“…in this room, that I know of, to carry this force.” says the DEA agent teaching a class on gun safety seconds before he shoots himself in the foot! Seriously, this really happened, and it’s kind of funny. Well, maybe that’s the wrong word to use since someone did get injured… But admit it, the irony of the situation is tremendously thick. And if he’s the most qualified person in that room to handle the weapon he accidentally shot himself with, how scary is that?!?
I consider it a small miracle that no one was seriously injured. Obviously this guy should not have been teaching this class, and I would bet that he was not the only person in the room “professional enough to carry that force”. But why was the gun loaded in a classroom in the first place? And why was there at least one little kid in the class? You can see someone carrying her out of the classroom near the end of the video. I don’t really know what else to say, so watch it for yourself… and don’t worry if you surprise yourself with a chuckle – I don’t think it means you’re twisted or anything… just a healthy dose of irony. If I was not writing this post so close to bedtime, I would use the opportunity for jokes on puns aplenty about shooting oneself in the foot, putting one’s foot in mouth… oh, too easy, but not when I’m this tired! Enjoy, and note how the guy is able to keep his composure and regain control of the classroom, all while being in tremendous pain and presumably bleeding all over the floor – he finally just limps on out of the classroom!
