Default Wife dies by Cannon (not the printer)

Strangeness

http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/201...lled_by_h.html

POTRERO, Calif. — A woman was killed early this morning after her husband accidentally fired a homemade cannon into their home. The husband had allegedly been drinking, CBS Los Angeles reported.

The 33-year-old woman was found dead around 12:15 a.m. after a cannonball fired by her husband and another man smashed into the home within the Twin Lakes Resort mobile home park, according to CBS.

Unusual activity has occurred before in this area, which is near the Mexican border, authorities said.

San Diego County Sheriff’s Department homicide detectives are investigating the death.

The only thing that surprised me is that it didn't happen here in my beloved Florida, typically the happening place for all things "weird news" related, 'specially in regards to drunks and trailer parks...

I believe the Biblical term here is that she was canonized.

Moral of the story - don't play with your balls when you're drunk?

It is rare that every sentence in a news report leaves me scratching my head but... this one does.

I know that the linked article shows a picture of a cannon but, it's a stock photo. The article says it was a "homemade" cannon. What if it was really little more than a big ole "potato gun"? I mean... this is a trailer park after all. What more undignified way to die than to be murdered by a potato?!
