File under: A Fool and His Money. Ripping a page out of the Yippie! handbook, misguided philanthropist-cum-moron Kevin Shelton shot $10,000 in two dollar bills from his “cash cannon” at a mall in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Six people were injured grabbing for the cash; one person broke an arm. “They were trampling all over me,” 14 year-old Lashawnda Marin told the Washington Post. And that was just on the line for Mrs. Field’s double fudge cookies. (High-O!)
Not a funny story, but the fact that the police spokesman quoted by the Post is named Bill Proffitt is pretty darn funny.
