Hey Blog Guy! I got a real gun for Christmas – a revolver! So where can I go to show people what a bad-ass I am now?

I’m afraid the bad-ass world has passed you buy, Ace. Little-bitty handguns just don’t do it anymore.

overkill smurfs 340Really? What does it take these days?

Check out this top photo. These dudes, showing off their new rocket propelled grenades, appear to be ready for the world’s shortest gang fight.

I’d say it will last about a quarter of a second, from the time the first shot is fired.

Oh. I was thinking about going south of the border. What about Colombia?

Are you stupid? Even the Smurfs have their own army down there!

The SMURFS are armed?

Sure. Look at this photo on the right. That’s Unstable Smurf showing off his grenade collection before heading off to “teach Gargamel a thing or two.” Hey, where you going?

Out to exchange my gun for a Kindle.

Poor Ace suffering from RPG envy. Well Ace go ahead and get a Kindle but come the zombie apocalypse you will wish you stuck with the revolver. Unless you plan on using the Kindle to double-tap a zombie in the head in which case you just broke the Kindle and can’t even read Great Expectations as the zombie nibbles on your leg. Bummer dude.

Why do they display seized weapons? :-(

Umm…. that could be a tricky one, fwd… you see… it could have something to do with the police showing that they ACTUALLY work?

If they are going to display the grenades, can they not at least line them up neatly?

Exactly, Crow. I refer you to another recent posting: 10/04/06/high-caliber-artistes-needed/
