A dog named Dick

“Dog bites man” is no news story, but “dog shoots man” is worthy of coverage:

A 46-year-old Brigham City man and a friend were duck hunting Sunday about 8:30 a.m. on the north end of the Great Salt Lake near the bird refuge, about 10 miles west of Brigham City. The two had their canoe-like boat in a shallow marsh area when the man got out of the boat to either set up or collect decoys. He laid his 12-gauge shotgun across the bow of the boat, said Box Elder County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Kevin Potter.

After the man got out of the boat, a dog inside the vessel jumped up on the bow and stepped on the gun. The gun fired and shot the man in the buttocks. Medical crews later removed 27 pellets of birdshot.

The men called 911 and walked to the main road to wait for emergency crews. The fact the man was wearing waders likely helped prevent a more serious injury, Potter said. The gun was fired from approximately 10 feet away, he said. Potter did not have information on the type of dog that stepped on the shotgun.

My guess is that the dog is a “Cheney Retriever.” At least it didn’t shoot its master in the face.

Dumb like me

GOP flame-out Rick Perry launches a Christine O’Donnell-like ad strategy designed to convince voters that he’s not a witch a slick debater but rather a regular paint chip-snacker just like the base:

I don’t think it will work. Sure, Perry is dumber than a coffee can of recycled Brillo pads, but if the Stupid-American community is seeking substantive representation in the wake of Sarah Palin’s demurral, they’ll go for the aggressive moronitude of Michele Bachmann, who announced this week that a Bachmann Administration would shutter the US Embassy in Iran. Truly we are living in the Golden Age of Stupid.
