Shoot my lawnmower that is. :-)


MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee man was accused of shooting his lawn mower because it wouldn't start. Keith Walendowski, 56, was charged with felony possession of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle and misdemeanor disorderly conduct while armed.


According to the criminal complaint, Walendowski said he was angry because his Lawn Boy wouldn't start Wednesday morning. He told police quote, "I can do that, it's my lawn mower and my yard so I can shoot it if I want."

A woman who lives at Walendowski's house reported the incident. She said he was intoxicated.

Walendowski could face up to an $11,000 fine and six years and three months in prison if convicted.

A call to Walendowski's home went unanswered Friday morning

So it's all about the hair? When I first read the article, it seemed that it might have something to do with shooting a lwanmower with a non-regulation lawnmower shooting weapon :-) from the article: "of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle"

Then, after reflection I thought perhaps it was because he was drunk, again from the article: "She said he was intoxicated." I've seen some folks drunk and honestly, some do things like shoot lawnmowers, no ALL of them do things like shoot lawnmowers. :-) It's ever so entertaining.

NOW, I'm seeing your point though Derek and Show, it's not about being intoxicated, but about having HAIR! It's the presence of hair that causes folks to externalize blame ("I can shoot my lawnmower it's mine!) and to engage in felonious acts (posession of a sawed-off shotgun) and then somehow think that shooting an inantimate object will "teach it a lesson".

Break out the razors, folks! :-)

How can you look at that picture and say it's not about the hair.

Jeff can you tell us again how you lost your boat motor?
