, don’t be a testin’, or a lookin’ into that thar tater gun until after the put togetter stuffs has thuroly dissipated!!!

One for the record books, so please pass this around to all of your friends, so’s we can give my nameless buddy Shaun all the credit he justly deserves =), so in the words of good ol Bill Engvall, “Heres your sign Shaun ol buddy”

Thanks for sharing, er, sharin’ Scott. I’m more than happy to do my part to spread the word.
