Derringer a harbinger? Don’t shoot the messenger!
Blog Guy, I just saw that Johnny Depp movie “Public Enemies.” Somebody told me they were auctioning off one of John Dillinger’s real guns.
Yep, it sold on Saturday, for $95,600.
Are you kidding me? The Dillinger Derringer?
I don’t kid. They wouldn’t identify the winning bidder, but it may have been actor Tom Berenger.
Making it the Berenger Dillinger Derringer? Did Dillinger ever shoot anybody with it?
He slightly wounded a dog with it. In the derriere.
Gasp! Shot in the derriere by the Berenger Dillinger Derringer? What kind of a dog?
A terrier. Oops, sorry, the Word Police are here to take me away for going too far. Excuse me, officer, may I have a Perrier?
