    I suppose he's already had plenty of practice at home.

    What do you think it would happen in the case that he managed to hit him?
    Hmm... Didn't somebody say that the unluckiest person in the world would be the one who tried to assassinate Bush, but got his gun jammed?

    Anyway, more people would join in on the gangbanging!

    There's even a thread about this.
    It did brighten my day when I heard of it.

    Exactly right (although the statue thing was at least almost completely staged), and don't forget this not as well known, but just as funny, example of the phenomenon .

    That was my first thought too. I expected him to be if not shot than at least overpowered by the SS before he could reload.

    Good point.

    I believe the guy was taken outside, beaten, and then arrested just for that gesture.

    A moment of hilarity and then months of woe.

    What a dumbass.
